This candle comes in a glass with a clear label outside (that goes almost all around the candle, with a small slit at the back) that looks even more stunning as the candle burns. The box keeps the candle safe during shipping and makes it perfect for gift giving! All of our candles are made and poured by hand. They are 100% pure soy wax, which has a great scent throw and burn time. Soy is also a renewable source and environmental friendly!
