    Fall/Winter- Helps reduce the spread of cold/ flu bugs and deodorant.

    🌿 The legend of The Four Thieves tells of four thieves who robbed the homes of the dead during the bubonic plague. One of the thieves was an herbalist who made a tincture from Apple cider vinegar and herbs which they applied to themselves and wore on scarves tied over their faces. The tincture was credited for preventing the thieves from contracting the plague and keeping them healthy during their deeds.
    One account of the story says they were eventually brought to trial and given their freedom in return for the potion, another is they were forced to bury the bodies of the dead and released after they survived as they were believed to be Witches.

    Regardless of the ending, the formula survives and has been used ever since as a powerful antiseptic, deodorant and insect repellant.

    Our little magical green bottles are the tincture of lore, a magical infusion of organic apple cider vinegar with the Mother, essential oil of Rosemary, Clove, Mint, Lavender and Sage and a couple other essential oils.

    The strong herbs cover the scent of the vinegar from humans while allowing the powerful astringent to work its magic.

    **SPRAY**

    Our potion starts with aloe Vera juice, we then add Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother and infuse with essential oil of Mint, Lavender, Sage, Clove, Rosemary and our secret EO.

    We present it in a green glass 2 ounce bottle to prevent loss of potency. **May be in an amber glass bottle depending on supply at this time**

    We also offer refills of 16 oz in amber glass to allow for extended shelf life for a seasons worth of protection. We do suggest storing this in the refrigerator for longer shelf life.


    Added to the bottle (to ensure a consistent blend when shaken) are NATURAL STONES stones.

    Be sure to remove the stones when the potion is gone and place with your other stones and crystals.

    The bottle can be reused for your own personal blend and the stones may be left in if desired.

    I recommend cleaning the bottle and stones well and filling with spring water and returning the stones for a great on the go facial spritz to refresh and protect.

    SUMMER ADVISORY- During the hot summer temps your products may benefit from shipping Monday through Wednesday to keep them from sitting in hot temps during transit (packages don't typically move on Saturday or Sunday). If you would like us to hold your parcel to allow it to start its trip on these days, let us know via messages and we will happily help you with this.
    Be sure to allow your products to cool off in the air conditioned air prior to use.
    USE YOUR BEST JUDGEMENT WHEN ORDERING CANDLES, BASED ON THE TEMPS IN YOUR SPECIFIC AREA. USPS and UPS do not pay claims for heat damage in transit and as such, we are unable to refund or replace items damaged from heat in transit.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I trim and light my wooden wick?

    Check out our blog for care and burning tips
    www.teresalynns.com/blog

    If lighting seems difficult, the wick is too far above the surface of the wax when the candle is initially lit. Always light at the wax level, not the top of the wick.

     Solution: Make sure the wick is trimmed to be no longer than 1/8” – 3/16” / 6.4mm – 4.8mm above the wax. This seems counterintuitive, as we think a longer wick will make a larger flame, but it will not. The longer the wick, the harder it is for the wax to flow up to the top.

    Shipping costs

    Everyone in the US gets a deal on shipping with our all for one shipping cost of no more than $10.00! Whether you purchase 1 or 1001 items your cost doesn't change! This saves the average order between $5-10 per order (way more outside the midwest)!

    Are Soy Candles Safe?

    Now let’s talk about wax. Unless you are eating your candles (which you shouldn’t be) you don’t need to worry about them being produced with “Organic Soy wax”. This is good because organic soy wax doesn’t exist.

    The process of converting the oil into a wax itself renders the wax ineligible for organic certification. Even if a manufacture used the 5-9% of soybeans grown in the USA that are Organic Bean, the process itself makes them not organic.
    Should you worry about this? The simple answer is no, soy wax is safe. You should worry about a company that claims their soy candles are organic. We use wax made with only Renewable Midwest Grown Soybeans.

    We use only phthalate free fragrance oils and essential oil blends in our products.

    Return to Sender packages

    Packages received back to us as RTS (Return to Sender) may be resent at your request by purchasing a postage listing customized for your parcel with a verified address.

    We are not responsible for invalid addresses, forwarded mail or refused parcels and will not refund or pay return shipping.

    Return postage will be calculated at our actual cost, not the discounted rate of $10.00 we offer on original purchases.

    We will contact you via messages with a link to the shipping listing which will be active for 100 days.

    After the 100 day period the listing will expire and the parcel contents will be donated to a local charity when appropriate.

    Allergy and sensitivities

    We use products that may be made with nuts, dairy, soy, plant materials, essential oils and fragrances.

    There is always the possibility for cross exposure within our studio/lab. People with sensitivities or allergies should consider avoiding scented and fragrances products.

    Are scented candles and skincare products triggers for asthma or allergies?
    Although millions of Americans regularly use scented products without any negative effects, it is always possible that a particular fragrance might trigger a negative reaction in a very small percentage of sensitive individuals. Individuals with known sensitivities to specific fragrances may want to avoid products with scents.

    How long do our candles burn?

    The burn time for our candles varies based different variables, such as wax type. wick size, fragrance and type of vessel used. As a general average, they burn an average 7-9 hours per ounce of wax.
    Following our candle care and instruction guide will give you the best burn from each candle. Be sure to read and follow your candle care card included with your order.

    Returns

    To be eligible for a return, your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unused, with labels, and in its original packaging.

Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted. Return shipping label cost will be deducted from your refund. Original shipping is not refundable. 

A $5.00 supplies fee applies to all returns.
    Please keep in mind, the cost to return your item will likely be more than your discounted original shipping cost. We always suggest gifting your item to save yourself the shipping cost.

    Are scented candles and skincare products triggers for asthma or allergies?
    Although millions of Americans regularly use scented products without any negative effects, it is always possible that a particular fragrance might trigger a negative reaction in a very small percentage of sensitive individuals. Individuals with known sensitivities to specific fragrances may want to avoid products of those scents. In addition, consumers should remember to burn all candles, whether scented or unscented, in a well-ventilated area and test skincare products in a small area before use.
