Sisters of the Moon - Aromatic resin, Patchouli, Hemp and Clove bud oil.
The song “Sisters of the Moon” was conceived when Stevie Nicks caught her reflection in the mirror and, in an out-of-body experience, took pity on the woman she saw staring back at her. Its lyrics are some of her best and most cryptic: She is appraising these versions of herself—the superstar performer and the detached spectator—and trying to reconcile them. Within Nicks’ performance is the blueprint for rebalancing a fractured soul. –Sheldon Pearce
**So we make our choices
When there is no choice
And we listen to their voices
Ignoring our own voice**
2020 seems to be the year, perhaps the start of a decade, of reconciliation and facing demons of our own and others.
Repairing fractured ethos and healing generational injuries.
I have a circle of women who are more like sisters to me than just friends. We seem to be connected by the Moon, nature, common pasts and paths.
During these difficult times, I have been blessed by their presence from afar, messages, care packages and late night and early morning calls or texts from these ladies.
Find your circle, your tribe and keep them close. This candle, the song and the aroma that fills my house somehow makes friends from afar seem closer, calms my spirit and softens the day for me.
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

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.

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 are happy to assist you with filing a claim with USPS if you received a damaged item or your package is lost.
FILING CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES is now the responsibility of the customer as USPS has changed their policies and requires the BUYER to present the damaged package along with proof of payment from your financial institute (all things we do not have).
Note: You must create an account with the USPS if you don’t already have one.
***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.**
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 and 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 $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.
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.
Many of our item listings will include the focal scents/oils we use. We do not provide inclusive lists of our essentials oils used in all of our blends and formulas as many are proprietary (trade secrets) combinations specific to our brand.
The burn time for our candles varies based different variables, such as wax type. wick size, fragrance and type of vessel used. For smaller candles with smaller wicks, they burn an average 7-9 hours per ounce of wax. Larger candles may have large wicks which uses more wax to burn. They burn about 5-7 hours per ounce. Our speciality candles with beeswax blends may burn 7-9 hours per ounce, while our tea lights average 5-6 hours each.
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.
