Lavender simplicity is what this candle is all about. A heavy ceramic container, exclusive to Rachel Robyn, is filled with Soy and Coconut wax, and blended with pure distilled Lavender oil. That's it - simple.
You get all the benefits of lavender oils, the smells, the relaxation - and none of the bad stuff. No toxins, nothing to give you headaches or make you sick.. it's all good.
Made by hand, by us in our own candle studio in Brooklyn, we kept it simple and natural for you.
What's in our Candles
Our candle wax is a blend of clean US grown soywax and organic coconut oil. It has a natural off-white color, low melting point, it smooth to the touch, not actually hard and "waxy". When heated, it melts easily, and the wax can be used for skincare. It's great for aromatherapy or massage - use with caution.
Our essential oils are distilled by family farmers from all over the world, and brought together in Brooklyn. This candle is only lavender, mixed to bring out the best of this beloved flower.
The wicks are natural cotton, and supported by a small metal base. When trimmed properly, they produce no soot.
The heavy ceramic container is about 4 inches tall x 3.5 inches across.
What's NOT in Our Candles
Our candle contains NO paraffin wax, phthalates, metals, or "fragrances".
Paraffin, a commonly used commercial candle wax derived from oil. Burning paraffin candles emit all kinds of volatile organic compounds, such as benzine and toluene. Paraffin is cheap, inorganic, and has been linked to poor health and cancer. Our wax is naturally grown and produced.
Phthalates are a class of chemical "plasticizers" that are used in mass-market shampoos and cheap candles, used to give an artificial shine to the wax.They are hidden under the "fragrance" label. Our wax has no harmful synthetic additives.
Fragrance is a catch-all term that manufacturers use to hide synthetic chemicals, Allergies, headaches, and other problems may come from unknown ingredients under the word "fragrance".
Metals: Lead, tin or zinc metal are used in mass-market candle wicks. Our wicks are 100% natural cotton or wood, and never contain harmful metals.
How does our candle perform?
Aromatherapy candles are meant to have a light scent. We load our candles with 8-11% essential oils. This gives our candles the scent performance of synthetic candles, but yes, it costs a bit more. This means the scent, while mild, can fill up a room.
Noses vary, and so will your scent perception. Also, room air-flow is a factor. If the room has constantly moving air, if a window is opened, the scent will not fill up as strongly if the windows are closed. We have found that our natural wax blend, together with cool-temp hand pouring, and adequate candle curing time, can result in great scent performance.
The first burn of your candle should be around 2 hours. This will allow a pool of wax to be melted on the top of the candle. After you see a pool of wax across the top, blow out the candle and let the wax cool off. Then use your candle as normal, but don't burn longer than 4 hours per use.
Remember to trim the wick to about 1/4 in above the wax line. The 10oz candle can burn 30-40 hours. Extinguish the flame by using a candle snuffer, or gently blow the flame out. Do not use the top to extinguish the candle flame.
