What makes your refillable candles eco-friendly and non-toxic?

Our candles are eco-friendly and non-toxic for several reasons. Firstly, we use 100% natural and biodegradable soy wax. This means that our candles are free from harmful chemicals and pollutants that can be found in traditional paraffin wax candles.

In addition to our natural wax, we use lead and zinc free cotton wicks that are free from heavy metals and other harmful substances. This ensures that our candles burn cleanly and don't release harmful toxins into the air.

We also use high-quality fragrances that are free from phthalates and other synthetic chemicals. This means that our candles are safe for you and your family to breathe in, and won't contribute to indoor air pollution.

Finally, our packaging is also eco-friendly. We use recycled and biodegradable materials wherever possible, and we encourage our customers to continue reusing our candle jars.

Overall, our commitment to using natural and sustainable materials, combined with our focus on creating non-toxic products, makes our candles a safe and eco-friendly choice for anyone looking to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in their home.

What's the best way to burn my refillable candle?

On your first light, burn your ReCandle for at least 3-4 hours. This will allow the wax to melt across the top and fill in the nooks and crannies of your candle jar. Continue burning your candle for 3-4 hours at a time until you're left with 1/4" of wax—at this point, you're ready to let the wax cool, remove, and refill!

I've finished my first refillable candle! How do I get it out of the jar?

This is the moment we've been waiting for—otherwise, this would just be a case of another single use candle!

First, make sure the wax is fully cooled, and take a look inside your jar. If you see some remaining wax on the sides of your jar, gently press down on the wax and slide up and to the sides. These pieces should break off easily. From there, turn your jar upside down and tap on the bottom of the jar until the wax pops out!

On the off-chance the wax isn't popping out easily and you've confirmed the wax has fully cooled, you can very carefully take a utensil and pry off the wax. This should cause it to crack and easily be removed.

If there's a small amount of wax residue left on the inside of the jar, that's okay! As long as your new candle refill fits inside, that's all you need.

How do I modify my reusable candle subscription?

It’s easy! You can pause your refillable candle subscription, adjust your frequency, or cancel at any time on your Account Page. Once logged in, click on "Manage my subscriptions", click into your subscription, and either pause, reschedule, or cancel.

Are new refillable candle scents coming soon?

Yes! We are actively working on developing new scents for our candle refills. These will be available for new customers to choose when purchasing the reusable candle starter kit. For existing subscribers, you'll have the option to update your subscription with the new scent you'd like to try that month!
