The political climate in the US lately has lead to more censorship and pressure on personal freedoms.  As devoted readers, we find this trend of book banning appalling and we want to do something about it!

It's well known that censorship targets are generally books authored by people of color or authors from diverse backgrounds.  Help us join the fight to protect access to stories that challenge the mind and present differing opinions.

Each sale of "Ban Fascists, Not Books" and "Read Banned Books" candles will donate $3 to Pen America ( to help fight censorship, book banning and support creative freedoms in our great nation.

Protect free speech!  BAN FASCISTS, NOT BOOKS!

    For Wood Wick Candles
    • This candle has a crackling wood wick!  Make sure to trim it straight across and to 1/8" before lighting for the first time.
    • Trim any black burned or crunchy bits from the wick for best burning performance when relighting.

    For Cotton Wick Candles (4 oz & 2 oz Tins)

    • This candle has a natural cotton wick.  Make sure to trim it to approximately 1/4" before lighting for the first time.  If the wick is too long, the flame could be too tall.  
    • Trim to 1/4" each time before lighting for most consistent burn.

    For All Candles

    • To prevent tunneling, burn long enough to melt the full top of the candle each time you burn it.  Don't "power burn" (longer than 3-4 hours at a time).  Extinguish, allow to cool completely, then trim the wick before relighting.
    • Extinguish if container is too hot to touch, the flame is too tall (more than approximately 1 inch), or if the candle is smoking or sooting. Let the candle cool completely, trim the wick to 1/8" and then relight, if desired.
    • Never allow candles to burn all the way down or self-extinguish. Recycle the container when 1/4" - 1/2" wax remains.
    • To keep labels looking crisp and bright - keep away from direct sunlight, humidity and fluorescent lighting.
    • Always keep within sight and on a heat-resistant surface. Never leave a candle burning unattended.
