Remember the time you went on a trip to the hills with your friends? When you sat down by a campfire and sang happy songs while eating toasty marshmallows?
We thought of preserving the same feeling in the form of a fragrance, and that's why we created the Campfire candle. This candle combines a series of unusual scents you wouldn’t think go so well together, such as guaiac wood, vanilla, and wild sumac – fragrances that refresh the fond memories of your favorite camping trip.
As the candle burns slowly, you will sense the wild aroma of twigs, leaves, and logs burning, with a blend of sweetness.Not sure which candle you like? Take our scent quiz.

Candle CareTrim your wick to 0.25”
Trimming your wick is important for so many reasons - the most important being that your candle will burn properly.
You can trim your S&O candle using a wick trimmer, scissors or nail cutter. We recommend trimming to 3/16th of an inch (0.25”). Wood wicks perform best when they are closer to the wax.
Re-trim your wick before every use, not just the first time you light your candle. Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris.Burn for at least 2 hours
When you light your candle for the first time, be sure to let it burn for 2 - 4 hours, or until the wax has melted to the edge of the jar (full melt pool). If you do not do this, your candle will tunnel. Tunnelling means that the wick is burning straight down the centre of the candle without creating a full melt pool within 2 - 4 hours of being lit.
If a full melt pool has not occurred after 4 hours, don't worry. Extinguish the candle, allow it to cool and try again. Wood wick candles need a lot of tending to, for an enjoyable experience.
You can also use a spoon or chopstick to scoop unmelted wax into the wax pool.
The more you burn your candle, the more the wax melts. A full melt pool would have been achieved when you’ve burned your candle half way through.Pay attention to your candle
Never ever leave your candle unattended, especially if you have pets or kids
Never burn your candle close to anything that is flammable
Never use a candle as a night light
Never extinguish candles with water
Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room
Safety instructions are on the bottom of your S&O candle. Please read and follow them carefully
Once 1/2” of the wax is left, don’t burn any longer. This prevents the candle from overheating and damaging the surface below it. Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes or the flame becomes too high.
Our candles are quite the sensory experience and we understand if you just can't get enough. However, there's only so much wax to burn. Our wick clips keep the flame at safety height above the bottom of the candle jar. This is in place to reduce the risk of overheating at the end of the candles life.Reuse or return your candle jar
When you are done burning your candle, remove the remaining wax and wash your jar with soap and warm water. Voila! You now have a new mini terrarium, makeup brush holder, propagation jar or whiskey glass. Whatever your preferences, you can reuse the jar to your hearts content.
Can’t find any use for it? No worries, email us at email@example.com for instructions on how to send us the empty jar intact and you would get 10% off your next order.

I’ve purchased a few times and I keep coming back for more. I love the wood wick (sounds like a tiny bonfire) and the scents are so beautiful and not too overpowering. My fiance is sensitive to fragrance and has not complained at all! I love that I can repurpose or return the jars, I haven't done so yet but I plan to when I order my next batch. My favourite candles. 10/10 would recommend for quality, fragrant options, and aesthetics.
Thank you so much for your review, Karen!
Not only does this candle bring the scent of a cozy campfire into my home, it brings the crackle and glow too. That 7th&O is a eco-friendly, Black owned business is just the icing on the cake. Oh, and love the new sleek lable design! I bought a bunch of these candles to give out as xmas gifts… the problem is I’m having a tough time not keeping them for myself!
Thank you so much for your review, Krystle! Don't worry, we won't judge if you keep them all to yourself!
