Boy, talk about nit-picking! Our votive candles are hand-poured, of course. Then, while the wax is cooling, each wick is individually straightened! This is followed by a final pour. All done with the best ingredients - including the finest waxes, wick, and naturally, fragrances (if scented). Why? Because we want every candle we make to burn perfectly. We wouldn't have it any other way!
