Frequently asked questions:
Question: What are the burn times of each candle?
Answer: Burn times of course vary by candle and can never be precise depending on the environment they are burned in. But generally our candles burn as follows:
6 oz Tins:
8 oz Glass Jars: 50-55 hours
12 oz Glass Jars: 85-90 hours
3 oz melts: Can vary the most, but usually 50+ hours per tray of 6
Question: Are all of your candles really "hand poured"?
Answer: Absolutely! We take great pride in the fact that all of our candles are made exclusively by us from beginning to end. From our secret "recipes" in the scents, to our 100% natural soy wax, we hand pour each and every candle we sell.
Question: Is every candle you sell 100% natural?
Answer: No. Due to high demand on some of a very requested popular scents, we do pour scents with fragrance oils as well as essential oil scents. Let's face it, nature doesn't have a natural lemon pound cake scent :)
Question: How do you ship?
Answer: Orders are shipped USPS. Depending on the size and weight of the package it will either be shipped 1st class or priority flat rate mail and usually arrives in 5-7 business days from date of shipping.
Question: Why aren't all the ingredients listed for the scent?
Answer: We clearly list what is essential oils and what is fragrance oils, but we do not put the individual oils or fragrance oils on purpose to protect our unique scents that you will only find from us.
Question: Why can't I get colored candles, like red for cinnamon?
Answer: We purposely leave all of our candles the natural creamy white color of the soy wax. We preserve the "natural" approach with everything we can.
Question: What is the difference between other melts/candles and your soy melts/candles?
Answer: This is our most commonly asked question and the reasons are many. Here is why we believe our soy products are simply better:
Our candles and melts have no chemical stabilizers or artificial colors or dyes. All of our candles are creamy white in color, the natural color of the soy wax. Most candle wicks also contain unhealthy metals, our wicks are made from 100% paper and cotton and burn clean. 100% Essential Oil choices allow scents which are about as pure as you can get. We want to offer you the best for your air.
Your money goes further! Soy wax candles and melts burn on average up to 50% longer. Our candles burn the wax down the side of the container as well and stop a safe distance just below the bottom, so you are not throwing away a ton of your candle in the end.
Soy does not contain the toxins that other candles and melts do. Paraffin candles, the ones you would normally buy in the store or online, are actually an undesired part of petroleum crude oil. You are releasing a petro-carbon soot into the air you breathe by burning it. This soot stains your walls, furniture, and is circulated through your air ducts. According to the American Lung Association, this soot can contain up to 11 documented toxins, 2 of which are known carcinogens — toluene and benzene.
Colorado Earth scents puts all the quality in quality wax and oils. Although the reusable contain is lovely, we want our scent and your decor to be the showcase. We minimize the packaging and labeling so there is less waste and more enjoyment of scent and candle glow!
Soy is a natural and renewable ingredient. Our soy is grown right here in the United States.
Question: Do you offer a reseller/wholesale program?
Answer: Yes we do on minimum orders of $300 or greater. Please send us an email and we would be happy to discuss the options.
