Are your products Vegan Friendly?
YES! At Bird's Creations we are committed to providing you with high quality, vegan friendly products. We take time to scout out and source from ingredient suppliers who do not employ animal testing, and specially craft each recipe with only plant based ingredients, never animal! From out oils and butters, to our scents and sugar, we do not use animal or animal byproduct ingredients. We are currently working towards obtaining vegan certification for all of our products.

Sustainability is a big part of who we are. We ask that you help us keep our jars out of landfills. To help with this, we offer a jar return policy. Bring your empty jars back to our store front, located at 277 Main Street, Cornwall, NY, and you will receive a $2 credit towards your next candle purchase.
Jar returns are applied to candle purchases only. Limit 1 jar credit per candle purchased. Multiple credits cannot be applied to one candle purchase.

How long do your candles last?
Burn times of a candle vary depending on a number of factors, including their wax. Unlike petroleum derived paraffin candles, soy candles last longer and burn cleaner. This is because soy wax is made from a natural vegetable wax, soy candles can burn for nearly twice a long as a paraffin candle. This means that now only better for your home, but give you more for your money. Our soy candles are made with 100% pure, natural soy wax, that contains no hardening agents, or other wax additives - just our scents and colors. The burn time of our candles generally last anywhere from 42 to 58 hours, depending on how you are burning your candle. Properly burning your candle will lengthen the life of your candle. See our blog post on "How To Burn a Candle" for more information on how to properly burn a candle.
