FAQ

  1. Simple Ritual candles are made with clean scents, organic coconut and soy wax, a non-toxic FSC certified wooden wick and recyclable packaging. Every candle is vegan, paraben-free, phthalate-free, cruelty-free & non-toxic.

I hand blend my scents using essential oils and clean synthetic fragrances in our seasonal and vintage collections. The use of these ingredients allows us to create a more complex scent with a stronger scent throw than a 100% natural scent. Every Simple Ritual candle is paraben-free, phthalate-free and preservative-free. We offer a selection of essential oil-only candles in our essentials collection.


All of our products are made by myself and a small team in Mississauga, in our small but mightily studio.


Yes! We would love to work with you on any custom candles for you, your store or your business. Please email us at kayla@simpleritualcandles.ca with your details and let's make some magic together!


It depends on the size of the candle, to be honest! The 7.2 oz candles burn for 40-50 hours and the 4 oz candles burn for 20-30 hours. The best way to make your candles last is to let them melt right to the edge of the glass during the first burn. This ensures that every time your burn your candle it will always reach the edge. Burn them for no more than 3-4 hours at a time. Trim the wick to ¼" before each re-lighting. Make sure to burn your candle on a stable, heat-safe surface away from flammable materials and surfaces. When it's burning, keep your candle in sight, away from children and pets.


Ummmm yes!! Here at Simple Ritual, we highly encourage repurposing and reusing your candle vessels. It's easy to reuse your candle glass: clean out the wax with hot water and soap (click here for a detailed guide to cleaning the candle), use a spoon to pry out the wick base and then wash it out with soap and water. Easy as that, now you’ve got yourself a fancy water glass, a trail mix tray, a ring holder, or a vase for your plant babies.


We do! If you would like to work together for a wholesale partnership, please reach out via kayla@simpleritualcandles.ca for a copy of our wholesale catalogue.


We love accepting donations from our community! If you have some treasured vintage glasses that no longer serve you, and would like to donate them to us, please email us at kayla@simpleritualcandles.ca with some information on the type of containers you have, how many, etc and we'd be happy to coordinate a pickup/drop off time if they are suitable for candle burning.


Inspired by sustainability we offer a candle refill service for previously purchased Simple Ritual Candles. Visit our Refill Page for more information.

Because we hand pick and pour each candle in small batches, we release new candle batches every 1-2 months; each batch contains approximately 25 vintage candles. Each of our candles is one of a kind and curated with the intention to bring our community and customers a different kind of shopping experience. Please be patient as we craft each batch of candles with love and care.
