    Southern Sweet Tea

    Sun Steeped Black Tea, Bergamot, Cane Sugar and just a touch of citrus...just like we make for front porch sipping out of mason jars.

    This candle smells just like the sweet Southern classic tea. Sweet and fruity with strong tea and sugar. I remembering drinking "iced tea" for the first time away from home as a kid and learning that most people in Indiana, including restaurants, don't put sugar in their iced tea. These days I substitute sweetener for the sugar, sometimes I make that simple syrup I grew up on.

    This candle is calorie free, so no worries...

    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 WOOD 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.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I trim and light my wood 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

    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 Midwest Grown Soybeans.

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

    Return policy

    We do not accept returns or exchanges to ensure each customers order is fresh and new to them.

    We always suggest starting with the smallest size offered on new products to ensure you love it before adding the larger size to your collection.

    We always strive to ensure the satisfaction of our beloved customers. If you have received a damaged item we will help you file your claim with USPS, if you received the incorrect item we will replace it as soon as possible. If you have an issue, please contact us.

    What do I do if my item is received damaged or is lost in transit?

    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/LOSS is now the responsibility of the customer as USPS has changed their policies and often requires the recipient 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.**

    Holiday Shipping

    USPS is experiencing critical demand this year and there is the possibility your packages will not arrive in time for your holiday. Etsy provides tracking numbers in your invoice as soon as we print your label and package your order. Please use this to check on your shipment as we can’t possibly respond to all the tracking and shipping questions at this time.

    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.
    We are not responsible for invalid addresses, forwarded mail or refused parcels and will not refund or pay return shipping.
    We will contact you via messages with a link to the shipping listing which will be active for 30 days.

    Summer Lotion Shipping

    Please see our heat advisory at the beginning of each listing as high temps (80 degrees +) can cause melting, settling 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.
