Shoo Fly 8 oz. Soy Candle

    Shoo fly, don’t bother me…or my horse. This fly spray inspired fragrance will remind of you post-pony bath smells in the summer. It has a strong citronella base topped with fresh eucalyptus and a citrusy blend of lemon and orange. Smells surprisingly good for a citronella: it works great outdoors on porches and patios to keep flies away without smelling like chemicals.

    All of our candles are made with 100% all-natural soy wax, hand-poured in small batches and blended with the maximum ratio of fully-concentrated fragrance oil (almost double the recommended amount), to make the best smelling, long burning candles. We use a hemp wick because hemp is more sustainable than cotton and burns hotter to improve the fragrance throw.

    Each candle container is handcrafted from beer and wine bottles using a 4-step cold-working process to repurpose the bottles into usable, upcycled containers for our candles. We use a wet saw to hand-cut the glass, then we use the flat lapidary wheel to: grind away any imperfections or chipping, pre-polish the now smooth edge, and polish to add shine back onto the glass.

    8 oz. beer bottle candles: Up to 60 hours
    12 oz. wine bottle candles: Up to 120 hours

    Our natural soy candles are au naturel: no artificial colors or dyes.


    • Always trim wick to 1/4 inch before lighting. We recommend using a wick trimmer for candles in narrow containers, like our bottles.
    • Allow top of candle to pool entirely with each burn.
    • Do not burn longer than 4 hours at a time. To maximize burn time, we recommend burning in 2-3 hour increments.
    • If the flame gets too tall it may cause cracks in the glass. Keep your wick trim.
    • Wick dippers are handy to extinguish the flame without any smoke and re-center the wick after each burn.

The 7-8 candles I received on my first couple orders were very impressive. The fragrance was as strong when burning as they were when unlit. The 3 candles I received on this last order, including Shoo Fly, smell nice when unlit, but smell sooty with minimal fragrance when lit and burning for an hour or 2. I worked for a small fragrance company for a couple years back in 2001-2002 and we sold mainly to candle companies so I have a little knowledge of your product. I was quite disappointed with this order though I will say your Earthen Oak is still the best candle I've ever burned.

Thank you for your honest feedback, Brian. And thank you for being a valued customer! Candles can take 2-3 weeks for the scent to cure to it's full strength. While we strive to give our candles the optimal cure time before we ship them out, we are a small operation and sometimes have to pour a fresh batch to fulfill orders. We suspect this may have been what happened with your latest order and sincerely apologize for the experience you had. Please allow us to make it right. Please check your email.
