  • Products and Ordering: The Shop opens periodically for two types of ordering, Ready-to-Ship (RTS) and Pre-Order:
     
    - Ready-to-Ship (RTS): RTS products are ready for shipping within approximately 1 to 7 business days (average is 3 business days).
     
    - Pre-Order: Items available during a Pre-Order can range from all scents in the Scent List and all shapes that we offer, to a limited number of scents in a limited selection of shapes. For example, of the last three Pre-Orders, one was for the entire product offering; all scents in all shapes. Another was for all scents but in Shot Cup shape only. The most recent was for approximately 100 of my 375 scents, and in limited shapes; Shot Cups, Blocks, Mini-Cakes, and Baby Bundt Cakes. Before finalizing what will be offered in any limited Pre-Order, I often conduct polls in my Facebook group where group members can voice what products and shapes they would like to see offered.The Turn-Around-Time (TAT) for Pre-Orders is posted in the top banner on the Destination:WAX Home Page. The most recent had a TAT of 5 to 30 business days. Sign up for the Newsletter at the bottom of the Destination:WAX Home Page to be notified of RTS and Pre-Order details. Join our Facebook Group to participate in scent request polls for RTS Restocks, Pre-Orders, and for giveaways!

     
  • Order Issues/Returns/Exchanges: If the product you received is not what you ordered, please email us at info@destinationwax.com within seven days of receiving your package.  Include a clear photograph of your received items with the product labels clearly visible. We will do all we can to make your order right. The perception of scent is subjective, as is scent strength, therefore, wax melts cannot be returned or exchanged.

Giving Back: Destination:WAX donates 5% of all gross sales to non-profit organizations, choosing a different one each month:

  • Partners in Health provides healthcare in the poorest areas of developing countries and tries to remove barriers to maintaining good health, such as dirty water or a lack of food, and to strengthen the rights of the poor. The organization became widely known from the book, “Mountains Beyond Mountains” by Tracy Kidder.  If you haven’t read the book, we highly recommend it!  http://www.pih.org/
  • Kiva connects people through lending to alleviate poverty. We choose loans that go to small businesses. https://www.kiva.org/ 
  • Mercy Corps is a disaster relief agency that also helps rebuild the affected communities. https://www.mercycorps.org/
  • The Breast Cancer Research Foundation provides funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis, and survivorship.  
  • Other organizations are chosen at various times to respond to current events (such as the Houston Food Bank in the wake of Hurricane Harvey) and at the suggestions of customers and our Facebook Group members. Each month’s donation is posted in our Facebook Group.

 

 Our Wax: 

  • Our wax is a proprietary blend of paraffin and soy waxes, formulated for exceptional throw, longevity, and trueness of scent. We hand pour in small batches to ensure the highest quality in our products.
  • Our wax has been tested in and throws well in a variety of warmers including hot plates (15, 18, 20, and 24 watts), CandleAires, ScentSationals and Scentsy bulb warmers (25 and 40 watts), Scentsy bulb plug-ins (15 watts) for powder rooms, and tea light warmers.  For most rooms, 24-watt hot plate warmers work great.
  • All wax is packaged in polypropylene; the inner liner of the Kraft bakery bags is polypropylene. Store wax in original packaging or in a sealed polypropylene bag.
  • Listed product weight is finished weight and is approximate; actual weight will vary but is typically more than the listed minimum.
  • Cure Time: Cure time of two to four weeks after pour date is recommended. If a longer cure time for a certain scent is recommended, it will be noted on the Wax Scent List. Most vanilla scents benefit from a longer cure time of around 4 weeks or longer.

 General Information about Wax Melts / Wickless Scented Candles:

Melting Wax Melts: To prevent fire or injury: Remove packaging before use. Use only in tea-light warmers or UL listed electric warmers approved for wax melts. Read and follow all instructions provided with your warmer. Place wax melts in a warmer. Do not add water, oil, or anything else. If using a tea light warmer, there should be at least two inches between the flame and the underside of the warmer dish. If your tea light warmer does not have a two-inch clearance, do not use it. Do not leave warmers unattended while in use. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Do not melt on stove top or in non-approved appliances. Use only in well-ventilated areas away from flammable objects.

For most warmers, we recommend using 0.75 ounces of wax (1/2 Shot Cup or one Block). Even better is two warmers per room - and two warmers with wax split between them works better than a large amount of wax (1.5 to 2 ounces for example) in one warmer. Too much wax in a warmer may not get hot enough to throw well. If your warmer has a wide dish, then 1 Shot Cup or 2 Blocks will also work well.  It is easy to cut the wax with a blunt knife or a soap/wax cutter. For small powder rooms, a wall plug-in warmer with about 0.5 to .75 ounces of wax works great. Scent strength may decrease in rooms with open windows and/or running air conditioning and/or ceiling fans.

Removing Wax from Warmers:  If your warmer has a removable dish, allow wax to cool completely and harden. Place the dish with the cooled wax into the freezer.  After about 15 minutes, the wax can be pushed out of the dish by pushing down at one edge with a blunt knife. Sometimes just tipping the dish over will be enough for the cold wax to slide out of the dish on its own. If your warmer does not have a removable dish, do not let the wax cool and solidify. Use a cotton ball or some wadded-up bathroom tissue to soak up the liquid wax and throw it away. Be careful, the wax will still be hot to the touch. Don’t become a statistic in the world of melted wax. Wipe out any remaining wax with more tissue.

Soap Information:

Soaps are occasionally offered as RTS items.

Our handmade soaps are primarily made from natural, moisture-rich vegetable oils. They contain no animal byproducts, alcohols, chemical hardeners, detergents, phthalates, sulfates, or sugar solutions.  The Clear Soap is our only soap that contains a surfactant. These soaps are not elaborate blends of chemicals and detergents, which can be both harsh on your skin and have a negative environmental impact due to manufacturing waste and their limited biodegradability.

These soaps rinse clean, leaving behind little to no moisturizing oils.

To get the best lather, use with a wet bath pouf or washcloth! 

 ~~ Soaps are handmade, therefore colors, shapes, designs, and weights may vary from bar to bar and may be different from what is shown online. The drop down list includes currently available soaps and the general color of your soap. Av soap, Clear Soap, Honeybee Soap, HSO soap, and Shaving Soap somewhat translucent or shimmery colors.

Bar Size:  All soaps except Slices are listed as approximate fluid ounces (volume), not in finished weight. Slices are listed as approximate finished weight.

Fragrances: Most of our soaps are scented with fragrance oils (all phthalate-free) and/or essential oils. Soaps labeled, “Simple”, have no added fragrance. Honeybee Simple Soaps have no added fragrance, however, they will naturally have a light scent of honey.

Colors: Most of our soaps contain cosmetic grade colorants. These include micas, clays, pigments, plant-derived colorants, activated charcoal, coconut carbon powder, and glitters. Colors may be different from what is shown online and can vary from bar to bar. Colors may change as the bar gets used.  Some soaps have mica and/or glitter on their surface; this mica and/or glitter will wash off after a few uses and the bar will have more lather after that. Although the lather on all bars is nearly always light in color, we recommend that you do not use white or light-colored cloths or towels with soaps of dark or rich colors. Soaps labeled, “Simple” have no added colorants.

Loofah, Oatmeal, Poppy Seeds, Pumice, and Salts: Soaps containing loofah, ground oatmeal, poppy seeds, pumice,  and/or salts should not be used on the face or on sensitive or damaged skin.

Packaging: Most bars are partially shrink-wrapped in polypropylene and then sealed in a polypropylene bag so the packaging may look clunky. This is necessary to protect the soaps in the mail. Use a sharp scissors to carefully cut off the polypropylene shrink wrap. Keep soaps sealed in their original packaging or sealed in a polypropylene bag until ready to use.

 Shelf Life and Storage:  Although the soaps do not have an indefinite shelf life, their lathering and cleansing qualities will remain for at least a year.  After a time, however, appearance and colors may change, fragrances may fade, and soaps may shrink slightly as they begin to lose moisture. Soaps may develop a translucent or white “glycerin dew”, which is beads of water being drawn from the air onto the soap surface. If this happens, you can simply use the soap or place it in the sun until the beads evaporate or wipe with a clean cloth. Do not let soaps sit in water; they will last longer if stored on a self-draining dish or on a soap-saver/soap-lift.

 

We cannot be held responsible for allergic reactions or conditions due to use of our products. If you have known allergies, check product label and associated ingredient information above before using.  For people with sensitive skin, test products on a small area to see if you have a reaction.
