Frequently Asked Questions

How are you implementing sustainability in your business?

Glad you asked. Here's what we're doing to support our eco-friendly ethos as a company.

Why should I buy your wood wick candles?

Seventh & Oak candles are hand-poured, and crafted with the best ingredients. They're made with the utmost attention, care and a truckload of love.

All the ingredients in our candles are natural and safe. Our candles aren't just decorative items, however; they also serve a purpose. Some can help you relax or make your romantic evening more memorable; others can remind you of an important moment in your life or with a loved one.

Lastly, you don’t have to worry about what you're bringing into your home because our product line is free of harmful materials and chemicals.

How are your wood wick candles made?

With coconut soy wax, phthalate free oils, untreated wood wick and glass vessel.

How are your room sprays made?

We use an organic witch hazel base and gluten-free alcohol derived from corn. Our oils are sourced responsibly from ethical manufacturers in North America.

How fragrant are your products?

We use all-natural plant-based fragrance and essential oils. This combination produces a candle with a scent throw that grows and lingers, does not overwhelm you/nose or give you headaches. Even "scent-sitive" people enjoy our candles.

Why do you make your candles with wood wicks instead of the standard cotton wicks??

Wood wicks burn much cleaner and have 30% more scent throw than traditional cotton wicks. While they don’t get the carbon build-up that needs to be trimmed off cotton wicks, they will develop a slight amount of ash at the tip. This ash can easily be broken off when the wick is cool before relighting or cut off using a wick trimmer or nail cutter.

Plus, that crackling sound they make is a welcome bonus! 

How long do your candles burn for?

9 oz: 55 hours.

2 oz: 6-8 hours.

How long do your room and linen sprays last?

Room Spray lingers for 1-2 days in the air. On linens, the scent can linger for a couple of weeks.

Does Seventh & Oak ship internationally?
