We are excited to offer new 16oz mason jar
soy wax candles in all of our
best selling scents!
These candles will burn over 
100 hours ifyou burn 1-2 hours at a time 
& be sure to trim your wick for 
the longest wax llife! 

All of our candles are made in small batches,
using high quality soy wax & frangrance oils.

Our candles burn smooth & clean, 
when the candle 
is done wash the jar out 
with hot water & soap to reuse. 

I just reworked the labels for 
our new mason jar candles &
they turned out sooo AMAZING! 
We will be updating our beer bottle candle
labels to kraft as well! 

Here is a link to our esty store.. 

We also just added two new stockists!
I will announce who & where when 
the inventory is ready. Stay tuned! 

Happy Thursday friends! -Michelle
