Each item in my shop is handmade by me in my Tallahassee Florida home...I take great pride in creating quality, great smelling unique hand poured candles and melts... Scents and their strengths are personal and subjective, and I ask you to keep that in mind when ordering.
My candles are hand poured using 100% soy wax and phthalate-free, high quality fragrance oils. Because all of these items are handmade, they may have some imperfections such as discoloration of the wax, Discoloration of the candle does not effect the quality or performance of the candle.. it’s just a common variable when using natural ingredients... slightly off-centered label, tiny markings on the outside of the jars, difference in the colors, scents...etc... etc...None of these impact the quality of the candle or their performance...you might see colored dots at the button of the wax melts...that does not effect the performance of the wax melt...
Some of the photographs might have different color variations...that’s due to the different lighting in my house at the time I took the photograph... colors may vary between printed product vs. what you see on your screen, as monitors and printers vary in the way that they portray colors. All my bottles are hand cut by me individually... hand sanded by me individually....therefor it is impossible to duplicate any of them...when I cut the bottles it’s always a hit and miss situation so I rejoice when I manage to cut a straight line..Some of the labels on the bottles might be nicked or peeled or a little torn...I do my best to keep them as neat as possible...to keep them from being torn or faded ...but since I cut and sand everything by hand it is not always possible....All the labels on my candles and wax melts are made by me so occasionally you might find errors with the spelling or they might be off centered or I have goofed with a design...


My candles are made with the recommended amount of oils by the fragrance suppliers. My candles vary in strength. If you’re having a hard time smelling it, try placing it in a smaller room. To make sure you’re not getting used to the smell, you can step outside or shut the room’s door for a while to re-expose yourself to the scent

This wax melts totally liquid, unlike paraffin wax, and needs to be kept in a container. I recommend a burn time of at least 1 hour and at most 2 hours at a time to prevent wax from tunneling (not burning long enough) and the jar from overheating (burning for too long). The whole top layer of wax should melt each time you light it to prevent tunneling. When the wax re-solidifies it may display craters. This is normal with soy wax. I cannot guarantee it will always have a smooth surface.

Please limit your burning time to prevent the entire candle from liquefying since this could overheat the container. Soy wax has a tendency to have frosted tops or an inconsistent surface (i.e. striations/craters). This is entirely normal. I will do my best to provide you with a smooth top.

To get the best results, follow these tips each time you burn your candle

Trim and center your wicks. Flames can get out-of-control if the wick is left untrimmed, which leads to flickering, smoke and soot. An ideal wick length is right around 1/4”

• Trim the wick to 1/4" before lighting the candle each time.
• Allow the wax to melt all the way to the edge of the jar on each burn to prevent tunneling and provide maximum scent throw.
• Keep candles away from drafts and flammable objects.
• Do not burn for more than 4 hours at a time.
• Never leave a candle burning unattended.
• Stop burning the candle when only 1/4" of wax remains.


💖 Care instructions
⚠️ The first time you light your candle is most important to the life of your candle. For the first burning, keep your candle lit until the melt pool reaches the edge of the container and is approximately 1/4" deep. Each burn after, allow your melt pool to reach the edge of the container before extinguishing. This will prevent tunneling and increase your candle's scent throw.

⚠️ Always keep your wick trimmed to 1/4”

⚠️ Always place your candle on a heat resistant surface when burning.

⚠️ Do not move your candle while it is burning or if the wax is liquid.

⚠️ Never leave a burning candle unattended.

⚠️ Do not allow pets or children access to lit candles.

⚠️ Discontinue burning when there's 1/4" wax remaining

Warning: To prevent fire or injury: Remove packaging before use. Use only in tea-light warmers or UL listed electric warmers approved for wax melts. Read and follow all instructions provided with your warmer before use. Do NOT leave melter unattended while in use. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

Instructions: Do NOT add water. Do NOT melt on stovetop or in non-approved appliances. Use only in well ventilated areas away from flammable objects. Discontinue use if dish contains less than 1/2” of wax.

Not edible/Do Not Consume - Keep Out of Eyes and Mouth - Discontinue Use If Irritation Occurs - Consult a Physician with Concerns

Tarts are a great alternative to candles for people who prefer not to have or are unable to have an open flame

Always use with caution around pets & children as wax can become hot.
