About Our Candles & Melts

Our candles and melts are hand-poured in small batches in Kaneohe, Hawaii. Burn time for our candles are between 40 and 60 hours.

Eco-friendly, renewable, American-grown soy
Our candles and melts are made with 100% natural soy wax and are not blended with other waxes such as paraffin. Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. Soy is a sustainable resource, burns cleanly, and lasts longer than a paraffin candle.

Free from carcinogens, toxins, and hazardous chemicals
In addition to using cotton and paper wicks (no lead or zinc here), we also use fragrance oils that are 100% phthalate-free. We work with a fragrance house that manufactures fragrance oils specifically for candles. Our custom blends used in our candles and melts are inspired by our island living and cannot be found anywhere else!

The nature of soy candles

Wet spots? Bumpy surface? Discoloration? Fear not; these are natural characteristics of soy candles and do not affect the quality or burn of the candle.

What are wet spots? Wet spots are caused by shrinkage and air bubbles that occur as the wax cools inside of the container. Part of the wax pulls away from the glass and appears to create this particular look (they’re not really “wet”). Changes of room temperature can also create wet spots.

Why is my candle bumpy after burning? The bumpy tops are quite common with soy wax and happens when the rate of cooling is inconsistent; sometimes it will dry with the rough, uneven surface, and sometimes it will dry smooth as glass. This is a by-product of an all-natural wax.

What causes discoloration? Whenever candles are exposed to light, they can change colors over time. To help reduce color fading, it is best to keep your candles away from areas with excessive heat and direct sunlight.
