Birthdate Candles

Product

What are Birthdate Candles made from?

Birthdate Candles are poured with an all-natural blend of soy, coconut, and apricot wax and custom natural fragrance oils. The vessel is a reusable and recyclable premium glass jar with a 100% cotton wick.

 

Where are Birthdate Candles made?

The candles are all hand-poured with love in small batches in the Northeast USA.

 

How did you develop the scents?

We worked hand-in-hand with master perfumers to craft bespoke fragrances based on the personality traits identified in the astrological readings. The personalized scents are woodsy, mystical, and floral — they are custom-made to calm and soothe the spirit of the recipient.

     

    How long will my candle last?

    Each candle burns for 60-80 hours, providing a long, beautiful, and clean burn.

     

    Can the glass be recycled or reused?

    Absolutely. Because of the personalized custom label, you wouldn’t want to wash the outside of the glass. That said, each glass makes a great pen cup, make-up brush holder, a stash for crystals or tarot cards...the possibilities are endless.

    What size are the candles?

    The candles contain 13.5 ounces of wax, which provides a long, beautiful burn of 60-80 hours. They’re about 5.5’’ tall and 3’’ wide, making a perfect-sized centerpiece for your desk, bookshelf, side table, etc.
