"Nomad for Life" Scented Candle (Canada)
Our signature candles are a collaboration between WanderlustStuff and a sustainable Canadian candle maker. They're hand poured, made with 100% natural soy wax and use natural essential oils free of chemicals. Each candle has it's own signature wanderlust-like scent and travel inspired quote that's meant to have you daydreaming, seeing and smelling the aromas of your next adventure.
"A nomad I will remain for life, in love with distant and chartered places" Quote by Isabelle Eberhardt
Isabelle Wilhelmine Marie Eberhardt (1877 – 1904) was a Swiss explorer and author. As a teenager, Eberhardt, educated in Switzerland by her father, published short stories under a male Pseudonym. She became interested in North Africa and was considered a proficient writer on the subject despite learning about the region only through correspondence.

The travel quote by Isabelle Eberhart is one for lingering travel lovers... Those who dream of their next adventure on a continual basis. Makes a great gift for your fellow travel loving friend or next hostess gift.

The soybeans used to make these are 100% pure soy wax grown by North American farmers. They are a renewable resource, plant based and cruelty free. Soy burns twice as long as paraffin so you get to enjoy this candle for a long time.
All of our essential oil & naturally derived fragrance oils are created to be free of all the yucky “P” things like parabens, phosphates & phthalates.
All natural fiber wicks are usually self trimming as the candle burns. These cotton wicks are lead free and clean burning.
Our candles have memories - for first use, let the candle burn until the wax melts to the outer edge of the container. This ensures you get the cleanest and best burn time.
You don’t need to trim the wick for the first burn, but please remember to trim your wick before each consecutive burn should you start to see a black build up starting. No one likes an unkept wick. ¼” long is perfect if trimming is required.
Sometimes a black ‘mushroom’ will appear on the wick. This is carbon and not a toxic substance. You can trim it off once the candle is cool and re-light. If soot has collected on the glass you can clean it off with a damp paper towel. Wait for the glass to cool! Shine on friends.
8oz and up candles are perfect for an area of about 400 sq ft.
There are lots of ways you can re-use empty candle containers! Glass jars can be repurposed for kitchen and bathroom use, travel tins are still great to use on the road for your vitamins or bobby pins.
