From the containers we use for our candles down to our business cards we strive to do everything with purpose to have a positive social and environmental impact. We also include our sources below for transparency and to honor those who have helped us get to where we are today.
Are your candles 100% soy wax?
All of our wax is made from soy beans and coconuts grown in the U.S. (Golden Wax). By supporting our candles you're supporting domestic products and promoting a renewable resource. We also add a little bit of coconut oil to help smooth out the wax and help it burn better.
Where do you source your wood wicks?
Our wood wicks that crackle when they burn are sourced from sustainable lumber farms and every purchase you make helps plant more trees (https://woodenwick.com/pages/about-us).
What kind of fragrance oils do you use?
All of our fragrances are infused with essential oils (https://www.candlescience.com/learning/whats-in-fragrance-oil).
To clarify, our fragrances aren’t 100% essential oils. It’s difficult to produce a candle with completely essential oils that’s highly fragrant. Feel free to checkout the CandleScience link for more info. If you’re set on essential oils we recommend water diffusion or homemade reed diffusers.
Do you offer refills on your candles?
With all of our containers we offer a refill or deposit program* to promote reuse and recycling. By getting a refill or exchanging your container you're helping to reduce the amount of containers that end up in the landfill. But, if that wasn’t enough, you also get a discount (30% off the original value) in the process. So, every time you opt to save your container you can get your own tin can, mason jar, or ceramic container refilled for 30% of its original value. If you're interested in getting a refill for a container visit our Contact Us page and drop a form submission to let us know you want a container refilled! You can also come by the Athens Farmers Market or our storefront in Monroe, Ga.
For our non-local fans out there we know it’s not very economical or sustainable to mail back your empty container but since we love sustainability we’re willing to give y’all 15% off your next order on our online shop if you send us a picture of your cleaned out and recycled container, or repurposing it in some way (we recommend using them as pots for succulents.)
*Refills currently only offered in the Athens and Monroe areas.
