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.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
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.

How are you implementing sustainability in your business?
Responsibly sourcing production materials
Our passion for sustainable living drives us to make responsible choices. We ethically source our soy waxes from local manufacturers, our wooden wicks are FSC certified and we use fragrances and essential oils that are pthalate-free.
Our Reuse or Return program
We give our customers an incentive to send back their finished candles so we can reuse them. Since we launched in May 2020, we've received around 50 jars and recycled those into new candles.
Read more about this initiative here.
Product transparency and packaging
The three core ingredients of our candles are soy wax, wood wicks, and oils. We are committed to ingredient transparency because we want you to trust that we will not use any materials that are harmful to either you or the Earth.
How fragrant are your wooden wick candles?
We use all-natural plant-based fragrance and/or essential oils and coconut soy wax in our candles. This combination produces a candle with a lighter scent throw that grows and lingers, which our customers love.
Why do you make your candles with wooden wicks?
Wood wicks burn much cleaner, have 30% more scent throw and while they don’t get the carbon build-up that needs to be trimmed off of cotton wicks, they will develop a slight amount of ash at the tip of the wick. The ash can be easily broken off when cool before relighting or cut using a wick trimmer or nail cutter.
Plus, that crackling sound they make is a welcome bonus!

Could not be happier!
This candle is divine. It smells amazing, it burns strong and I'm absolutely in love. Will definitely be ordering more.
I absolutely love this candle, I can honestly say it is not only one of my favorite scents and i want it in perfume and bath form so I can just bathe in it, haha, but just my favorite candle of all time. I am a huge sucker for scented candles and I honestly have taken my time burning this one to savor it. Also I had never tried wood wick before and now I honestly can say I dont want to go back to regular wicks ever again. If you're looking for a scent that really makes you feel relaxed and like youre in a spa setting, I burn it when I go to start my work outs and it really makes the experience that much better with the candle. 100/10.
I purchased this candle for my sister and she absolutely loves it. The scent is beautiful and the candle itself is gorgeous!! Looks great with her decor!
Grounded in grace
This candle is very well balanced—let’s get real, all of her scents are! The smell isn’t overpowering but fills the room with peace + ease. If it was a day of the week It would be Sunday as it reminds me of coming home from a hike in the sunshine and having a slow, intentional afternoon. It is grounded but not sleepy; it’s awareness but not stimulating. This is a staple of mine along with asana and namaste. Also extremely obsessed with New Orleans! If you’re on the fence…it’s time to leap!
I love these candles - the scents are layered and unique, the branding is on point and the natural soy formula burns clean. I love that you can send back your empties. This is a local, female founded company I am happy to support!
Serenity is my go-to after a long day!
Serenity fills your space with a great smell that puts you in a relaxed state. After a long day, I ALWAYS look forward to a shower, a glass of wine, and the scent of Serenity filling up my room. Thank me later :)
Thank you for your feedback, Tunde!
Burns good and smells delicious
Thank you for your feedback, Kaylita!
I have never loved a candle so much.
I plan to stock a closet with Asana candles so I never run out.
Thank you so much for your feedback, Amelia!
A beautiful, balanced candle!
Such an amazing scent! Super warm and inviting, and the candle fills any room completely without being overpowering. Will definitely be purchasing again :)
Thank you for your feedback, Natalie!
The vibe queen
I saw this brand and was sold immediately because I loveeee candles and I'm a sucker for good branding. I noticed they only ship within North America but I contacted the owner (who is oh so lovely!) to see if i could get some sent to Nigeria. A bunch of my friends and I placed an order and sorted out shipping ourselves with some help from the owner. I got 4 different scents in total. Serenity is absolutely one of my faves! I've lit it up mostly on my self care days and boy does it give me a boost! Serenity is literally serene. Its like my little positive vibes queen and I can't wait to get my hands on more.
Thank you, Kim - and happy our candles made it safe :)
Relaxing and Soothing
Finally burned this candle, I had the last bit of a different one to finish first, and oh my glob! I love this candle! First off it's so soothing of a smell, really lives up to its name. You feel like you're in one of those fancy spas, definitely can feel yourself relaxing. It's fresh, light and the sandalwood adds that something extra. Definitely a great bedroom, office or bathroom candle! I HIGHLY recommend this candle, and I am definitely going to purchase one of the other scents again! Plus the customer service is amazing, the return program is bomb and the owner is a darling person. Definitely pick this up!
Ming, you're too kind. Thanks so much for your feedback!
