FAQ'S

 

OH NO! MY ITEM GOT DAMAGED IN SHIPPING OR I NEVER RECEIVED MY ITEM! WHAT DO I DO?

Let me know as soon as you can! 

I would appreciate a photo if an item is damaged.

If an item just never shows up, my first step will be to make sure I have your address entered correctly. 

And we'll take it from there. 

It's disappointing when things don't go as planned but hopefully we can find a satisfying solution together.

WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT OPTIONS?

PayPal and Venmo only for now.

I can send my Venmo QR upon request. Just message me. 

WHAT IS YOUR RETURN POLICY?

Unfortunately due to the nature of soy candles and wax melts, I don't accept returns. If you have an issue with your purchase contact me and we can work together to make things right for you.

WHY DOES THE WAX HAVE FROSTING/LOOK LUMPY AFTER BURNING/

Ah, the nature of soy wax. I chose to work with soy after a lot of research. Soy burns cleaner without the toxins found in other waxes. Even rough, frosty candles are safe. It's a cosmetic issue rather than a safety or performance issue.

WHY DO I NEED TO TRIM THE WICK?

Before lighting please trim candle wicks to 1/4 inch to help the candle burn more efficiently and to reduce carbon buildup. This is cleaner for your home.
I only use lead-free cotton wicks which tend to be self-trimming, but go ahead and snip off any excess wick (leaving a good 1/4 inch at least) before each re-light to keep your candle burning bright and your carbon footprint low.

WHAT'S WITH THE SCRATCHING POST (LIMITED EDITION) ITEMS?

I like experimenting and having fun.

Sometimes it's not feasible to continue a product for a variety of reasons.

Sometimes the supplies are not consistently available or the process to make the candle or wax melt is too intensive...and sometimes I would have to charge too much to make it feasible. (That's no fun for anybody.) 

Otherwise, if these little experiments can raise even a tiny bit of money for a good cause, why not? 

ARE THESE CANDLES/MELTS SAFE FOR MY KIDS AND/OR PETS?

I obsessively researched waxes and scent options before making my first candles and melts as I have two cat companions at home. 

I specifically chose scents from Candle Science's CleanScents line which are not subject to Prop-65 and are Phthalate Free. 

I also had a focus group of pet owners and parents to test for headache or asthma responses. 

All turned out well even for my sensitive human, canine and feline friends. 

I also use only cotton wicks with lead free cores to reduce environmental impact in your home or office. 

And I do my best to use recyclable containers, packaging and packing materials. 

WHEN AND HOW DO YOU SHIP OUT PRODUCTS?

I use USPS Priority Mail and for the foreseeable future, I will only ship out products on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays to make sure they get to you before the weekend. 

Candles and Wax Melts can melt or freeze if left outside over a weekend depending on the time of year.  

For folks local to Raleigh NC, I do offer a Porch Pick Up option. If you choose this option, message me and we can arrange a time and date at your convenience. 


DO YOU EVER MAKE UNSCENTED CANDLES FOR THOSE WITH SENSITIVITY TO SCENT/FRAGRANCE?

Yes, I have and will be happy to make an unscented or a lightly scented candle upon request. Just message me. 

I do offer a reduced price for unscented candles. 

Let me know what you need and I’ll do my best to assist you.

MEOW!

Feel free to reach out if you have questions or concerns.
