Ask anyone what this smells like and most of the time the response will be "Christmas Tree." Yes, this is the pungent, pine-woody scent of spruce. Although Christmas trees are typically in the fir or pine family, the blue or Norway spruce have become popular as well.
In the fragrance world, spruce is more mellow than the loud and sharp pine scent. It has more soil/earthiness to it which rounds it out and makes it more handy for blends. In the aromatherapy world, spruce promotes relaxation and calming; it's soothing to injured or low-mobility persons. It's a grounding fragrance.
Our candles are hand-poured in small batches. The wax we use is vegan, non-GMO soy wax from a renewable source right here in North America. We put no additives in our wax. The wicks are metal-free cotton with a paper core. Our fragrance oils are high-quality with no phthalates and many include bases made from essential oils.

- If you or your recipient reside in an apartment, dorm or other community housing, we kindly recommend ensuring the office receives parcels and has secure pickup arrangements before placing your order.
- From late spring to early fall (depending on your climate), we recommend having the boxes delivered to a location where they are less likely to be left outside in high temperatures or direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
- In the summer months, we only ship on Monday and Tuesday. This keeps the parcel in transit and helps to avoid long weekends stuck in hot shipping vehicles.
- In the winter months, please allow the glass candles to come to room temperature before lighting.
The first few times you light your candle is very important. Please plan on lighting it at a time when it can burn for 2-4 hours (depending on size). Allow the wax to melt as close to the edge of the vessel as possible before extinguishing. If you extinguish the candle prior to this, it will have trouble melting that excess wax during future burns. This is called "tunneling" and results in poor burning.
Trim your wick to 1/4 of an inch before each lighting. Make sure the candle has not been lit for at least 3 hours before re-lighting. Try to keep wick trimmings and debris out of the wax melt pool. Keep the lid on the candle when not in use. Please avoid placing the lid on the candle when it is lit; instead, blow out the candle then place the lid on top.
Always keep the candle on a firm and even, heat-resistant surface. Keep it away from drafts, pets and children.
