About our candles
What is a Siblings candle?
Our candles are just like other premium candles, except they come in a plant-based bag and you can pour them into a reusable vessel of your choice. They contain everything you need to make a new candle—scented wax, wick, wick holder and simple step-by-step instructions.
10 oz of all natural, scented eco-friendly coconut blend wax. Non-toxic wax is free of parabens, paraffin and phthalates. Fragrance and essential oils are free of phthalates. Lead-free cotton wick. And wooden wick holder.
*All items --> wick, wick holder and warning label are inside the bag.
How do I make a Siblings candle?
Watch our easy how-to video below, or reference the instructions that come with your candle.
What kinds of vessels can I make a candle in?
Get creative. Have fun. Be safe. Here are some tips for selecting a suitable vessel.
As a rule of thumb, stick to tumblers, cups, and jars that can withstand heat, and won’t leak, crack, or catch fire.
|✔️ Approx. 3" wide||❌ Easily tips over|
|✔️ Glazed Ceramic||❌ Porous ceramic ie. terra cotta|
|✔️ Sturdy glass||❌ Wood, coconut shells, plastic|
|✔️ Sealed metal||❌ All flammable materials|
|✔️ Enamel||❌ Unable to hold water|
What if I don't have a microwave?
No microwave, no worries. You can still make a Siblings candle. Simply bring a pot of water to a low boil on your stovetop. Place the open bag of candle wax in the water and let it simmer until all the wax is melted—about 5 minutes. Carefully remove the bag and when it is cool enough to touch, pour liquid wax into your vessel.
Care & Safe Usage
How can I burn my candle safely?
- Burn candle within sight and never leave unattended.
- Keep away from wind drafts, flammable objects, pets and small children.
- Recommended burn time is no less than 1 hour and no more than 3-4 hours at once.
- Stop use when candle has ¼” wax left. Remove remaining wax and refill.
Any candle tips and tricks?
- To avoid that sooty effect that darkens your vessel, always trim your wick to 1/4” before lighting.
- Does your candle sometimes resemble a tunnel (i.e. wax sticks to the sides)? You can avoid that by letting your candle burn until the surface of the candle is completely melted. This usually takes about an hour per inch in diameter of your vessel.
- Size matters. Get creative with your vessels, but try to stick to around 3 inches in diameter for the optimal candle experience.
How do I clean remaining wax out my vessel?
Place your vessel in the freezer until it is cold, then gently scrape the frozen wax out with a spoon. Any wax residue can be washed out with warm water and dish soap. Pro tip—make sure to put any remaining candle wax in the bin, not down your drain.
How should I care for my Ceramic Forever Vessel?
Our handcrafted ceramic vessels are waterproof, but should never go in the dishwasher. Always clean your vessel by hand with warm water, soap and a soft sponge.
How should I care for my Brass Forever Vessel?
Our brass vessels are made of un-lacquered brass. They will naturally develop a beautiful patina with time and use. If you prefer a more polished look, you can clean it with a brass metal polish. The stains tell a story, but it is possible to make your vessel look like new as it ages.
Composting the bag?
Our new bags are 99% plant-based and 100% compostable. Please use the industrial composting facility nearest you. The bag will break down in a home composting environment over 16 weeks.
Our older style bags are a majority plant-based, and 60% of the bag will break down in a home composting environment over 16 weeks.
Feel free to also send us your bags back and we will compost them for you.
