Burning & Care
Allow the candle to melt to the edges on your first burn. For the best burning experience, trim candle wick before each use. This will allow for a more even burn and a slower burn time.

Why hemp is better
Hemp fabric is perfect for bedding. It's naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, moisture wicking and thermoregulating. Not to mention hemp is eco-friendly, sustainable, and biodegradable. What else could you ask for?
Hemp wax is superior to traditional soy waxes. It's toxin, paraben and phthalate free, vegan, and comes from renewable resources. Hemp wax also provides an even, slow burn with excellent hot and cold throw, is skin-safe (clinically tested and dermatologist reviewed), and FDA approved.
The power of hemp
Our hemp is planted in rural, isolated areas on barren ground without using pesticides, insecticides, fertilizers, and hardly any water.
When hemp is cultivated its roots detoxify, enrich and restore the soil through bio-accumulation and phytoremediation. In other words, hemp’s roots draw out heavy metals and toxins, absorb carbon dioxide, and return significant amounts of nutrients. This prevents soil pollution and keeps our land healthier for longer periods of time. In fact, hemp was even planted at Chernobyl with hopes to remedy the polluted soil and water.
On the other hand, cotton and many other crops extract water and nutrients without replenishment, which harms, pollutes and deteriorates the soil.
