How do I burn candles safely?

Great Question!

Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Keep lit candle in sight at all times!

Never burn a candle on or near anything that might catch fire, like loose papers, fabric, bedding, books, drapes, decorations, etc.

Play it safe and give your candle nice clear area to sit on.

Keep lit candles away from drafts--open windows, air conditioners, vents, fans, etc.

Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.Extinguish the flame if it becomes too high or flickers repeatedly.

Trim the wick and check for drafts before re-lighting.If there is any chance you might doze off to sleep, blow out your candle immediately!

Wait until the flame extinguishes completely and clears of smoke before replacing our topper lid.If you’ve created a large wax pool during your burn, blow it out gently to avoid wax splattering.

Don’t try to take a selfie while holding a lit candle (guilty…)

Are your candles clean?

Our candles are clean-burning and non-toxic. We work with the top global fragrance houses to develop and manufacture our scents, which contain both naturally-harvested and safe-synthetic ingredients.

All of our fragrances are naturally paraben and phthalate-free, and we follow strict international safety standards and rigorous testing set by IFRA.

How strong are the scents?

We spent a lot of time experimenting and tweaking our formulation in order to get the strength just right.

Overall, we prefer fragrance notes that are more subtle in character and avoid scents that may overpower.

Do you test on animals?

No! All of our candles are cruelty-free and vegan.

What size are the candles?

We currently offer one size. Our candles are poured in cylindrical glasses that are

Each glass is filled with 11 oz of wax, which equates to about 60 hours of burn time. The glasses themselves hold up to 13 oz, like a nice cocktail glass.
