IRREVERENT SCENT FOR INTREPID SOULS


Luxuriously-scented soy wax candles, home + body products. Hand-poured in our studio in Omaha, Nebraska.

Sense of smell is so powerful. It can transport you to another time and place in an instant. Creating an environment that fully expresses who you are must involve all of the five senses - and smell is essential to that. Our products have a modern, minimal look and feel that will fit in any space. 

 

 

We stand behind our products and our products embody our beliefs.

We believe product design should be thoughtful and intentional. We believe home + body products should look good, smell amazing, last a long time, and be healthy for those using them. We use the highest quality, most ethical suppliers we can source, and strive to use only all-natural, organic ingredients wherever possible. If there is a greener, safer, more natural option available, we use it. We choose Leaping Bunny, Certified BCorp and MADE IN THE USA whenever available, and are proud to be an Omaha-based, small-batch maker. We intentionally design our products to be reusable, repurposable, refillable or at the very least recyclable. We know many people are sensitive to ingredients, scents and additives. We are happy to answer specific questions, provide ingredient detail, or create custom products to ensure user safety. Contact us to discuss your unique needs.

EXPLORE OUR PRODUCTS

While candles are our heart and soul, we offer other scented products, too. We know not everyone can (or should) have access to an open flame. We get it. We don’t want you to have to call the fire department (again), even if they are total babes. But you most definitely should still have access to enjoy the spectacular world of NOMAD scent experience!

PRODUCT INFO

Our candles are 100% soy wax. Because soy wax has a "memory" of each burn, it's SO iimportant to start your candle off right! Before each burn, trim your wick to ¼”. On the first burn, allow the wax melt pool to reach the edges of the jar. This usually takes about 2-3 hours, but may be longer for larger candles. Then extinguish your candle for at least 1 hour before burning again. This will help to prevent tunneling and give your candle a nice even burn. Never burn candles for more than 4 hours. Never leave a burning candle unattended or within reach of drafts, pets or small children. The candle jar or tin will be hot after burning, so allow wax to cool completely before handling. By following these steps your soy wax candle will give you a long, clean burn for hours! 

When your candle has about 1/2" of wax left, it's useful life has ended and it's time to repurpose that jar or tin. Just use a spoon to scoop out the remaining wax & wick, rinse with warm water and use an alcohol-soaked cottonball or cotton pad to clean out any leftover waxy residue. Then you can use your tin or jar for all kinds of other things! All jars & tins are lead-free and food safe. 

*Protip: the tins make great reusable containers for toddler & kiddo snacks on the go.

For the flameless #WAXLOVERS out there, we offer our wax melts, perfect for use in your favorite electric wax warmer. We are excited to now offer all of our signature scents in a Wax Melt form.
