ABOUT US . . .
Wicksy Daisy of Wisconsin has moved its home base to the Denver, Colorado area (Highlands Ranch, CO) as of March 2017.
Wicksy Daisy Candle Co, LLC, established in 2015, is an eco-friendly company. All candles and melts are made with quality soy wax (soy beans harvested in the U.S), are completely dye free, and hand poured and hand packaged in Colorado. Wicksy Daisy uses the best candle making supplies available. Our products go through extensive testing & exceed most handmade and hand-poured standards such as centered wicks, smooth surfaces, and pristine packaging. Our lead free, cotton wicks and organic wood wicks are non-toxic, clean burning, and produce little to no soot when cared for properly (keep cotton wicks trimmed to 1/4 inch). We use the finest fragrance oils, which contain no harmful phthalates (see phthalate info below). Note: Soy wax cleans up easier from carpets and fabric with the use of soap and water.
We provide an assortment of Soy Candles, Wax Melts, and Electric Wax Warmers:
8 oz., 16oz., 24oz. apothecary jar candles, 5.3oz. travel tins, 8 pack tea lights, single tea light samplers, jar sachets, and wax melts for tea light or electric wax warmers. We strive to make pristine, quality candles and melts that burn clean and last much longer than petroleum based, paraffin candles (up to 3x longer). The soy wax melts are a wick free option and are designed for all types of warmers providing a lasting aroma for any room in your home. Our products are packaged beautifully with recyclable materials and always make the perfect gift.
Try our crackling wicks in our "Wood Wick" collection, and our cotton, lead free wicks from our "Daisy's Farmhouse" collection. We offer Limited Edition seasonal scents in the “Wood Wick" Collection from September-January.
Wicksy Daisy Candle Co welcomes you to experience the difference! Go to the PRODUCTS tab for a complete list of products. Go to the SHOP tab and choose from over 40 scent options!
What are Phthalates?
Phthalates, or phthalate esters, are esters of Phthalic acid. They are used to dissolve raw materials when making fragrance oils. They have been used for many decades in a myriad of pharmaceuticals, household and industrial products. Recently, there have been concerns that high levels of Phthalates can cause a host of health issues. It is not clear whether the levels that people encounter cause adverse effects, but it is crucial to us that our products don't pose any such risks.
While both the U.S. and Europe have imposed laws against Phthalates in children’s toys, (since they are put in the mouth) there are no rules against Phthalates in candles at this time. Nevertheless, Wicksy Daisy Candle Co. wants to offer the finest, healthiest products as possible and we choose NOT to use any Phthalates in our products as a safety precaution keeping with our strict quality control standards as an eco-friendly company.
What is a Lead Free, Cotton Wick?
One of the main concerns over candles is the wick. Different wicks are used for different purposes and they can be divided into two main categories: cored and non-cored wicks. Non-cored wicks are usually made of a braided or twisted cotton and considered the safest to burn.
Cored wicks are usually made of cotton around a paper or metal core. Zinc, tin, and lead are standard compounds used in its composition. Burning candles with lead-cored wicks is now known to cause lead poisoning, and there are similar concerns about zinc-cored wicks. In 1974, the National Candle Association of the U.S. voluntarily stopped using lead-cored wicks because of risks with airborne lead. Unfortunately, many countries outside of North America still produce candles using dangerous wicks.
Be aware that many candle manufacturers make claims for their candles or waxes that can’t be substantiated or are untrue. No candle is “soot-free” because combustion causes soot; however, beeswax and soy wax don’t produce sticky, black, petroleum-based soot.
Choosing Safe Candles:
Buy candles from trusted countries. Imported candles often come from countries where they employ chemicals no longer used in North America because of health concerns. Beware of certain candles that are less expensive since you often get what you pay for.
Why not Paraffin Wax?
Again, we've done our research and it is our strong opinion that soy wax is a safer alternative to many well known candle companies out there that use paraffin wax or paraffin blends. Stearic acid was once the only additive available for paraffin candles and is derived from either animal fat or palm oil. It is now often replaced with Vybar, a polymer which raises the melting point of paraffin, allows scents and colors to blend evenly in the wax, and gives the paraffin some of the qualities of more expensive waxes, such as soy, allowing candle makers to charge more for a cheap candle.
