So what if you can't be on a vacation all year round? Let the beaches come to your living room.
Our Bahamas Candle comes packed with a refreshing fruity scent that inevitably reminds you of the beautiful, serene beachside. The presence of pineapple and kiwi oils, with undertones of lemon, guava, and sweet melon, create a breezy, summery vibe in your home.
When you're stuck with work but craving a beach holiday, light up this clean burning candle, and allow your mind to wander off to the tropical lands of the Bahamas. A great addition to your self-care regimen, this candle can also be a great gift option for birthdays, housewarming, or Christmas.

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.
Stop burning after 4 hours or when your candle has achieved a full melt pool
Once your candle has burned for 4 hours, extinguish it. Do not burn longer than this time to maximize the full benefit of your S&O candle and to keep the glass jar from getting too hot. Relight it once the candle has cooled.
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
Stop burning when there’s only 1/2” of wax left
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions on how to send us the empty jar intact and you would get 10% off your next order.

I got this as a gift for a friend and I’ve heard nothing but good things! I’ll be getting more candles!
S&O scent blends are amazing!!!
I’ve fallen in love with another candle from Seventh & Oak’s collection. My first love was New Orleans. And man that candle’s bourbon & honey scent is everything. Bahamas brings a fresh scent of pineapple and kiwi I’ve never smelt before. Just the right amount of fruity goodness without being overwhelming. I just need to get my hands on Bora Bora next :)
Thank you for your feedback, Roxanne!
How to Start Summer 2021
This is my second time buying from the Travel Collection, but the first of buying the Bahamas Candle. With the swish of a match, the unique scent takes me on a tropical experience like no other! What I love most about this and all Seventh and Oak’s products is that all the candles are clean burning and I don’t have to worry about what I’m bringing into my home. While travelling this summer may not be on my radar yet, this candle is all I need to begin this new season! Thank you Seventh and Oak!
Thank you for your feedback, Maria!

I'm a type of person that lights a candle to suit my mood, which often is dictated by our weather. Finding scents to suit the a typical Toronto spring weather can be challenging—we've got snow, we've got rain for days, and eventually blue skies and sunshine! Picking the Trio Set of 3 is the way to go because you can pick from ALL their collections! For this order we selected our favourite Hallow's Eve, and 2 new scents to try (different than the woodsy scents I go for): Serenity, and Cebu—both are so soothing, highly recommend these scents too! And as always, fast shipping, packaged together with care and a cute hand written note!
I love the scent of the Bora Bora candle-Tangerine and Peach!
It just reminds me of summer, so fresh,fruity and delicious smelling.
It is not overwhelming either, just the right amount of scent! Love it!
