What's in Our Candles?

We are delighted that you are here AND that you care about what products you bring into your home.

In order for us to make quality products free from harmful materials, we did mega research.  After months of testing we chose eco-friendly, domestically grown, soy to be our wax.  And our wax is all-natural and non-GMO.

Next we add in the type of wick that promotes an even clean burn. 

This part of the process takes a VERY long time.  Because when you are choosing a wick for a vessel, it has to be just the right strength to provide a perfect melt pool (the melted wax reaches all sides of the vessel), and it has to get the wax hot enough to throw the scent (or hot throw) out into the room.

We choose cotton wicks.  They are for the most part self trimming, however we highly recommend trimming your wicks to 1/4 inch before each burn.  This allows for that nice even burn that we are looking for so that you have zero wax waste.  

Next is the fun part adding scent.  We really wanted to find a manufacture that provides the finest fragrance oils that are free from harmful chemicals. Our candles are Phthalates Free and Nitro Musk Free.


Love at First Glimpse!

Our gift wrapping was made to make you feel special. Whether you are treating yourself or gifting to a loved one. 

When It Started

When we first began Bella Vida Candles, we were on the floor in the loft, surrounded by kraft boxes, glue sticks, and paper. Working to get all the details just right. 

The Whole Family

Our favorite part of our business is that the whole family is involved. Our kids prepare each and every jar before they arrived at your door. 

Every Detail Matters

When you open the box you're greeted with candle care instructions and a jar of stick matches with a striker patch on the bottom.  

Candle Care

Yes, there is a way to care for your candle in order to get the most out of your purchase.

For the First Burn

Subsequent burns

General Candle Care Guidelines:

• Never leave a candle burning unattended.

• If the wick creeps to one side, blow out the candle and re-center the wick with a tweezers.

•Allow to completely cool before relighting.

• Keep lit candles away from any decor (curtains) and flammable material.

• Never burn a candle for more than 2-3 hours aft a time (with the exception of the first burn).

If you follow the candle care guide, you will be able to enjoy your candle longer, and save yourself some money.  

So whether you're getting a candle as a gift for yourself or someone you love, you can be assured they will feel the joy and happiness that we put into making the product the moment their eyes meet the package.

Thank you again for learning about the creation process and just more about us as people.  We can't wait to see your photos and hear how you enjoy the products.
