Frequently Asked Questions
* Our candles are hand poured in small batches. This means that a small processing time applies to orders before they ship. We do often carry some candles on a ready to ship basis, so be aware there's a chance we'll dispatch sooner than stated. Processing time is currently: 1-2 Business Days. Processing time has no bearing on shipping times, and is always in addition to shipping time. RUSH orders will be accepted on an individual basis. Please contact us if you are in a rush and we will let you know if we are able to process your order ahead of others, for a small fee depending on order size. Our processing time is updated regularly and we always aim to ship sooner where possible.
The term "Hand-poured" literally means, we hand-pour the molten wax into each individual candle container we sell. Essentially, it serves to show how each candle we create is made by hand - as far as the process will allow. The candle you buy will be carefully made, poured and labeled by hand as opposed to being the product of someone "flicking a switch" in a factory. If mass-produced ain't your thing, then hand-poured is the way to go!

Orders with gift notes will ship without packing slips or invoices - we recommend adding your name at the end of the gift note so the recipient knows who it's from!
