Established in 2019, California Handcrafted is an eco-friendly company owned and operated by the Baugher family.
Our candles are made from all-natural soy wax which gives them a smooth, silky appearance. If burned properly, they burn clean - almost no smoke. We make our candles in small batches just a few at a time and use cotton wicks. All fragrance oils used are phthalate free.
Each candle is poured, labeled and packaged by hand in our home-based studio in Santa Clarita, California with views of the beautiful San Gabriel Mountains. Our candles are sold in convenient travel tins and are categorized by collections. We love to customize orders and make our candle followers happy. We are both excited and proud to have the opportunity to create beautiful candles, spreading warmth, light and happiness wherever they may sparkle.
Q: What are your candles made of?
A: California Handcrafted scented candles are made with all-natural soy wax, braided cotton/paper wicks, and scented oils. Just wax, wick, and scent with no other additives or dyes.
Q: Where are your candles made?
A; All of our candles are hand-poured and hand-packaged in our workshop in Santa Clarita, CA. At this time our workshop is not open to the public.
Q: Why should I trim the wick and only burn your candles for 4-5 hours at a time?
A: These are common instructions and good practices for any candle and are meant to prolong a candle’s burn time. A longer wick creates a larger flame, a larger flame melts the wax faster, and the wax melts faster than the wick burns away. So the longer your candle burns, the larger the flame gets, causing your candle to melt faster and faster. Keeping the wick trimmed and burning 4-5 hours at a time slows everything down so you get a longer burn time.
Q: How quickly will my order ship?
A; We make every effort to ship your orders as quickly as possible. Most orders placed before 12 pm PT Monday-Friday will go out the same day. Orders placed after 12 pm or on weekends will go out the next business day.
Q: What makes an all-natural soy wax candle different?
A: While paraffin wax is refined from crude oil, soy wax is made from soybeans- a completely renewable resource grown here in the US. Compared to paraffin, soy wax burns cleaner with no petrol-carbon soot. Soy wax also burns slower than paraffin, so soy wax candles also last longer.
