Botanical Bliss. Ardor Bin provides us with the most pristine- burning coconut and soy wax candles on the planet. They source raw and natural ingredients to create plant-based, vegan, cruelty-free aromatics that make us feel good about what we bring into our home, improve our mood, and upgrade our space.
- Ocean Vibes Ardor Bin’s Botanic Sea fragrance carries you away to the coastline with the openness of aquatic winds and sea air. Botanic Sea opens with top notes of lemon, eucalyptus, and jasmine. The fresh marine lily-white florals and driftwood complete this oceanic delight.
- Heavy-Metal Free. Ardor Bin abstains from using metal wicks like some candle artisans because once exposed to heat, they can release airborne-heavy metals, including mercury and lead, associated with a host of harmful effects, namely neurological and behavioral issues, hormonal imbalance, and reproductive problems.
- Ethically Sourced. Instead, Ardor Bin uses sustainably-sourced wooden wicks made from natural sappy fruit trees and sourced from the Forest Stewardship Council (a non-profit organization that protects and supports natural forests and farmers).
Why We Love It This is one candle we always reach for. It smells incredible and fills a room in as little as 30 minutes. We can keep this one burning for hours because the aroma is full and refreshing without being too intense. Synthetic fragrances are at the top of our list of things to avoid, so we love that burning a plant-based coconut or soy wax candle made by a Black woman is an option. We also love recycling our glass vessels as a mini vase for hand-cut floral centerpieces.
What You Should Know To melt properly, allow your candle to liquefy evenly across the glass before extinguishing.
Use a wick trimmer to keep your wood wicks 1/4 of an inch above the wax, maintaining a good flame.
How To Use It When it comes to candle burning, there is a bit of science behind it. You want to make sure that you burn your candle evenly and let the wax melt across the top layer. Doing so allows for a longer-lasting aromatic experience and helps to avoid “tunneling” or when wax builds up on the sides of your vessel.
What Makes It Green These plant-based botanical candles are vegan, cruelty-free, and free of parabens, phthalates, animal products, dyes, airborne heavy metals, or any of the other twenty toxic ingredients banned on our Toxic Twenty List.
Burn Time: 12oz. 80-90 hours
These candles are beautifully scented with fresh and sophisticated notes that make my home smell heavenly. The candle holder is very chic matte black glass. Love the crackle and pop sound that the lit wick makes—like a mini fireplace. I’m addicted. I wish you lots of success!!
