Frequently Asked Questions


What are your candles made from?

Edgewater Candles are made from midwestern soy wax, cotton wicks, and a blend of essential oils and phthalate-free scented oils. Using only these simple materials makes our candles clean burning and long lasting.


Can the Mason Jar be re-used?

Yes. Our Mason Jars are label and sticker free, and can be re-used once the wax has been spent.


How long do your candles last?

Our 10oz Mason Jar candles burn for approximately 60 hours, and our 6oz Tins burn for approximately 30-35 hours. To get the longest burn time from your candle, allow the wax to melt across to all edges of the container before extinguishing. This will help avoid “tunneling”, which can prevent some of the wax from being used. Keeping the wick trimmed will also ensure a longer burn time.


Are your candles made in the US?

Yes. All of our materials are sourced from the US, and we make our candles by hand in Illinois.
