About Our Candles

We Use Coconut Wax, Because It Is Sustainable, And Obtained Via A Natural Process

Coconut wax is produced by pressing the oil out of the coconut meat, then putting the oil through the process of hydrogenation. It is then filtered and cleaned, giving you 100% natural, and fully biodegradable wax.

Coconuts are a renewable and high yield crop, which means less coconuts are needed to our product. This makes it one of the most eco-friendly waxes on the market!  Along with being sustainable, there are other major benefits:

A Slow And Even Burn

Coconut wax burns slower than any other wax on the market so you can enjoy one of your favorite candles for longer! Since it also has an even burn, you can enjoy all of what the candle has to offer instead of being left with half the product stuck to the sides!

Smokeless And Soot-free

Ever notice a black mark where your candle is burning? The reason for that is non-coconut wax candles have toxins in the wax.

Coconut candles are non-toxic.  They burn cleaner than all other wax candles so you don’t need to worry about the potential of carcinogens being released into your home.

Amazing Scent Throw

Fragrances blend wonderfully with coconut wax, giving your candle a strong hot scent throw. What that means is that when your candle is lit, the scent should fill your room..

Deforestation Is Not Associated With Coconut Wax

Like everything, popularity growth means mass production.  Thankfully, unlike the palm oil industry, the coconut industry has found a way to avoid around this problem by giving the locals a chance to make a living.

Local farmers grow the coconut trees on their land, without pesticides or herbicides, and harvest the coconuts by hand so there is no need for giant tractors.

It’s A Non-GMO Product

GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism.  This is a process that changes things at the genetic level to increase yields, harvests and other things.  These days most fruits and vegetables have been  genetically modified, but the coconuts are one of the very few left that have remained untouched.

This means that the coconut wax used in our candles is totally pure! Not even pesticides are used while farming, due to the hard protective exterior of coconuts that naturally ward off insects and wildlife.

Care Instructions

It is important to us that your product lasts as long as possible in the best condition. In order to achieve this, some care and maintenance may need to be performed by you.

Concrete & Dough Bowl Care

These one of a kind hand made vessels are a beautiful addition to any room. Let your imagination run wild for ways to use the vessel after the candle burns down. Hairline cracks are very common in concrete and dough bowls and may occur in your vessel, it should not affect the way your candle burns. We cannot guarantee this will not happen. Both are natural materials, if there are any signs of deterioration it is time to replace your vessel.

To remove remaining wax in concrete pop in the freezer for an hour or so, it should come right out. Then when the vessel is at room temperature wash with warm soapy water. Never pour boiling water into your vessel as this time will most likely make it crack. Dough bowl remaining wax should be easy to scoop out. Both have been sealed with a water-based protective sealer. The dough bowl was also sealed with a flame retardant however, with washing and use over time this will deplete. To get the most from your vessels don’t wash repeatedly and please don’t place in the dishwasher.

Note: Lemon juice, red wine and oily foods may stain the concrete. Place parchment paper on the bottom before using with food. This should help protect the surface from staining.

Suggested After Candle Usage: Dough bowls make great centerpieces. During winter use pinecones, moss, ornaments, antlers, candles and greenery. In fall use pumpkins, pinecones, leaves, greenery, acorns and nuts, add branches and candles.

Concrete vessels make great planters for succulents, potpourri, makeup brushes… just let your imagination flow!

Before Your First Candle Lighting

  • Trim the wick to 1/4 inch
  • Plan on keeping it lit for 2-3 hours
  • This ensures the wax melts evenly & prevents tunneling
  • After each burn, please trim your wick of any part that is black as this will help the candle burn cleaner and longer!
Avoid drafts, vents or air currents. This helps with uneven burning. Candle vessels may be warm to the touch. Never place a candle directly on your furniture or near anything that can catch FIRE!
