A beautiful and unique candle set into a heavy-bottomed parfait-type glass.  This candle will burn approximately 15-20 hours.
(The best way to burn a soy candle is an hour or two at a time to maximize burn time.)  The glass can be cleaned with hot soapy water and a sponge and safely reused. The glass is food-safe and lead free.

These candles are beautifully scented.  Choose your favorite fragrance from our list below:

About the candle making process:

Luxe candles are hand crafted from start to finish.

First, we start by threading our wicks into their tabs (That's the little metal base on the bottom of a candle wick that holds the wick in place).  The base is hand crimped to hold the wick in place.
Next, a small amount of wax is drizzled in the bottom of the candle vessel, and the base is set into place and allowed to dry.
Then our 100% soy wax base is melted in a large glass pot and poured into each container.
Fragrance and color are added to each container separately, and wax is stirred to blend everything fully.
The candle is allowed to cool to setting, (but not fully solid) then a thin layer of white wax is drizzled over the top of the candle to settle and fill any pock marks or holes that formed from escaping air bubbles while the candle was cooling.  

We then hand torch the outside of the glass to blend the white wax into the colored wax slightly and seal the layers.  It isn't unusual for a marble effect to occur on the top of the candle after this process. We love to tell customers this is a cool way you know your candle is truly one of a kind!

These candles are then cleaned, wrapped, and sent off to their new home!  Each candle is created when ordered and is 100% hand made.


About Soy Candles:

Soy is a sustainable and vegan alternative to other waxes like bee's wax or paraffin wax.  Soy wax is arguably cleaner burning, and reported to be less toxic than other popular waxes.  Despite this, soy wax can and will release soot.  Just like anything you burn with fire, soot is released.


CANDLE SAFETY RULES (www.candle.org)

  • Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
  • Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Trim candlewicks to ¼ inch each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning and dripping.
  • Always use a candle-holder specifically designed for candle use. The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy, and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.
  • Be sure the candle-holder is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.
  • Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
  • Always read and follow the manufacturer’s use and safety instructions carefully. Don’t burn a candle longer than the manufacturer recommends.
  • Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and sooting. Drafts can also blow nearby lightweight items into the flame where they could catch fire.
  • Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room. Don’t burn too many candles in a small room or in a “tight” home where air exchange is limited.
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down. Extinguish the flame if it comes too close to the holder or container. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 2 inches of wax remains or ½ inch if in a container.
  • Never touch or move a burning candle or container candle when the wax is liquid.
  • Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.
  • Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another. This helps ensure they don’t melt one another, or create their own drafts to cause improper burning.
  • Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle. It’s the safest way to prevent hot wax splatters.
  • Never extinguish candles with water. The water can cause the hot wax to splatter and might cause a glass container to break.
  • Be very careful if using candles during a power outage. Flashlights and other battery-powered lights are safer sources of light during a power failure.
  • Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high.  The candle isn’t burning properly. Cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting.
  • Never use a candle as a night light.
