When you purchase this listing, we will send you 2 ounces of rescued candle wax melted into tart-shaped melts. These are 100% reuse, made using old candles sourced from emptied estates and other otherwise-trash bound supply chains.

In the grand scheme of things, the energy that goes into sourcing and manufacturing materials into paraffin (a fossil fuel byproduct) involves much higher emissions impacts and health risks than simply burning the stuff once it's here, so if you’re watching health and climate implications and you find comfort and calm in candlelight, choosing to make candles using the most sustainable wax possible (the stuff that already exists) is a less problematic choice than any number of day-to-day decisions (hopping in one's car, for example) about which you might not otherwise think twice.

    • 100% secondhand packaging

    • intentionally slow in-house service levels

    • ground shipping only

    This is climate-competent commerce, and we talk a bit more about each of these strategies on our 'official' shipping policy page:

    The Fine Print 
  • Proactive Satisfaction + Refunds

    We have adopted a 'generally generous' approach to fulfilling many of our product listings, as sending a wee bit extra can avoid costly errors & 'fix it' shipments (besides, we find most folks appreciate the occasional freebie).


    That said, if you would prefer to avoid the extras, we will gladly rightsize or downsize your order on request (product price would remain the same because more labor + less product = wash). If you prefer this option, please include a detailed order note to specify the quantity you wish to recieve (i.e. 'please send precise count of 7 for XYZ product').


    As a rule, we discourage returns - but we also don't abide crappy customer experiences. To initiate issue resolution in the event that we miss the boat with your order (gaps happen!), head to our refund policy page (linked here - and at the bottom of any page) to get started.
