How Can We Help You Today?
Here, we’ve answered some frequently asked questions. If you don’t see the answer to your question, please reach out to us directly. We’d love to hear from you.
Q: How long will my candle last?
A: Soy wax not only burns cleaner, but it also lasts longer. Our 8oz candles burn an average of 55-60 hours and our 16oz candles burn an average or 75-80 hours. You can help your candle live its best life by following the candle care tips to being a good candle parent.
Q: One of my candles arrived damaged. Can it be replaced?
A: Of course! We try to package your order with as much care and attention as possible. Sometimes, despite our bubble wrap and packing peanuts, even that isn’t enough to conquer the beast that is “shipping”. As soon as you notice any damage, please take a photo of the item and the shipping box. Contact us and we will mail a replacement. Please, no matter how good it smells or how tempting it is, DO NOT attempt to use a damaged candle. Carefully dispose of the remnants to avoid injury.
Q: The candle I want is out of stock online. What should I do?
A: When a certain product is out of stock online, there are a couple of things that you can do. 1) Sign up for the VIP club to stay alerted on new products, re-stocked inventory, and product exclusives. 2) Follow us on social media to see A) when the product is back in stock and B) where we are vending because we may have the product on-hand.
Q: I have sensitivities to candles due to certain respiratory issues. Are these candles safe for me?
A: Always be sure to consider your health and consult with your doctor to see how a certain product may affect you specifically. With this in mind, The Common Scents Co uses 100% soy wax as opposed to paraffin wax which is used in most candles sold by large retailers. Unlike paraffin wax, soy wax does not emit any of the harmful toxins that aggravate the respiratory system. Soy wax burns cleaner and lasts longer which equals a double win! All our scents are made with phthalate-free oils and each wick is made with a cotton core instead of lead. We’re keeping your health in mind.
Q: I’d like to make a custom candle but I’m not exactly sure where to start. What should I do?
A: There are so many options when customizing a candle. You can customize the jar, the scent, the label, or a combination of all three. The first step is to send us a message with your idea and let us walk you through your vision.
Q: How long does it take to receive my custom order?
Each custom order, like all of our products, are handmade and hand poured. Depending on the extent to which your order has been customized, please allow at least 14 days for the completion of your order. No worries though! We work very closely with each client and you will be updated at every stage of the process.
Q: How long does it take to receive my candles after I order?
A: We handcraft and hand pour each candle in small batches. Please allow at least 4 days before your order ships out. We use that time to put a little extra love into your order. Once your order ships, you’ll be able to track your package with the designated shipping carrier.
Q: I want to host a special event featuring your products. How can I make that happen?
A: We absolutely LOVE doing special events. Right now, we’re taking extra precautions in light of COVID so events are limited. Please reach out to us directly so that we can partner together to bring a touch of magic to your special occasion.
Q: Do you offer wholesale?
A: We absolutely do. Please reach out to us directly so that we can provide the necessary information to create a wholesale partnership.
Q: My organization is hosting a fundraiser. Can we sell The Common Scents Co candles?
