Candles add so much to our lives - light, function and ambiance.  Burning the right candle for the right occasion is as simple as knowing a little about the materials used to make candles and how they perform.

Different wax burns at different rates.  For example, a Paraffin Wax tea light will burn 4 - 4 1/2 hours and a Soy Wax tealight will burn  6 - 6 1/2 hours.  Wax votives will burn 15 hours.  Container candles will burn upwards  of 20 hours depending on the type of wax  and how  long they are burned each time they are lit.  Please follow burning guidelines for the best value from your candle.

Soy/EO candles are made with Soy wax and Essential Oils.  These Oils are the true essences of the plants and, in addition to the wonderful scents, may also add some aromatherapy benefits to your sensory enjoyment.

Some items may occasionally be out of stock and therefore orders may take longer to fill.  If time is a concern, please contact me.

If you don't see what you are looking for here, please contact me.  Custom orders are welcome.

I hope you enjoy your Millstream candles and trust that you will burn them safely -  Keep out of the reach of children and pets, out of drafts and on a heat safe surface.   Trim your wicks to 1/4 inch before lighting, and extinguish and trim again when the flame bounces and soot starts to accumulate.  Above all: Never leave a burning candle unattended!




"Just wanted you to know I am loving the Pink Grapefruit soap! Another favourite for my collection. Also, the ladies I gave soap to for Christmas are enjoying them as well."
