In stock


Part of the Pandemic Candle Collection, Shell-ter in Place is a day at the beach in a candle.  You may not be able to go to the beach, but you can have a day of escape at home with your candle.  A mix of sun, sand, and sunscreen, this candle has a strong beach scent.  Each candle contains a swirl of colored soy wax and some soy shells on top.  Shells will melt with the first extended burn.  As each candle is prepared by hand, and in small batches, there will be variations in swirl patterns, shell varieties, net weight and burn time.  The Shell-ter in Place soy wax candle is an 8 oz tin candle with a minimum net weight of 5.5 oz (155g), a typical net weight of 5.5-6.5 oz, and an estimated burn time of 40-55 hours.

Burning Instructions
Keep wick trimmed to 1/4 inch. Keep wax free of any foreign debris. It is important that your initial burn last at least two hours and develop a full burn pool (from edge-to-edge) to avoid tunneling and difficulty lighting the candle in the future.  Never burn more than 4 hours at a time. Keep away from drafts. Discontinue use when only 1/2 inch of wax remains.

Safety Information
Follow the instructions to prevent fire hazard or injury. Never allow candle or product to burn while unattended. Keep out of reach of small children and pets. Allow candle to cool completely before handling. Always burn products on heat resistant, level surface. Do not burn around other flammable materials.

    I absolutely LOVE this candle! Since we have not been able to travel due to the pandemic, the scent of this candle brings me back to the beach plus I love the packaging. Now that I am working out of my home, they're my "little treat"!!! All of the candles that I have bought from you smell so delicious. I have given them as gifts to friends and family who absolutely love them. Highly recommend!
