" I need to see my own beauty and to continue to be reminded that I am enough, that I am worthy of love without effort, that I am beautiful , that the texture of my hair and that the shape of my curves, the size of my lips, the color of my skin, and the feelings that I have are worthy and ok" - Tracee Ellis Ross
Shades of Beauty was created for this exact reason, no matter the shade YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, and when you look at yourself and the candle please let it be a reminder.
This candle is loaded with complexity, as we often can be. With notes of Patchouli, Cedarwood, Chestnut, Mandarin, Vanilla, Oud, Musk.
All of our candles are made with safe, non-toxic, and natural ingredients. After suffering with migraines for years, I realized that my favorite candles were the culprit. I didn’t want to give up my candle habit, though, so I created candles that everyone can safely enjoy.
We use only wooden or natural cotton wicks. The wooden wicks will crackle when lit. Each candle is 10 oz and has a burn time of 75-80 hours. Since they are all made out of natural soy wax, they have a slower burn time than most commercial candles.
To optimize burn time and prevent tunneling, be sure to create a “burn memory” the first time you light your candle. Burn until the wax is melted all the way to the glass sides. This usually takes about 2 hours. Then extinguish. Never burn your candle for longer than 4 hours at a time.
To ensure even burning, only burn your candle in still air. If there is a draft that cannot be avoided, periodically turn your candle so that it will burn evenly. Candles burned in drafts will often smoke. So be aware of the air currents in your home.
Proper storage will keep your candle burning bright. Soy wax candles are very sensitive to heat and light. Store your candle in a cool, dark area. Avoid overly warm storage options, like over the stove or near a heat source. Always store candles upright.
Respect your candle! Trim your candle wick each and every time before you light it. It is important to trim the black ball or blacked end after use. Trim at least ¼ of wooden wick ends. Trimming will ensure that the candle does not burn hotter than it should and also prolong the life of the candle. Do not trim the wick too short or it may not relight.
Our beautiful jars can be repurposed and used around the house for plants, cotton balls, makeup brushes, pens, and more. Get creative and keep enjoying your candle for years to come.
