why stay lit candles?
Many people ask why Stay Lit Candles and what makes your candles stand out from the rest? To me, that's always a hard question because there are so many great candle companies out there! When I speak about my own, I always enjoy expressing the amount of love, care, and attitude that goes into every single one of my candles! For me it's not just about running a business, but it's being able to put a smile on someone's face or just making them laugh with every purchase. You guys have no clue how happy I get when I see I have a new order I get to make! I do a little happy dance every time! All of my candles are hand-poured to order with 100% soy wax, cotton wicks, and phthalate free fragrance oils/essential oils. No matter what kind of small business you support, you're not only supporting someone's dream but you're contributing to someone's livelihood as well. That being said, without you guys my small business wouldn't even exist so I'll always put my heart and soul into every candle that goes out.

Even. burn. every. time.
With proper care your candles can last a long time and still look beautiful! Below are some candle care tips you can follow when burning our candles:
1) Your first burn is always the most important burn. Please be sure to burn your candle until you have an even melt pool. Typically 1 hour for every inch in diameter, but no more than 4 hours per burn. (Do this for every burn too!) Not doing this will result in tunneling and you won't be able to burn your candle properly.
2) Always trim your wick 1/4 inch before each burn! Doing this will prevent soot, and produce an even clean burn every time. If you trim your wick too short you will cause your wick to drown. If your wick is not trimmed you will have a high flame and alot of soot.
3) Read your warning labels on the bottom of each jar! We want the flame in the jar, NOT around the house guys!
4) To keep your candle scent fresh for burns to come; always place your lid back on your candle after each use.
5) The longer a soy candle cures, the stronger its scent throw will be when you burn it. The recommended cure time for a soy candle is 1-2 weeks. Since our candles are handmade to order, it is recommended! You don't have to wait this long to burn your candle but you will have a stronger hot throw when you do!
SELF. CARE. EVERY. DAY.
One thing we are big on here at Stay Lit Candles is self care. If you don't take care of YOU then how do YOU keep going? What better way than a witty candle? Sometimes a warm flame and a laugh does just the trick. We all need that reminder to just calm the fuck down sometimes. We understood the assignment. That's why we created our Foul Moodz Collection. Simply choose your size, mood, and scent and leave the rest up to us. Go ahead. Add one to the cart. We know you'll love it.

Let customers speak for us!
Packed with such care. Excellent communication. Truly the best Balsam Fir candle I've ever smelled and 'Tis the Season is great, too. Love the jar size. This wonderful company will have my business again...Thank you!
Since using these candles I don't buy anything else. I am so thrilled to get this Mason jar size. And they look like farmhouse chic. Yet refined. Love them!
I have been buying Stay Lit Candles for years now and they are my favorite! No more headaches from chemical fragrances. I love this new size candle. It really makes the room smell delicious.
I am a repeat customer and let me tell you, you will NOT be disappointed! These are dead on fragrant candles. They smell exactly as labeled.
I don't usually wrote reviews but I had to for these candles. They are absolutely the best candles I ever bought. They smell amazing and look just as amazing. I will never buy candles anywhere else from here on out. These are a must.
I purchased pina colada and watermelon for my mother and she absolutely loves them!!! The witchy bitchy is great as well. These are definitely a must have!!!
I bought the witchy bitchy scent and it is amazing!!!! Not just a halloween scent.
I purchased Crisp Apples and I absolutely love it! Smells so Authentic and gives my house the Christmassy smell I want! Must try!!!
I just want to start off by saying WOW! I really wasn't sure what scents to purchase so I got the Sampler Pack. I ended up e-mailing them because I still couldn't choose LOL. Rebecca really listened and chose four great scents based on what I told her I liked and I love them all! For 4 ounces they really do burn a long time and last awhile. I love that. I was really surprised. I'll definitely be buying these candles as gifts this year!
All of the candles I've purchased from here have been great. I just recieved my package yesterday and they all smell FAB. I want to eat them all hahaha. You can smell the cinnamon and apple/donut smell all throughout my living room with this one. Seriously love how they are made to order too. You really don't see that anymore. Rebecca was so helpful in helping pick scents based off of my sensitive nose lol and you can tell they are really made with care. I'll 10000000000% be back for more!!!!!!!!! Great quality!!!!
I’m amazed at how much scent they pack into each candle! So yummy!
OMG this is THE BEST Pumpkin candle I have ever smelled or bought!!! As soon as I opened it I fell in love. You can smell all the pumpkin and spices immediately.....SO YUMMY!!!! The packaging was super cute, and the note was so sweet. I'm already buying more. My favorite!!!!!!
So my sister loves candles and is always searching for the the smelliest (in the best possible way) candles out there. She always complains that you can smell a candle in the jar but once the candle is lit the smell seems to dissipate. Not These! I gifted the apple cider one to her because she lives in California and loves visiting the east coast in the fall. She said that you can smell this candle throughout her whole apartment, and she keeps raving about how it smells just like if you were apple picking in a field, which we used to do. Hearing her comments on the candle made me decide to grab one for myself. I could not be happier! This will always be a sure gift idea for my friends, family...and of course to myself. :)
