"every scent has a story"
hand poured. small batch. natural soy wax candles with uniquely inspired scents.
Candle making is a craft. Candle making is a science. Candle making is an art. LARRABEE is what happens when craft, science & art come together to create handmade artisanal soy wax candles.
A LARRABEE candle is made by hand, not machine, from beginning to end. The result is a high quality candle made with care and intention.
It starts with a story
Every scent has a story... a sensory memory or experience from my life that inspired me to create the scent. That personal connection continues as I hand pour each candle. Thanks to this hands-on process I can keep a watchful eye on quality, while also producing a uniqueness to each small batch.
No dyes or additives
The ingredients are minimal on purpose. I wanted to avoid dyes and other additives that most big candle companies use. I use natural soy wax instead of paraffin with natural paper wicks. I create the scents using top shelf fragrance oils that have been developed to burn clean and maintain a strong fragrance throw for the entire candle burn.
The first time you light a LARRABEE candle, you want to make sure that you let it burn until the melted wax pool extends to the edges of the container. Ending that first burn prematurely will produce tunneling in soy wax, which will prevent the candle burning evenly in the future. Burn for 2-3 hours, but no more than 4 hours for one continuous burn.
To ensure an even burn every time, keep your wick trimmed to about 1/4 inch & remove any soot between burns. Use a snuffer instead of blowing the candle out in order to prevent any soot from falling into the wax.
The LARRABEE Candle Care Kit contains both tools (trimmer & snuffer).
Life of natural soy wax candles
LARRABEE candles embrace the imperfection that comes along with making the perfect soy wax candle without adding more than needed. Some candles may have slight imperfections, but they will burn just fine. The shelf life of each candle is approximately 12-18 months because it's an organic wax that naturally deteriorates. So for maximum quality and enjoyment, you should use your candle up within 12-18 months. No worries though, you can still burn the candles safely after that.
