Our candles have undergone countless hours of testing to ensure the scent fills your room (whether it is lit or simply sitting there).  The fragrance will fill the room if you purchase this candle as a home decor item and never light it. 

The best part about this vessel is how you can repurpose it and use it to decorate your home once the candle is finished.  For inspiration make sure you follow us on Pinterest.

Dimensions: Since every dough bowl is different this is an approximation: 40" x 6" x 2".

Burn Life: Approximately 25-35 hours depending on wick type and the number of wicks.

Number of Wicks: Varies depending on bowl dimensions and if you choose wooden or braided cotton, 11-15 wicks per bowl.

Holds approximately 58 ounces of soy wax.

You can reuse the bowl for home decor or order a refill kit and enjoy it all over again.

How Are Dough Bowl Candles Made?

First, we apply a water-based (toxin-free) fire retardant.  Then we secure the wicks to the bowl using a high-temperature hot glue.

Every Candle Is Made with Top-of-The-Line Ingredients:

100% soy wax (from domestically grown soybeans), superior fragrance oils (phthalate and nitro musk free), and crackling wooden or braided cotton wicks.

What's The Difference Between Wooden and Cotton Wicks?

There are two main differences between wooden and braided cotton wicks.

  1. Wooden wicks crackle as they burn which adds another layer of coziness to your home.
  2. Braided cotton wicks have a narrower flame which melts the wax slower and allows your candle to have a slightly longer burn life.

    Light the wick and burn until a complete melt pool has formed (melted wax has reached the sides of the vessel).

    Cotton wicks take 3-4 hours; Wooden wicks take 4+ hours.


    Trim the wick to 1/4" long for cotton and 1/8th for wooden. Light the wick. Make sure the wick remains centered as it burns.


    Never leave a candle burning unattended.

    Use the lid as a candle coaster and set your candle on a fire resistant surface.

    If the wick creeps to one side, blow out the candle and recenter the wick with tweezers. Allow it to cool completely before relighting.

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

    Never burn a candle longer than 1 hour once a complete melt pool has formed.

    Extinguish the flame and upcycle the jar when a 1/4-1/2 inch of wax remains in the vessel.

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

    Thank you again for your support and purchase. You mean the world to our family and team!

    Over the top excited!!!

    I received my 40-Inch Dough Bowl Candle today and I was like a kid in a chocolate factory!! It is so beautiful and I can't wait to light it up. There were little special surprises sprinkled in the box along with wonderful care instructions for the candles and wicks. Very efficient and such a beautiful family business. They love treating their customers special and they certainly do. I will be back for more - in fact I placed my second order yesterday:O) Thanks so much, Ryan, Jess, Ali and James. Did I mention that they included a recipe card for Cinnamon Crackle Cookies? That little project will be taken care of tomorrow!!
