Sandalwood

Sandalwood is derived from a large tree that can be found in numerous places across the globe.  Technically speaking, there's well over 100 different types of species of the sandalwood tree; however, only about 10 of those are harvested specifically for their fragrant oil.  Some species are now in a protected state due to over-harvesting.  

The scent of sandalwood is described as: warm, creamy, woody, and masculine.  It's not woody like pine or oak; it's warmer and less "sharp" like pine is.  Sandalwood is common in masculine scents or colognes.  It can amplify or deepen fruity and citrus notes.  Some florals, like jasmine or ylang-ylang rely on sandalwood to help anchor and increase their scent output.  In aromatherapy, sandalwood is believed to bring calm, soothe stress, and help relax someone before bedtime.

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 the United States. We put no additives in our wax.  The wicks are metal-free cotton with a paper core.  Our fragrance oils are high-quality synthetic oils with no phthalates and many include bases made from essential oils.

When selecting candles, please consider the size of the room you will be burning the candle in.  For more information, please check out our blog post here.

 Candle Container Volume  Dimensions Burn Time*
Single Wick Tumbler 10 ounces 4.125" tall / 3.125" diam. 55-60 hours
Honeycomb Triple Wick 16 ounces 3.6" tall / 4" diam. 80-85 hours

*Burn time is approximate and based on proper candle burning guidelines.

  • 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.
