About

Our products are always made with environmentalism in mind using vegan, nontoxic, cruelty-free ingredients. Transparency is important to us, so without further ado, here are the details:  


Norden Home uses an FDA approved blend of coconut and apricot waxes that come from renewable sources. Coconuts are considered a sustainable crop with a low environmental impact. Growing coconuts does not require pesticides or herbicides and coconuts are harvested by hand. The wax is derived from cold-pressing coconut meat (just like coconut oil) and then undergoes a hydrogenation process. The result is a creamy white wax that has a clean, even burn and excellent fragrance throw. Why apricots? Our candles contain a small amount of apricot wax, which is made from the oil extracted from the apricot kernel. With a low carbon and water footprint, apricots are also considered a sustainable crop. The apricot wax allows for a higher fragrance load (making your candles have a strong scent) and has a clean burn. Our wax is vegan and free of toxins, phthalates, and parabens.


Human beings can distinguish more than a trillion different smells (yes, we mean trillion). Scents have been proven to be woven together with long-term memories and generate an emotional response, so it is unsurprising that we develop attachments to specific fragrances. Not everyone receives fragrances in the same way, which makes candle-making enjoyable and ever-evolving.

Our unique fragrances use a combination of fragrance oils and pure essential oils to create sophisticated and immersive scents. The oils consist of both synthetic and natural ingredients. Keep in mind: natural does not mean non-toxic. All fragrances have been tested for safety and toxicity. The safety of scented candles is backed by years of research and testing along with a history of safe use. As always, our fragrances are vegan, cruelty-free, and free of toxins, phthalates, and parabens.


When it comes to packaging, our focus is environmentalism. That means using as few materials as possible and ensuring that the materials we do use are, at the very least, recyclable. How do you recycle your packaging after your candle is delivered? Drop the whole box, shipping label, shipping tape and all into a recycling bin. It’s that easy. We have ensured that all materials are 100% recyclable. Simply put - We’re proud of the way we ship. Along with being recyclable, our shipping boxes have custom inserts that ensure your candle stays snug in transit, which means there is no need for bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or any other void fill.  We use kraft paper tape that is made from 50% post-consumer recycled paper, does not contain fiberglass reinforcement, and is recyclable and compostable. The shipping labels (and your packing slip) are made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper and are 100% recyclable.


Your candle’s wick is constructed from natural flat cotton threads interwoven with paper threads and produces a consistent flame, ensuring an even burn. Our wicks are lead and zinc free and coated with a natural wax that generates a clean burn.

Trimming your wick is the most important part of caring for you candle. Before you burn your candle, always make sure the wick is trimmed to 1/8”. This will reduce sooting and extend the life of your candle.
