When will my order ship?

Your order will be shipped shortly after we have received payment and after your order has been processed. I typically have inventory on hand, therefore processing is just a matter of packing up your order however I do need to occasionally restock various scents depending on how many orders come through at once (it gets crazy sometimes LOL) and when this happens I do have to actually make the candles, which takes 48 hours minimum – mostly for cure times as I want to ensure you’re candles are ready to use as soon as you receive them!

You can also check on your order by creating an account. After you have placed an order you may click on the “My Account” at the top right-hand side of the website next to our social media links.
