About Us

Thank you for your interest in Dixieland DeLites Candle Co.

About five years ago, a large candle retailer discontinued my favorite scent.  I tried to find another retailer that carried something close, but with no luck.  I decided to try my hand at making my own and fell in love.  Over the last few years, I've experimented with several different products to finally come up with the products that are available to you today. I create all candles personally at home, where I hand-pour & scent each batch.

Order with confidence!

We only use soy wax in our candles and wax melts/tarts.  Not only is it a renewable resource, it burns cleaner and most importantly, supports the American farmer.  We also use cotton wicks - no metal wicks here!

Scented vs. Unscented

Scents are powerful generators of emotion and memory. A certain aroma can bring you back to winter holidays in the old country or a special day. Our extensive line of scented candles is sure to have a fragrance that will recall a special moment or create a new valuable memory.

Burning Safety

Always remember safety when burning candles, we recommend following these guidelines: 
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended!
  • Always burn a candle on a heat resistant surface.  Candle holders may become hot and damage furniture. 
  • Keep all burning candles away from children and pets.
  • Do not place candles near flammable objects.
  • Do not burn candles to the very bottom.

Candle Care

To get the most from your candles, we recommend following these guidelines:
  • Always keep the wick trimmed to 1/4"
  • Burning most candles no more than 3 to 4 hours at a time will help to increase the total burn time of the candle.
  • If a candle burns unevenly, it is usually caused by a draft.  Rotate the candle 90 degrees periodically to keep the burning uniform or move it to another location.
  • Burn container candles for 1 hour per inch of diameter. This allows the wax pool to cover the entire surface which also improves the scent throw and helps to extend the burning time.
