Shipping & Order Information

Questions about ordering online, shipping, in-store pickup, and damaged/wrong orders.

Can I send my order as a gift?

Absolutely! Any of our candles make a fantastic gift on their own, but we do not currently include gift notes in orders. Please note: all shipments include Kalamazoo Candle Company’s return address on the exterior shipping package. 

How do I track my order?

Once your order is shipped you'll receive an email or text with tracking information. If for some reason you do not get that message you can also find this information on your customer account page.

How long will my order take to arrive?

All orders are shipped within 3 days. We usually get them out within 1 business day but sometimes it takes an extra day or two when we run sales or around holidays.

Once your order ships it will take 1-3 days to arrive to you depending on how far from Kalamazoo, MI you are.

Which carrier does Kalamazoo Candle use?

We use UPS for all orders. By using UPS rather than USPS or FedEx orders generally arrive 1-2 days faster and less damage.

What do I do if I receive the wrong or broken candle?

Contact Customer Service in the above form. Include your name and order number, as well as a description of the damage. If you could include a photo of the broken candle, that would be great! If you have received an incorrect item, please note what item is missing from your order.

I'm trying to find one of your fragrances but can't find it.

Some of our fragrances are seasonal, meaning they are only available during certain times of the year. Some of our fragrances have retired, meaning they are no longer currently offered.

About our Candles

More detailed information about our candles, their ingredients, and get the most value from them.

What ingredients are used in your candles?

Our candles are made with 100% natural soy wax, a blend of phthalate-free fragrance oils, zero added dyes or toxins, and a paper-core cotton wick. They are California Proposition 65 compliant and free of all harmful chemicals listed.

Are your candles super fragrant?

We strive to craft a candle that produces a scent that compliments a room rather than overpowers it. The size of the room you are burning it in will also be a factor; however, we design our fragrance to fill an average size room.

Are your candles vegan?

While we do not use anything derived from animals in any way shape or form, our products have not been officially certified as vegan. 

Where are your candles made?

Every Kalamazoo Candle is crafted by hand in Kalamazoo, MI USA by our amazingly dedicated team of candle makers.

Do you use essential oils?

While our fragrances include essential oils, our fragrances are created using a blend of fragrance oils and essential oils. The use of fragrance oils tremendously increases the number of raw materials to which we have access, allowing consistency in product quality, as well as increased shelf life. The fragrance oils we use are phthalate-free and free from any ingredient listed inCalifornia's Prop 65. No bad stuff!

Did you know: If we used 100% essential oil it would take over 10,000lbs of roses to create enough Essential Oil for 20 candles!

Will your candles produce soot or smoke?

We design all of our candles to perform well in your home. If you follow ourCandle Burning Tips, then you should not see soot or smoke. Remember to trim the wick to 1/4” prior to lighting, keep the candle away from windy areas, and dip your wick to extinguish it.

Are soy candles safe for people with soy allergies?

Yes! Soy wax is very non-reactive and even though someone may be allergic to soy in foods, in order for the allergy to take place, the soy must be digested to enter the bloodstream. If it's burned, the protein chains are broken up and are no longer the same molecules that could cause the allergy. 

How long will my candle last?

If you follow our Candle Burning Tips, you’ll get the longest possible burn. Our candles last up to twice as long as many candles you might find in big-box stores. For specific burn times please visit the product page of a candle.

Do your wicks contain lead or zinc?

No, all of our wicks are metal-free! We use paper-core and 100% cotton wicks.

Is there a "right" way to burn a candle?

Yes! Follow theCandle Burning Tipsto get the best burn experience from your candle.
