FAQs

 

  • What is an intention candle? How do you use it?
    • An intention candle is simply designed to help you keep your intentions top of mind. Good Intentions candles are designed to help you carve out moments in your day to turn within, and nurture your mind and soul with daily rituals of self care. I operate under the belief that what you think about you bring about - each candle has an affirmation on the label that is designed to help you stay focused on your intentions so you can remain mindful throughout your day.
  • Is your packaging sustainable?
    • Yes! I aim to only use sustainable, recyclable, and recycled materials wherever possible. In the summers I do have to use some foil bubble wrap and sometimes ice packs (when shipping to an extra hot location) because all natural soy wax candles are susceptible to melting in shipment. I refuse to use toxic and environmentally degrading additives in my candles and believe that the little bit of extra packaging in the summer is an acceptable compromise.

  • Why is my candle bumpy after burning it?
    • This is a sign of true 100% pure soy wax and is completely normal.
  • Can I buy Good Intentions in stores?
    • At this time my candles are only available on www.goodintentionsstudio.com
  • What charities do you donate to?
    • I currently donate 5% of my profits to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I often will donate to a different charity when I launch seasonal candles. I am open to adding more charities and rotating donations as time goes on. If you have a charity you would like me to consider please email me at hello@goodintentionsstudio.com - I would love to hear!
  • Where do you ship to?
    • Currently I only ship to the US and Canada
  • How long will it take to receive my items?
    • Processing times are 1-3 days after purchase, and once at the post office it generally takes 3-5 days to receive your items. Please see our shipping policies here.
  • Can I cancel or edit my order?

  • Where are your products made?
    • All candles are handmade in California
  • Are your products cruelty free and vegan?
    • Yes! I do not use any animal products, including bees wax, and I purchase only sustainably sourced and vegan ingredients.
  • Why isn’t the scent very strong when lit?
    • The ‘scent throw’ of a candle, or how strong it smells in a room, has to do with the size of the candle and the size of the room. Larger rooms, rooms with tall ceilings, and open floor plan homes require a larger candle or multiple candles to completely fill the room with fragrance.
  • Are your products paraffin free?
    • Yes, all Good Intentions candles are 100% soy wax, never any paraffin.
  • What are your candles made of?
    • I use 100% soy wax, pure cotton wicks, and clean phthalate free fragrance oils.
