Sometimes the best things are found off the mainstream route. "Road Less Traveled" is all the good scents you didn't expect to find together, hints to name. A wonderful blend of Australian sandalwood, cedarwood, cardamom, iris, violet and leather, this candle will have you walking, skipping, and running off the beaten path. After-all, the beauty of not making reservations or commitments ahead of time is that we can change our plans if we want!
History of The Name:
The story begins at the Hat Creek Cattle Company in the fictional south Texas border town of Lonesome Dove and revolves around the two former Texas Rangers Gus and Call as they lead a cattle drive to Montana. Along the way, they take many routes less traveled and sometimes those places provide the most rewarding life-long memories.
About Our Candles:
The production is kept small — candles are poured in batches of 6-8 in Austin, TX. Each candle, from placing the all-natural wick, to wax melting and pouring, to wick-cutting and labeling, is constructed by hand with the highest standards in mind. Under optimal conditions, our 9 oz candles will burn for 50+ hours and our 16oz will burn for 90+ hours.
Benefits of Soy Wax:
Eco-friendly, renewable, and sustainable
Helps support the American farmer
Cleans up easier using soap and hot water
Longer burn time
To ensure safe and even burning, allow the wax to puddle entire length of jar before blowing out and limit the amount of burn time to no more than 3 hours per burn. Trim wicks to ⅛" to ¼" prior to each burn.
After the Burn:
To continue our sustainability efforts, jars can easily be cleaned out and reused. Pour your favorite whiskey on the rocks or throw some canning lids on to preserve your favorite vegetables.
