What are your candles made of?
Illuminate Harmony Candle Company uses only premium quality ingredients with our scented candles. Without additives or dyes, you can enjoy a candle that is made from natural soy wax, braided cotton wicks, and scented oils.
Where do you get your materials?
We are committed to supporting US manufacturers and source all of our materials from companies in the USA.
Where are your candles made?
All of our candles are hand-poured and hand-packaged in New Jersey. We’re not open to the public at the moment.
Do you have a store I can visit in-person?
At this time we do not have a stand-alone store of our own. However, you can shop all of our products online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on our website.
How long do your candles last?
As long as you keep the wick trimmed, we recommend burning our 6oz candles for around 4-5 hours at a time, which should last about 30 hours. The 9oz candles should last about 50 hours.
Why should I trim the wick and only burn your candles for 4-5 hours at a time?
This is common instructions and good practices for any candle, meant to prolong its 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. However, you can slow down how fast it melts by keeping wicks trimmed and burning for a short period of time (4-5 hours at a time). This will increase the longevity of your candles meaning they’ll last longer.
When burning a candle for 4-5 hours, the wax melts all the way to the edge of the container. The melted wax from the flame gives off your candle’s scent(not the flame), so this will maximize your fragrance when lit. It also prevents candles from tunneling, or burning a hole down the centre of the candle while leaving a ring of unburned wax around it.

What makes an all-natural soy wax candle different?
While paraffin wax is refined from crude oil, soy wax is made from soybeans- a 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 last longer.
