FAQ

What type of wax is used?

A custom blend of coconut wax and beeswax is used.
Coconut wax is the most sustainable wax available (compared to soy which is a GMO crop that uses heavy pesticides and fertilizer additives) but coconut is a very soft wax. A small amount of beeswax is added to help harden the wax blend.

 

What type of fragrances are used?

Only 100% phthalate-free fragrances are used.
No coloring or dyes are added. 

 

Where are these made?

Each batch is hand poured with care in Greendale, WI.
Over 90% of the wax and fragrance oil ingredients are purchased from small, family-owned businesses in the Midwest.

 

How are wax melts used?

Use 1 wax melt shape for a small room (bathroom) or 2 wax melt shapes for a medium/large sized room.

Coconut wax loves the heat! More fragrance will be released in a hot tea light warmer. Electric wax warmers may also be used but use one that is 25W or higher so that the wax is heated high enough to properly release the fragrance. 

When the scent can no longer be smelled, (extinguish the tealight) then carefully use cotton balls to soak up the wax and discard in the trash.

What is the shipping policy and do you deliver locally?

Standard shipping rates apply. In hot summer months, products are shipped Monday-Wednesday to avoid having wax melts sit in an overheated mail truck over the weekend. 
Local delivery in the Milwaukee area is possible. Please inquire if you are interested in local delivery. 
See the shipping policy noted at the bottom of the webpage for more details.
