Tell me more about your clean burning candles
Our candles are made with hand-poured soy blend wax, cotton wicks, and premium fragrance oils, for a clean-burning candle with an average burn time of at least 60 hours. Our candles are free from heavy metals, parabens, or other contaminants.
Planning your next event?
We're happy to host all events from networking and corporate events, to birthday parties and bridal showers. Appropriate for all ages. Submit your event inquiry here.
What is the time commitment?
The time commitment from start to finish is 30-45 minutes but it takes 2 hours for the wax to cure. If you need or want to pick-up your candle the same day, your candle must be completed at least 2 hours before we close (meaning, you must start pouring 3 hours prior to close).
Can I bring in my own container or fragrance oils?
For safety reasons, we only permit candles to be poured in our certified containers with Artifact's premium fragrance oils.
Do you offer any flameless options?
We do! In addition to candles, we offer Reed Diffusers and Premium Fragrance Oil.
Can I bring outside food/drink?
Outside food and drink can only be brought in during private events.
