safe Fragrance

beautifully scented, clean burn

safe fragrance

From the beginning, our aim was to create great-smelling candles that are safe to use. We assumed the best way to achieve this was to use only natural ingredients and essential oils. But we quickly learned that just because something is labeled "natural" doesn't necessarily mean it's safe to use in candle production. And that some natural ingredients can actually emit harmful chemicals when burned. It didn't take long before we made the shift towards fragrances synthesized in laboratories known as "safe synthetics.” These fragrances are designed to mimic the scent of natural elements when it's impractical to obtain or extract essential oils from the actual botanical sources, not to mention have a better scent throw than essential oils. Using safe synthetics removes most allergens that naturally occur in aromatic oils derived from botanical or plant sources. We've infused our candles with a 12.5 safe synthetic fragrance load to ensure an optimal hot throw.

plant based wax

We use coconut wax for fuel because of the many advantages over other waxes used in candles today. For starters, coconuts are a renewable resource and readily available. And, when burned, coconut wax produces very little soot or smoke. Even better, it has a lower melting point that promotes a longer burn time and offers a far better scent throw to soy and paraffin waxes.

renewed life

after the final flicker

With reuse in mind, we imagine the vessel finding a new purpose as a succulent planter, a unique home decor piece, or a phat storage solution for your fat Sharpies! By giving it a second life through repurposing, you’re not only extending the life of your purchase but promoting sustainability.
