About Our Products
Our products are made with an all-natural American 100% soy wax, which becomes scented with a combination of essential and nonsynthetic fragrance oils! Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax; because of this, our candles will burn slower and longer than paraffin and paraffin blend candles. Soy also burns with little to zero petro soot, creating a much more eco-friendly and healthier alternative to most candles in the market today. Our candles are made specifically for people like us in mind. You see, one of my daughters and I suffer from allergies, asthma, and migraines. So I decided to focus on making a product that would not trigger any of that for us and people like us. Needless to say, they are safe for pets too. Also, our candles differ between cotton and wooden wicks! Fun fact; when lit, wooden wicks give off a pleasant crackling sound similar to a fireplace. Our products are cruelty, paraben, phthalate, and toxin-free! Read more about us on our website and social media platforms and even find testimonials. We are sure you'll find more than one choice of candle you'll want to try and soon enough become part of our family too.

Why should I trim the wick?
The shorter height allows the wax to capillary up the wick to feed the flame properly. When a wick gets too long, it cannot draw wax up to the top of the wick. Therefore, the wick itself will start to burn.
