What's the story with White Squirrels?

Glad you asked! The name comes from a very fond memory of the same albino squirrel who would come back to my childhood home every year and live in our big elm tree in the front yard! My family always had such a good time together trying to spot him!

Burning Instructions

ALWAYS trim wick to 1/4" before EVERY lighting. For the first burn, it is important to burn the candle until the wax fully melts across the width of the candle creating a full wax pool. It will take approximately 1 hour for every 1 inch in diameter of the actual candle size. Burn within sight. Keep away from flammable objects. Keep away from children and pets. Keep candle free of any foreign materials including matches and wick trimmings. Only burn the candle on a level, fire resistant surface. Do not burn candle for more than four hours at a time. Stop use when only 1/4" of wax remains.


Why soy wax?

Although soy wax can be a bit fussy to work with, we believe it is important to use only high quality, all natural ingredients in our products. There are several benefits to using 100% soy wax:

All Natural



Clean Burning

Longer Burn Time

Biodegradable & Water Soluble

What is frosting?

Each candle is handmade in small batches. Some "frosting" may occur. This in no way affects the burnability or fragrance of a candle. It is a natural byproduct of natural wax.

What is a wet spot?

Some "wet spots" may occur where the wax has pulled away from the side of the jar. This in no way affects the burnability or fragrance of a candle. They are caused by shrinkage and air bubbles that occur as the wax is cooling inside the container and is common with natural soy.

My candle is lumpy after burning! HELP!

Ever wonder why the tops of your candles are a little lumpy after extinguishing and other times smooth as butter? No, there’s nothing wrong with the candle...its actually a by-product of using an all-natural wax! Rest assured it will not effect the performance of the candle. So, embrace those lumps, bumps and imperfections!

Do you use lead or zinc wicks?

Nope! All of our wicks are flat braided cotton with paper threads woven into the cotton.

What makes them smell so good?

Fragrance oil infused with natural essential oils. We are commited to only using clean scents - free of Phthalates and other harmful carcinogens.
