Regular price $16.00 Sale

It's 1965 and you and your friends are camped outside of the next stop on Bob Dylan's Tour of North America. All the hippy smells and singing "The Times They Are A-Changin."

Bring the mesmerizing sensation of a campfire indoors and gather around your campfire candle. All of our Campfire Candles are hand-poured in small batches at our farm in the Flint Hills region of Kansas. We use clean-burning soy wax and large wood wicks made from responsibly harvested softwood. 

Scent: Nag Champa and Patchouli (Fragrance oils are phthalate-free and are not subject to the California prop 65 warning)

Net Weight: 7 ounces / 198 grams

Container: 9-ounce amber-tinted straight-sided glass jar with a black metal lid.

Candle Burning Tips: Be sure to burn the candle long enough for the wax to melt all the way across the jar before blowing out each time. This will help the wax burn properly so you get the most out of your candle. Be sure not to trim the wick too short as this will cause the candle to drown in wax.

IMPORTANT Candle Safety

Burning candles is a fun activity, however, it is imperative that you follow proper safety protocols while burning candles, wax melts, and campfire starters. Thousands of house fires are started every year by people who don’t follow safety rules. We want you to enjoy your candle and not burn your home down! Let’s go through some basic safety and legalese and once that is out of the way you can begin the fun! Never eat the wax, drink the wax, or slather soy wax on your skin, and please don’t pour wax down your drains. Use common sense!

Container candles and votive candles-

VOTIVE CANDLES MUST BE BURNED IN A PROPER VOTIVE CANDLE HOLDER! Votives are made to liquefy so should only be used in an appropriate, snug-fitting holder. Votives should never be burned freestanding. We do not sell votive candle holders so this is something you will need to buy.

How to Burn a Candle Safely from the National Candle Association

Before Lighting:

  • Before burning, always trim the wick to ¼ inch. You can use a wick trimmer, nail clippers, or scissors. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning, dripping or flaring.
  • Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
  • Always use a candleholder specifically designed for candle use. It should be heat resistant, sturdy, and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.

Burn candles in a well-ventilated room:

  • Avoid drafts, vents, or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting, and excessive dripping.
  • In general, it is recommended that candles do not burn for longer than three hours and cool for at least two hours before relighting.
  • When lighting a candle, use long matches or a long-reach lighter. Keep your hair and loose clothing away from the flame.

While Burning:

  • Never leave a candle unattended.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from walls, ceilings, furniture, drapes, bedding, bath towels, toilet paper, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, clothing, hair, etc.
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets. Do not place lighted candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets or anyone else.
  • Never touch or move a candle while it is burning or while the wax is liquefied.
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 1/2 inch remains in the container or 2 inches if using a pillar candle.
  • Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another. This is to make sure they don’t melt one another, or create their own drafts that will cause the candles to burn improperly.
  • Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts before re-lighting.
  • Never use a candle as a night light or while you may fall asleep.
  • Be very careful if using candles during a power outage. Flashlights and other battery-powered lights are safer sources of light during a power failure. Never use a candle during a power outage to look for things in a closet, or when fueling equipment – such as a lantern or kerosene heater.

When Extinguishing a Candle: 

  • Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle. It’s the safest way to prevent hot wax from splattering.
  • Never use water to extinguish a candle. Water can cause the hot wax to splatter and might break a glass container.
  • Make sure the candle is completely out and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
  • Don’t touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
  • Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.
