Your candle will take around 45 mins to 1 hour to make! Follow the instructions included in the candle kit, or visit our instructions page here.
Soy wax is water soluble, unlike parrafin wax! Once you're done making your candle, simply heat all your tools- such as your heat safe bowl, stirring stick etc- quickly in the microwave (ensruing you're not putting any metal in the microwave!). Once all the wax has been softened in the microwave, simply wipe down your tools with a paper towel. Discard the paper towel and proceed to wash your tools in hot and soapy water.
Due to the chemical structure of Soy Wax, cure time ca vary between wax types. We do suggest curing your candle for 2 days at least, but up to two weeks of curing time is best to achieve maximum hot and cold throw.
Each of our Candle Making kits makes a sinly 4 oz candle with a burn time of 20 hours.
Yes! Our wax is microwave safe (we do not recommend trying this with any other soy wax). Simply heat your wax in a heat safe jug (such as a mason jar) in 30 second bursts. Stir in between each burst, and stop when the wax is fully melted or has reached 160F.
We do NOT recommend using any leftover fragrance oil. These oils are not rated for use in cosmetics, and are not skin safe. Discard of any leftover fragrance oils.
DIY Beaded Necklace Kit FAQ's
Your chain is made from 18k gold plated brass, and should not tarnish whatsoever due to the quality of the plating. Please email us if your chain begins to tarnish! email@example.com
We hear you! Although we tested our chain design to ensure you can easily bead onto it without tools, qhich required our clasp to be on a slider bead- we do have suggestions for making your chain stronger! You can always add an earing backing to the end of your necklace to add extra security and ensure your clasp never comes off. Email us if it does! firstname.lastname@example.org

DIY Clay Mask Kit FAQ's
The instructions included in the mask allow for 6 applications. Many customers report halving the recipe included to make up to 12 masks!
We recommed masking a maximum twice a week. Clay can be very harsh on this skin due to it's pH level. Over masking can lead to dry and dehydrated skin- so we would stick to once a week personally!
Due to the nature of natural cosmetic ingredients, we suggest consulting your doctor before using any new cosmetic. Always patch test before use.
DIY Deodorant Kit FAQ's
All you need is a double boiler and a timer. Make a double boiler by placing a large metal bowl over a small pot that is 1/4 filled with water. Once the water starts to boil, you place your deodorant base (included in your kit) into the metal bowl until melted. This takes under 4 minutes! Once melted, whisk in your clay, remove from heat and add in your essential oils (clay and essential oils both come in your kit!). Mix for the last time before pouring carefully into your tube (also included in kit). For best results, leave on the countertop overnight or push up within 3 hours if you are impatient!
Remembering that a little goes a long way, your 2 oz. deodorant stick should last around 3 months or normal use.
We sell kits within 1 month of production, meaning you have around 2 months to make your product! This will ensure your product is used within 6 months of manufacture.
