We have partnered with Prairie Sun Candles, a Manitoba-based company that is very close to our hearts, to bring you a collection that has been crafted with sustainability and minimal-waste at the forefront of design. All our candles are made using all-natural, 100% soy wax and paraben- and phtalate-free oils sourced from a local small business. Our candle jars have been thrifted and upcycled by our team, and we use scrap fabric to protect any jars that do not have lids. We hand-pour all our candles in Calgary, AB and have made sure to add a dash of love to each one!
Your candle’s jar has been previously loved and upcycled by our team. You can reuse your candle container as a glass, herb planter, or candy dish., or you can return it to us for $1 off your next candle purchase.
To return your candle vessels, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know how many you will be returning and when you will be doing so. Please indicate whether you would like to purchase a new candle at that time or if you would like to have a candle(s) made in the jar(s) you will be returning. The candle containers do not have to be returned clean; we are experts at cleaning up candle wax!
Our two candle jar drop-off locations are:
123 Woodford Cres. SW
Calgary, AB T2W 4C6
Candle jars can be dropped off at this location and left on the front steps at any time of day, seven days per week.

Here are a few tips to keep your candles in tip top shape:
- On first use, burn for at least two hours and let wax melt to edges
- Avoid burning for longer than four hours
- Trim wick before relighting
- Always burn on a heat-resistant surface
- Stop use when only 1/4" of wax remains
- Keep away from kids and pets
Prairie Sun Candles is a mother and son, family-run business located in Stonewall, Manitoba. Prairie Sun has been making soy-based, hand-poured candles for almost a year and have been steadily gaining fans and notoriety since starting their venture. Prairie Sun also happens to be owned and operated by our cousins! We have worked hard alongside them to get their wonderful business up and running and could not be more excited to see them growing and succeeding more and more each week. Our candles have been made with love, care, and guidance from Rachel at Prairie Sun. We cannot wait to see what the future holds for this partnership!
