The sophisticated Southern Floral scent of Gardenia blossoms, that sweet and romantic scent that has you wishing for long days, porch sitting and sweet iced tea.
Our interpretation of this is classic summer scent is elevated with essential oil of Tuberose and true vanilla.
Our listing pictures of the flowers are from my friend Gail Dunmyer who sends me a picture of her Gardenias every year when they bloom 🥰.
•100% Midwest Soy wax
•Natural Patented Lumentique wooden wick
Middle: Tuberose, Foliage
ABOUT OUR PROCESS
Our ingredients are Responsibly sourced, American grown, Vegan, Carbon Neutral, Cruelty Free and Handmade in Indiana.
We use a special SOY WAX made from 100% Midwest Soy Beans, grown mainly in Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky. Most of these beans were in the field less than a year before you lit the candle made from them. Our soy wax is a renewable and sustainable crop that doesn’t require deforestation or oil supplies, it is only limited by how much our farmers want to grow!
Our wicks are patented Crackling Wicks from the Wooden Wick Company. American Grown, hand cut wooden wickS are made with another business model we support:
The Wooden Wick Co partnered with TREES FOR THE FUTURE. For Every $100 of Wooden Wicks sold, one tree is planted. This Year to Date, The Wooden Wick Co. & Community has planted 10,000 Trees!
TREES PLANTED WITH TREES FOR THE FUTURE:
– Create educational opportunities for children
– Empower Women
– Build strong communities
– Permanently increase the income of farmers
– Help families to feed themselves
– Provide permanent and seasonal work
Our tints are manufactured using vegetable oils or ingredients extracted from vegetable oils. These new formulations are now Prop 65 and REACH Compliant.
Our jars are made just next door in Lancaster, Ohio by Anchor Hocking since 1905. They are recyclable and reusable!!
We source biodegradable peanuts (dissolve in water) and post consumer made boxes for our shipping needs.
We have a way to go, but we are striving to meet our own person goals for a completely locally sourced, handmade, eco friendly craft.
Our candles are an affordable luxury you can FEEL GOOD about adding to your home. We use simple clean ingredients, minimal labeling and packaging and focus on the product in the jar.
Our wooden wick candles are NOT ASSOCIATED with Newell Brands Inc. and its subsidiaries, including the WOODWICK(R) brand.
We proudly use Lumentique patented wicks from The Wooden Wick, Co. exclusively in the making of our candles.

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.
(The Wooden Wick patented wood wick company).
Bulk orders of more than 20 candles (or more than we have in inventory for a particular scent) require a 2 week process time.
Bulk orders of 20 or more mixed and matched from current inventory will be processed in our current processing time (usually 1-3 days).
We will set up a custom listing for your purchase with calculated shipping and a 20% discount.
We do not offer custom labels for wholesale but do offer unlabeled for 20 or more or a single scent.
Orders of less than 20 candles do not meet our wholesale qualifications, are limited to selections currently available in our inventory, receive whatever our current sale (if any) discount is and a flat rate of $9 shipping for the entire order.
Everyone gets a deal on shipping with our all for one shipping cost of $9.00! Whether you purchase 1 or 1001 items your cost doesn't change!
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.
We accept returns for our WAX items only.
**In order to remain FDA Compliant we cannot accept returns on our Skincare or Hygiene items (for health/hygiene reasons).**

***When filing a claim with USPS, the damaged article, container, packaging, and any other items received must be presented to the Postal Service for inspection along with proof of payment from your financial institution. Be certain to safely save the entire box, label and all the contents.**

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 $9.00 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.
Please see our heat advisory at the beginning of each listing as high temps (80 degrees +) can cause melting, settling(may appear less full) and thinning of lotions. Please only purchase if this is a risk you are willing to take. We do have express shipping offered to help prevent heat damage in shipping.

Wow! I sent this candle as a Mother’s Day gift for my mom. Not only did it come with the candle (she said it smelled wonderful & authentic to gardenias), but it also came with little candies & sample candles. The seller printed my note in a card as well. Very thoughtful, highly recommend!
