Product Details

Brand-new for fall 2021! Bright, tangy CHERRIES meet the smooth fragrance of sweet toasted ALMONDS! 🍒

Hand poured, locally-made candles.

The Vintage Canning Collection is an assortment of vintage-inspired candles made with 100% all natural and uncolored soy wax (good for the environment and the senses!) Reminiscent of grandma’s canning pantry, these candles are created in retro-style mason jars. Hand-crafted in an abundance of delectable fragrances, these delicious candles are a throwback to days gone by.


"At the Outer Banks Candle Company, candle making is a labor of love! So many variables come into play in the process…wax is melted at high and precise temperatures, while room temperature must be consistently cool and humidity low. Colors, wicks, and fragrances are added while the wax is at its HOTTEST. Think of sweet tea here: everyone is these parts knows that you add the sugar (and LOTS of it!) to sweet tea while its hot! Same idea with candles… these ingredients are added while the wax is hot, so the wax and fragrance are evenly and adequately fused. Then the wax is allowed to cool to just the right temperature for pouring (candles are temperamental little buggers!) Then, once the wax is poured, these sweet little candles have to be “babysat” over the next 24 hours to ensure that air does not become trapped inside and the surface dries smoothly. All of this to ensure that the candles cure properly, burn evenly and hold as much fragrance as the wax can contain! Once the process is complete, then each and every candle is cleaned and trimmed, and wrapped and labeled by hand. The secret ingredient: LOTS of experimentation and even more TLC!"
