Use and care
Trim the wick to about 1/4 inch if necessary before each burn, and particularly for the first burn, let the candle burn until the wax pools across the whole candle (about 4 hours) to prevent tunneling, which can result in wasted wax. While it's not necessary every time you burn the candle, we recommend a full burn like this periodically as you use the candle.
Avoid burning in excess of 4 hours at a time, because this can result in the wick mushrooming and buildup of soot.
Made from recycled glass jars, USA grown sustainably sourced soy wax, 100% cotton wicks, and dust covers made of wildflower seed paper. Each candle is uniquely scented with phthalate-free fragrance oils and contains small crystals - specific crystals and scents are listed in the "types" tab.
Each candle is vegan, and free from lead, zinc, phthalates, alcohol, and GMOs.
Each candle is poured in a recycled glass jar with a paper label and a dust cover made of wildflower seed paper which can be planted to help bees!
Hand poured by in Seattle, WA by Kara, the maker of Kundalini Candles. Kundalini is a small, local, woman-owned business. These candles are poured in small batches. Her deep rooted love for the Pacific Northwest, specifically Seattle, has been a big influence in the formation of her brand.
End of life
Follow the use and care instructions tab for our best advice to avoid an uneven burn or "tunneling" which can result in wasted wax.
If your candle does burn unevenly, we recommend melting it down (try pouring boiling water in the jar - the wax will melt and rise to the top, creating a wax pellet that you can reuse once it cools) and repouring it with a new wick.
You can remove the crystals after using the candle and reuse them for any purpose you wish. If they have wax residue, you can pour boiling water on them, which will melt off the wax which will rise to the top. Remove once cooled and reuse wax pellets for pouring new candles.
Reuse the recycled glass jar to repour another candle, or use it as a glass. It can also be donated for reuse, or recycled.
