YOU BURN CANDLES AROUND YOUR PETS AND FAMILY MEMBERS, YOU SHOULD KNOW WHAT'S IN YOUR CANDLES.  

Wooden Wicks

The hand-crafted wooden wicks we use at Coastal Cove Candle Co. are eco-friendly, clean-burning, and are made from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified Wood. Our wooden wicks offer a subtle crackle that is reminiscent of a fireplace on a smaller scale. Wooden wicks are more sustainable than cotton wicks. They are made from only 100% sappy fruit trees. Wood wicks burn more evenly, and cleaner than cotton wicks. They also produce less soot than traditional wicks!

Our Wax

The wax we use at Coastal Cove Candle Co. is soy wax. Soy wax is a 100% natural wax derived from the vegetable soybeans. After the beans are harvested, they are then cleaned, cracked, de-hulled and rolled into flakes. Soybean oil is then extracted from the flakes, and the leftover flakes are used for animal feed. Soy wax is made from environmentally friendly, renewable resources; whereas classic paraffin wax is made from petroleum and is non-renewable.  Not only are there “green” advantages to choosing soy wax over a different type of candle wax, but soy wax also burns slower than paraffin wax, meaning you get a candle that lasts longer.  While all candles emit some black soot while burning, candles made from soy wax burns cleaner, and results in less soot. Another reason to choose soy wax when it comes to candles, is the fact that soy wax is an excellent fragrance carrier that does not require chemical amplifiers.  The result is a well-balanced true to scent candle.

Fragrance Oils

Our fragrances are skin-safe, paraben-free, phthalate-free, vegan blends that are never tested on animals.

Concrete Vessels

Our concrete vessels are made with pigments that are obtained from natural earths and ochres, extracted from quarries. These non-toxic pigments yield soft natural tones with a matte opaque finish and are UV resistant. Completely reusable after you are done burning your candle!
