What are our candles made of?

Our candles are made of premium soy wax. We also use 100% cotton wicks, and picked our essential oils and fragrance with care from high-quality ingredients, free of potentially harmful additives.

What do you do for the environment?

We know that transportation used to ship orders (when not picked up in person) burns fossil fuels and generates carbon emissions.

Since Day 1, we've been investing in sustainability initiatives to counteract the environmental impact of our shipping. We calculate the total emissions generated by your shipped orders, and offset and neutralize them by protecting forests through certified projects and partners, including Pachama, complying with the best-in-class carbon offset protocols and standards.

We recently decided to accelerate and have been working with Eden Reforestation Projects to plant mangrove trees in Madagascar. For each order, we will plant two trees on your behalf.

Why are our products tax-free?

As small business owners, we're currently exempted of charging and collecting HST/GST. So, for now, yes – you are saving money.

How fast do we ship? Can you pick up?

candēlae relies on our friends at Canada Post to ship your orders wherever you and your loved ones live. Once the order is placed, we will print the shipping label and give you the tracking number to follow its progress! Once shipped, it will usually be 2 business days in the GTA, up to 4 business days in Ontario, and 8 business days in other provinces.

You can also pick it up in Downtown Toronto. We're at the corner of Peter/King.

Can you give your candle a second life?

Of course, and we highly recommend it! It's easy to clean with just some soap and water. The jars used in the Live in the moment's collection make perfect whisky glasses, while the amber ones are amazing for your pumpkin seeds or whatever you want to store in!

Cherish yourself and spark joy around you.

Whatever the occasion is – as a gift to your partner, family, friend, colleague ... or just for yourself.
