- These limited edition, mason jar soy candles were created as a fundraiser, an ode to our family's last three rescue dogs who have passed on. They make a great gift for any pet parent, or if you just feel like rewarding yourself, and doing GOOD at the same time!
Francesca, my moms dog, was our most recent loss. You can read about her story here. For this fundraiser, I asked my local shelter to give me a list of items they need. The proceeds of the sale of these candles will go towards purchasing those supplies, and hopefully I'll have a lot to drop off this Giving Tuesday!
FRANCESCA: Eucalyptus with a hint of thyme for good balance. An upscale, spa-like scent, that's as fancy pants as little Francesca was. Strong, clean and beautiful.
RUSTY: Rich, earthy oak, with an undertone of sophisticated vanilla liqueur. Deeply mysterious, masculine and smooth. Although there was nothing at all mysterious (or smooth) about Rusty, he sure was was a big guy in a little body.
TRINA: A spot-on dupe of Theirry Mugler's 'Angel' perfume. Soft, sweet woods and florals, balanced by citrus and grounded by patchouli. Warm and mesmerizingly beautiful, I cannot think of a more appropriate scent choice for the grateful Angel that was Trina.
Thanks so much for taking the time to look at this listing.
I'm hoping the items I can buy will provide some support and comfort for shelter animals while they patiently wait for a Forever Home. I wish you, you human family and all your fur-babies Happy Holidays!

☞ Glass jars & metal lid can be re-purposed or recycled
- When burning, always allow enough time for the candle to form a full melt pool. This means the melted wax should reach all edges of the glass with each burn. This will prevent 'tunneling', use up all the wax and leave you with a clean jar. A full melt pool also provides the best scent!
For this size jar, a full melt pool will most likely be achieved in about two hours with the first burn, and at about three hours on subsequent burns. (The top of the jar has a smaller diameter than the middle of the jar)
Your candle will last longer if you burn it no longer than four hours at a time. You're looking for a short, steady flame. If your flame starts to get very tall, or goes wonky, blow out the candle, trim the wick an re-light.
For the cleanest burn, always trim the wick to 1/4" before re-lighting.
