  • How to have the best Solidago Farm candle burning experience.
    Hold the flame to the base of the wick to light candle. The first time you light your pillar or globe-shaped candle allow it to burn for two hours to develop its "melt pool." This will promote a better burning candle that will maintain its shape. The photo at left of Feelin' Ferny illustrates a lovely melt pool after a 2 hour and 15 minute initial burn. Trim wick to 1/4" before each burn to maintain a beautiful flame.
  • From where do you source your beeswax?
    Our pure beeswax is sourced from the honeybee hives at an organic farm in Western Wisconsin called Walsh Ridge Farms as well as other local farms. It's important to note that there is variability in the color of beeswax due to the pollen and nectar the bees gather as well as the heat from the solar extraction.
  • What are the sizes of your candles?
    Our pure beeswax candles are primarily globe- and pillar-shaped for long burning times. They come in a variety of sizes, and the sizes are listed in the candle description. A comparison of the globe-shaped candles from left to right: Crown of Lights, Fern Arable, Flame Dancer and Tinkerbell
  • How are your candles packaged and shipped?
    We honor the principle of REUSE from the waste management motto of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. We receive many packages, so we reuse the packaging material whether it be paper or plastic. We also use eco-friendly packing tape from EcoEnclose. Orders ship 1-3 days after placed. You'll receive an email notification to track your order to better anticipate your order's arrival. We ship with a Flat Rate, and the Flat Rate includes the cost of the box, label, packaging tape, handling and the actual cost of shipping. While the Flat Rate may seem high, candles and caramel honey are heavy! Holiday shipping: place orders before Thursday, December 16th to better ensure delivery by Christmas. Office pickup hours the week of Christmas are Monday, December 20th 11:00 am-8:00 pm, Tuesday, December 21st 8:00 am - 1:00 pm.
  • What is the difference between caramel honey and raw honey?
    Our caramel honey is another product of the bee hive. When honey is extracted from the beewax, some remains in the wax. A solar melter is used to remove the remaining honey, which takes on a richer flavor that is ideal for baking or drizzling.
