Does Natural Sloth use preservatives or artificial fragrances?

We do not use any fillers, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, or parabens.

Do your candles melt during summer shipping?

Our candles or wax melts do not melt during the summer shipping because we use a high percentage of beeswax and a small amount of coconut oil.

Candle Care

First Burn 

Give your candle enough burning time to develop a melted wax pool that goes all the way to the edge of the container on the first use - this can take up to three hours.

Tunneling

If your candle stays lit, give it a good long burn until all the wax is melted to the edge of the jar, and you've effectively "reset" the memory of the wax. If your candle doesn't stay lit because it is "drowning" in a wax pool, try using a paper towel or napkin to soak up some of the excess wax.

If the wick won't stay lit

If the wick doesn't stay lit or light up is probably because the wick needs to be trimmed and clean of charred material. You can use a napkin and your fingers to gently break off the burnt parts of the wick and remove a little of the wax from around the wick.

Taper Candles Burning Tips

Place the candle in a secure holder. The candle is made to burn down into itself consuming all of the wax when burned properly. Keep candles away from open windows, fans, or airflow of any kind. Place your hand behind the flame when blowing out. 

The approximate burn time is one hour per inch.

Why do we use Wooden Wicks?

Wooden Wick burns wider and slower than a standard wick. They are eco-friendly, and the wood is sourced from Forest Stewardship Council certified mills and manufactured in the USA. They flicker and crackle while they burn, so wooden wicks help create a feeling of a mini campfire right in your home. The wick will give off a scent of its own. It’s a light, wood-burning scent. We also love the shape of this flame compared to the standard wick, and for every $100 spent, our supplier plant a tree with Trees for the Future, an organization working to end hunger and poverty. 

Essential Oils

We use only pure essential oils to make our products because they are natural and highly concentrated, steam-distilled, or cold-pressed extracts of almost any part of a plant, such as seeds, flowers, fruit, leaves, stems, and roots. Our essential oils are a mix of organic, wildcrafted, and food-grade essential oils. They do not contain any fillers or artificial ingredients, and they have an aromatic scent that eases stress and boosts mood without any chemicals.

Why Beeswax?

Beeswax candles are some of the oldest candles in history. Our candles are made with pure yellow beeswax from a small family bee farm. We support a small beekeeper, and it makes us feel good knowing exactly where the beeswax comes from. Beeswax is 100% bee-made, therefore 100% natural. The only candle that emits negative ions to purify, cleanse, and improve air quality. Environmentally friendly, safe, and non-toxic. Have a high melting point that is the highest among all known waxes, resulting in significantly longer burn time. They are excellent for people with environmental allergies, sensitivities, and asthma. ​
