About Gift Goddess’ Products

If our supplier has a website, we usually post a link to it, so if you are looking for a particular product, please let us know and we will do our best to order it for you. None of the Gift Goddess' suppliers sell directly to the public.

Gift Goddess wants to be sure you receive medical attention when you need it, so please be sure that you do not rely solely on any “alternative” products or healing methods, but go see your doctor or medical practitioner for formal medical advice.

Gift Goddess' gel candles are safe and non toxic. The gel is made from a combination of food grade mineral oil and a poly resin which gels the mineral oil. The gel is melted, colour and safe scent are added and then we hand pour your candle. As with most things, the quality of the parts determines the quality of the whole, all of our gels are vibrantly coloured and richly scented evenly throughout, not just on the surface. We searched and searched and tested and tested until we made a candle that met our high expectations in order to provide you with the best and safest candle possible. Then we improved it! We use the only patented candle gel on the market, Penreco’s Versagel, in all of our container gel candles, and we use Arizona Chemical's UniClear to make our transparent freestanding gel pillar candles. Gift Goddess' gel candles will not melt in transit, or even the trunk of your car, nor will our wick slip over to the side of the container. The gel stays firm, the wick stays put, and the fragrance is long lasting, many candles still throwing scent over two years later. We have now embedded a glass tealight holder in the gel, making these gels even safer and easier to care for! They will last forever and their beauty will not diminish with use.

In accordance with the Hazardous Products Act, we do not use leaded wicks, instead, we use a cotton wick with extra tension fibers added for rigidity, and if you keep the wick trimmed to just under ¼", the wick will consume itself completely and not fall into the candle. ALL of our candles, components and containers are tested extensively long before we offer them for sale to you. Gel candles themselves do not explode, however, inappropriate glassware can break as a result of the extreme heat generated by the candle flame, which is why we use only quality, first run, glassware. Poor manufacturing practices, such as using scents and colours which were not designed for use in gel, can cause potentially dangerous flare ups and air bubbles and flaws in cheap or recycled glass can cause breakage due to the heat. We use only quality ingredients meant for use in gel, our glassware can easily withstand heat of up to 1,700o F and we test, test, test.

Gel candles have been recalled, but not ours – and they never will be. By using quality gel designed for this purpose, scents specifically made for use in gel, ensuring they are properly combined before pouring AND the way that our wicks cannot come into contact with the glass, ours are truly well made candles, we guarantee it.

Bubbles in candle gel cause up to 40% more light to be thrown from the candle. They do not indicate poor quality gel or a poorly made candle. Gift Goddess can control, to some degree, the number of bubbles in the wine glass gels making the candle more resemble a true glass of wine. We make everything from a flat chardonnay to bubbly champagne.

Embedding objects in candles is pretty, but for your safety, we only use non flammable embeds. Also, any objects that we do embed are kept safely away from embedded decorations because the candle is in its own glass holder, away from embeds. If you own or use a candle with embeds which are becoming exposed in the melted pool of wax, extinguish the flame, wait for the wax to cool and gently remove the embedded object with tweezers or pliers so that it will not catch fire or break or topple over onto the wick, pushing the wick too close to the side.

Gift Goddess is the only gel candle manufacturer (that we're aware of) that will provide you with gel candle cleaning and repair instructions for your gel candle after your nephew (or uncle!) pokes his fingers into it! Gift Goddess offers maximum candle enjoyment, simply follow our usage guidelines and care instructions.
