What type of wax do you use for your candles? TOP
Our candles are made from 100% soy wax with no additives other than fragrance oil.
Can I use the melted wax on my skin? TOP
Please do not use the melted wax from your candle on your skin. I have had so many people ask me if they can do so, and I simply cringe. The whole melted wax/fire thing is enough to scare me, but let me let you in on a little candle making info. When I make lotion using my oils, I only use 1% of oil in my lotion. When I use that SAME oil to make a candle, I use at least 9% of the oil in my wax. That is a LOT of oil, but it is what makes my candles so incredibly strong. The reason lotions contain a low percentage of oil (and not just my lotion, but most lotions) is because the oils can irritate your skin if they are too concentrated. So not only are you risking burning yourself, you are also risking an allergic reaction. Another thing...not all oils are considered "skin safe." So even if non skin safe oils are used at a lower concentration, they are simply not good for you. Sorry to get up on my proverbial soap box, but I just care about my customers. I don't want to see anyone burned or breaking out in horrible bumps!
Do you recycle your jars? TOP
I have had many people offer to send me their used jars so that I can reuse them. While I think it is wonderfully sweet of people to offer, I just do not feel comfortable refilling jars which have already had candles burned in them. I consider it a liability factor and I just don't want to take that risk when dealing with anything I sell, especially a candle. So, your jar can be washed out with soap and warm water when you are through with it, and you can use it around your house. I have seen everything from q-tips to quarters stored in my recycled jars.
