PINE. CLOVE. CINNAMON. WOODSY. NOTE: Clear bottle, NOT green. Inspired by the song "Hazy Shade of Winter" by The Bangles, this candle features an a happy, holiday scent with warm balsam pine combined with spicy hints of cinnamon and clove and an undertone of musky sandalwood and cedarwood. Made with 100% all-natural soy wax, blended with the maximum ratio of fully-concentrated natural organic fragrance oil (almost double the recommended amount), and crafted in small batches, these are fabulous-smelling, clean-burning, long-lasting candles.
Comes in an upcycled wine bottle and burns up to 120 hours. Note: Due to a shortage of green glass, candles have clear glass instead.
100% all-natural soy wax
Sustainable hemp wicks
Hand-poured in small batches
Made in the USA
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF Size: 12oz: approx. 3″ x 3″ x 5″
How to use: Each time before lighting, trim the wick to 1/4 inch. This ensures that the flame doesn’t grow too tall, get too hot, and evaporate the scented wax more quickly. (Doing this extends the life of your candle.)
Care: Keep a wick trimmer handy to easily cut and discard wicks before each burn. Allow the top of the candle wax to pool or liquify entirely with each burn to maintain a level candle top and avoid tunneling. To maximize the overall life of the candle, do not burn longer than 4 hours at a time. Up to 20 hours of total burn time.
MATERIALS Upcycled 12 oz. glass containers crafted in-house from wine bottles using a 4-step cold-working process to repurpose them into usable containers.
PACKAGING None or recyclable cardboard box.
SOURCE Hand crafted in the USA.
ABOUT THE COMPANY Lit Up Candle Co. was founded by Stacey and PJ, two beer and music lovers with a candle-making problem on a mission to promote sustainability.
From Lit Up: "As a DIYer-at-heart, Stacey began making candles in college. Shortly after Stacey and PJ started dating 15 years later, PJ showed interest in learning one of her hobbies by surprising her with a much better bottle cutter than the used one from eBay with 1960's packaging that she'd been using. They immediately got to work: it took over a month to create 80 candles for their first event, a local beer festival, where they were pleasantly surprised by the customer response.
What started as a couple’s shared hobby and side gig quickly grew into something more. Lit Up LLC was officially established in 2015. They upgraded from a bottle cutter and belt sander to a wet tile saw and flat lap wheel, and continued making investments in equipment and honing their craft as they grew. In 2017 they took the leap: Stacey and PJ stepped away from their day jobs and into the business full-time.
We pour a lot of love and intention into our handcrafted, sustainable products so you can enjoy high-quality home fragrance that's eco-friendly, sustainable, long-lasting, and fills your space."
