get your burning questions answered about waxy b.
We use only 100% pure soy wax made from soybeans grown in the midwest US!
Soy wax is clean. It is safe to breathe in, because doesn’t include things like petroleum that is in a lot of other candles! Soy produces less soot than paraffin wax and is water soluble, so it’s a cinch to clean up! It also cost quite a bit less than beeswax, which helps keep the cost of our candles down!
We use high quality phthalate free fragrance AND essential oils. Using only essential oils is WAY more costly and hard to achieve a good, strong smelling candle. We would LOVE to use all pure essential oils someday and we do occasionally create lines where the candles are made that way.
We use only cotton and/or paper wicks - all lead free. Legally all wicks have to be lead free as of 2003 but wicks used to contain lead!
Our store hours are M-F: 10-6 and Sat: 10-4
Our flagship store is located in the Haymarket in Lincoln, NE- UNDER the O street bridge.
The X on our candles is a little spin from the beautiful aesthetics of the European apothecary stores.
We do that for your safety! If the candle burned all the way to the bottom, it would become too hot for the surface and we don’t want that! We use specific wicks that allow a little room at the bottom to keep you and your family safe!
Throw it on a candle warmer or reuse the vessel! You can get the remainder of the wax out by boiling a small amount of water in a pot and setting the candle in it for a few minutes. The wax should pop right out and then you can clean the jar as normal!
*only put the glass in the water for a few minutes and be careful when handling the vessel! It will be hot!
