Clean and Conscious. 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.
- 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).
- Subtle and Serene Botanic Meadow opens with notes of tuberose and orange blossom while maintaining its subtle nature and delicacy with warm base notes of muhuhu wood and oud (agarwood) reminiscent of a fresh breeze over lush meadows.
Why We Love It 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. The aroma from the Botanic Meadow reminds us bellows out a crisp freshness that instantly transforms. We’ll be buying this scent forever. The cackling of the wood wick as it burns is an instant cozy cue, so once you whip these out plan to stay in, chill, and cuddle. 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.
