A good bookstore is a magical place, and this is the best one you’ve ever seen. Leather volumes line the walls, piles of paperbacks teeter precariously on every flat surface, eager anticipation fills the air. You wander the stacks like a kid in a candy shop, sneaking little tastes here and there - you dip into a volume of poetry, then a book of ancient myths, then a biography of someone fascinating and scandalous. What’s that you smell all around you? Paper and ink, certainly, but there’s something else in the air too - the rich perfume of history.

Note: You may see our candle with a wood lid in some product photos. Beginning in late-2020, we stopped including a wood lid. This is part of our goal to offer a more sustainable product.
We make our all natural soy candles and wax melts with the environment in mind. Firstly, we have chosen 100% soy wax blends made from soy beans grown in the United States. We also use a cotton, lead-free wick and do not include dyes in our products. Most importantly, we create custom scent blends, using fragrances without phthalates, carcinogens, mutagens, and other harmful toxins. Our goal is to provide a healthy, clean-burning candle and choosing sustainable materials and production methods help us ensure we do so. We strongly encourage you to reuse, recycle, or repurpose your containers and packaging. Our glass is screen-printed and dishwasher safe. Use soap and warm water to completely wash your finished candle and re-purpose it as a drinking glass or many other things.
CANDLE AND MELT CARE
Candles can last 5-7 hours per ounce. Be sure to allow soy candles to burn all the way across to the edge of the container the first time you burn it before putting it out. This ensures that your soy candle does not “tunnel” as it burns. Burn your candle one hour for every inch wide. Keeping your wick trimmed to about 1/4 inch. to avoid large wicks causing smoking, causing soot, and burning too hot. We recommend that you only burn your candle each time long enough to get a good melt pool. The melted wax will continue to add fragrance to the air. // Place the soy wax melt in the top of a wax warmer - do not add water. Depending on the size of your warmer, you may want to place 1-2 pieces and then as 1-2 more as the scent weakens. Reseal melt packaging to retain the fragrance of the remaining melts.
