All-Natural Ingredients + 100% ALWAYS Soy Wax
DISCOLORATION | FROSTING
Since we do not use any additives to our candles + only natural ingredients, any candle product with vanilla fragrance will discolor in direct sunlight over time. "Frosting" can occur with any colored soy candle as it interacts with different temperatures.
Another attribute to natural soy candles are occasional "wet" spots. These wet spots are due to the shrinking of wax due to temperature changes. These spots don't effect the pour + quality of the candle, it's just a simple side effect of soy candles + shipping.
HAND-BLEND | HAND-POURED
Over 80% of our fragrances are hand blend in-house, that means you won't find the same scents elsewhere. We also hand pour all of candle products, some candles may have a little more wax than others - your customers just get a little bonus!
Processing + Shipping
We are still a very small business in that there are only 3 of us - Alex, Sam + Sherrie. We hand pour + label every candle product at the time of order processing, we don't pull from a stockpile. During the candle seasons - Fall + Winter - it can take us up to a month to complete an order. We understand this seems like a long wait time, we try our very best! We do not offer the opportunity to jump ahead in order, it is first come + first serve to maintain fairness.
We ship all products via FedEx for a flat rate of 15% of an order. The reason being,
candles are heavy and require extra care when shipping to ensure nothing breaks.
We do not make any profit on shipping costs. We do offer local pick-up at our shop in Indiana at no cost.
UPDATED 10/20/2021 : Effective until 12/31/21, shipping will be 18% of a total order as FedEx has increased their shipping - by more than expected - for the holidays.
We hope you all understand. Thank you!
returns + exchanges
DAMAGED RETURNS : Sometimes during shipment, things do get damaged - may it get wet, dropped, etc. - so please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know as soon as possible! We want to get any defective productive exchanged as soon as possible. We do not accept returns based upon vanilla discoloration, frosting or "wet" spots as these occur naturally and there is no way to prevent them. If you do not wish to have them replaced, your Cedar Creek Candles account will be credit the total for these items minimize the cost of shipping. Your account will be credit once we've received defective products. Since our items are handmade, we do not offer cash refunds.

of placing your order if you'd like to cancel or make any modifications any orders. We unfortunately do not offer refunds for cancelled orders after 72 hours.
Substitutions + BACK ORDERS
SUBSTITUTIONS : We try to avoid this at all costs! If we have to substitute a jar or lid finish, we will contact you first! For example, our Coffee House candles are traditionally made in Amber tumblers and Mandles are traditionally made in the Black tumblers. If we're out of the Black tumblers, but still order a Mandle scent we'll contact you to see if you'd like a different finish of jar - i.e. clear or amber. If you'd like to wait until a certain finish is back in stock, we'll backorder that item until it's available for shipment. Please note, we'll give our best estimate of when it might be available again + keep you updated with any changes!
BACK ORDERS : We think just about everyone understands the headaches of backordered items, especially now. In the case any item is backordered, we will try our best to fulfil them in a timely manner. If a backorder item is taking longer than expected, we'll reach out to either a) refund you for these items; b) credit your account for a further purchase; or c) keep you in line for when a backorder material is back in stock!
