What Makes Nordic Scents Candles Sustainable?

Comprised of Clean and Ethical Components

We use 100% all-natural soy wax, farmed in the United States. Soy is a plant-based, non-toxic, biodegradable, and renewable resource that offers a clean and long-lasting candle burn. The chemical change from liquid vegetable oil to solid wax makes formal organic certification unfeasible; yet we do source wax made from organic soybeans assuring no pesticides were used in production. Locally produced soy also lowers our carbon footprint.

Candle fragrances are infused with essential oils that are phalate-free and exclude additional known carcinogens, mutigens, and toxins. Our fragrances are also vegan and cruelty-free.

We pour our candles into recycled content glass vessels (very suitable for candle re-use, upcycling, or recycling) and use organic hemp wicks dipped in beeswax or wooden wicks ethically sourced from US-based Forest Stewardship Council Certified Mills.

Eco-Friendly Packaging and Shipping Supplies

We use only environmentally responsible packaging and shipping materials (including eco-friendly custom stickers and product labels and naturally biodegradable, compostable, and fully recyclable protective wrapping).
