We offer returns on any candle that has not been burned. If for some reason you do not want a product once it has shown up please email me for a return label. Unfortunately, we do not allow returns for candles that have been burned or used to test the scent.


We offer local shipping costs determined by Canada Post.


Before lighting up your candle, trim the wick to 1/4. This will prevent your candle from burning too quickly while keeping the scent throw to the best quality possible.
