About Our Candles
Coconut wax is made from coconut oil which is extracted from the kernel or meat of matured coconuts harvested from the coconut palm (Cocos Nucifera). The coconut wax we use for our products is made here in the USA. The coconut oil used to make our wax comes from a US supplier that imports from the Philippines and Dominican Republic, and is certified organic by the NOP/USDA and certified fair trade by Fair Trade International. Our wax is a non-GMO, pesticide free material that is manufactured ecologically sound, socially just, and economically responsible according to international standards.
fair trade essential oils
We scent our candles using USDA certified organic or wildcrafted essential oils. The only exception being our cinnamon and clove oils but all of our oils are free from pesticides or chemical fertilizers. We believe it’s important to not only use the purest of ingredients but also source them from companies who provide a fair trade to farmers.
lead-free hemp wick
Our hemp core wicks contain absolutely no lead, are not chemically treated, and are braided with pure, unbleached cotton grown in the USA
recycled glass containers
Using recycled glass allows us to conserve natural resources and reduce energy use. It takes the combination of soda, sand, lime plus a lot of heat to melt raw materials into glass. Once glass is created it will essentially always be glass and can take up to 1 million years to biodegrade. We think it’s important to reduce, reuse and recycle whenever possible; that’s why we offer discounts for returned holders and Refill Wax Kits that give you more candle for less.
unbleached muslin bag packaging
A simple and natural solution for packaging is our unbleached muslin bag. Our bags are reuseable and biodegradeable, perfect for holding fruit and vegetables, growing or storing herbs, or toss it into the compost bin at the end of it’s life.
Our labels are made from 100% recycled hemp, including the string! Each one is hand stamped with sealing wax made from natural plant resins. The whole thing is completely biodegradeable.
post consumer waste shipping boxes & biodegradeable taping
We ship our products using boxes and kraft paper made out of 100% recycled, post-consumer waste. The packaging tape we use is a cellulose film derived from wood pulp that decomposes naturally in soil.
