Surprise candles are just that — a surprise. They’re usually 1.5-ounce soy candles in reclaimed shot glasses, and they usually feature zinc wicks.
So where do surprise candles come from?
When we’re pouring big candles, we almost always have leftover wax in to-die-for fragrances. Since it’s our mission to make the most of what we have, we pour a layer of that wax into any of several reclaimed shot glasses. In most cases, the glasses are already painted and decorated; what’s at the bottom of your candle is as much of a surprise to us as it is to you. Each candle is painted and decorated differently, so you’ll be the only person in the world with that particular candle. Pretty special, huh?
Once in a while, we’ll put a surprise candle into an order as a token of our appreciation. Sometimes we run promotions where every order gets a free surprise candle (like between now and February 7, 2014), no matter how much or how little we’re sending you.
Why do we bother with surprise candles instead of waiting until we need that wax again? Because we want you to experience all of our fragrances and colors. Besides, it’s always fun to have something you didn’t expect.
Our surprise candles are always made out of 100% pure, sustainable and responsibly sourced soy wax.
