BIRCH HOUSE CANDLES is a small-batch soy candle company, based in Short Hills, NJ.

We are dedicated to hand-pouring beautiful soy candles with premium fragrances that are environmentally safe. Inspired by simple and natural beauty as well as an obsession with candles, Emily Gunselman, Owner and Candle Maker, set out to make a luxury candle that is accessible,  handmade and 100% sourced in the USA.  After hours of burn testing, wick selection and perfecting fragrances, Emily Is proud to offer her soy candles for all to enjoy. "I feel candles should be an experience, from the way it looks, its packaging, to the way it burns and fills the room.  Candles are a simple luxury everyone can enjoy!"

Each Candle is made entirely by hand. Birch House Candles uses renewable U.S. grown soy wax, which burns longer and cleaner, eco-friendly and non-toxic cotton wicks and premium phthalate-free fragrance oils. No color dyes are added, which allows the feature to be pure cream soy wax. A minimal label and simple logo allow the beauty of the candle to shine through.

Candle Care

We want you to get the most out of your new candle. Follow these important steps.

Let the candle burn long enough to allow the wax pool to reach the edge of the container

(about 3 hours on the first burn). This will prevent "tunneling" down the middle of the candle.

Candles have a memory, so they will only burn as wide as the last time it was burnt.

Keep your wick trimmed to 1/4 inch to prevent mushrooming of the wick and extend the life of your candle.

Extinguish your candle when 1/2 inch of wax remains and remember to reuse or recycle your glass or tin.

Soy wax is easily washable with soap and water. Pull off the wick and your vessel is ready for it's next life!
