What size are your candles and how long do they burn?
Our candles are an 8oz pour that offers up to 40+ hours of luxurious scent!

What kind of wax are your candles made from?
Our wax is made from apricot, soy, coconut and food-grade paraffin! It’s vegan and non-toxic, making it fully safe to use. Coco-apricot wax burns cleanly and slowly, so our candles can keep your home smelling heavenly for as long as possible before your next restock!

How much room do the candle fragrance cover?
Our 8 oz candle provides 500-800 sq ft of fragrance bloom

How do I keep a clean and steady burn?
Keep your wicks trimmed to about ¼ of an inch prior to being (re)lit. Also make sure to keep your burn sessions limited to 3-4 hours and/or until the entire surface of the wax has fully melted.

Can I reuse my candle jar?
Yes! To remove the last bit of wax in your jar, we recommend running the jar under hot water in your kitchen sink. Remove the wick tab, and then wipe the jar clean. You can repurpose the jar to store your makeup brushes, plant succulents into, or any other creative thing you can think of!


Help! My candle is mushrooming!
A “mushroom” wick occurs when the wax does not burn quickly enough to keep up with the wick, resulting in the accumulation of carbon particles on the wick. It may also occur if your candle is burned for a prolonged period. To repair a mushroom wick, trim the black 'cap' off and bend or 'curl' the tip of the wick.

The flame is high when I burn my candle. What do I do?
Trim the wick 1⁄4 inch before every burn.

How do I stop my candle from tunneling?
Your candle tunnels when the initial/memory burn is for a relatively short period. It is therefore important that your first burn be for at least two to three hours, so the wax edges fully melt and pool before the candle is extinguished.

How do I get rid of the soot around my candle?
Soot commonly accumulates around glass when fire is involved, so this is totally normal. This can be prevented by keeping the wicks trimmed and the candles free of debris. However, if soot does accumulate around your candle jar, leave the jar to cool after burning, then add some coconut oil to paper towel and just wipe off. It’s that easy!

I love candles, but don’t burn them every day. How do I properly store my candles?
Candles last longer when stored at the right temperature, so store away from direct heat and sunlight in a cool, dry, and dark area.
