What are your candles made out of?

We use a 100% soy wax, made from US grown soybeans.

Soy burns cooler and longer than paraffin, and as a renewable resource, it is superior for the environment. We believe that uncolored soy is not only safer to burn, but is also more beautiful in its natural color.

Our wicks are lead-free and are made of braided cotton.

Please note that our candles are made from 100% natural ingredients. Slight changes in color and small imperfections in the wax are perfectly normal, and will not affect the performance of your candle. We recommend burning your candles within one year for best performance.


Are your fragrances natural?

Our fragrances are a combination of essential oils and fragrance oils. All of our fragrances are phthalate-free and adhere to RIFM and IFRA standards for safety and purity.


What is the fragrance load?

Each candle boasts a 10% fragrance load.
