A Sticky Subject
Wax Poetic

Have you ever noticed how some candles seem to emit fragrance effortlessly, while others leave you straining to catch a whiff? The type of wax used plays a significant role in this experience. Different waxes have distinct strengths and weaknesses. At Bougie Funk, we're dedicated to understanding and optimizing these properties. While some may rely on anecdotal advice from local social media influencers and mom blogs, we prefer to base our decisions on the solid foundation of scientific knowledge.

"For the unscented candles it can be determined that the fuels palm, paraffin, soy and stearin behave very similarly in terms of emissions. No individual wax was shown to have a consistently better emission profile than the others."

We've opted for a combination of botanical and mineral waxes, harnessing the unique qualities of both types. Our goal is to provide you with full transparency about your purchase, empowering you to make a choice that aligns with your preferences.

Our customers appreciate how a single candle can effortlessly infuse their entire living space with delightful fragrances.
