Sand | 9oz. California Element Candle



Imagine walking on a foggy early morning on the beach...

The wet sand smells salty and earthy. The air is damp and smells of rain.

The beach is covered in washed up wood and seaweed creating a distinct aroma that only the ocean/beach/sand can create. 

Unearth your senses with notes of dirt, beachwood, sea grass, and salt.


Often Wander’s California Element Candles are made with 100% natural soy wax, premium fragrance infused with essential oils, a BPA and lead free cork lid, and a crackling wooden wick in a 100% recycled glass container.

Clean and slow burning, these 9 ounce smooth and creamy soy candles have a 60 hour burn time.

Vegan, paraben-free, phthalates-free, sulfates-free, no synthetic dyes, cruelty-free, eco friendly.

Hand-poured in San Francisco and San Diego, CA.


What to know about wooden wicks:

Our wooden wicks are: Eco-friendly, clean-burning, made from FSC Certified Wood. FSC = Forest Stewardship Council who are endorsed by Greenpeace. These wood wicks are hand-crafted and grown in the USA.

How to care for your wooden wick:

Keep your wick trimmed. Trim the wooden wick before your first burn to 1/4 inch. Candles come pre-trimmed (no need to trim for your first burn).

However, any burn after that, we suggest using candle wick trimmers to trim the wood wick to 1/4 inch again before re-lighting.

If the wick is too long, it cannot absorb the wax and burn properly, and may result in a large flame which isn’t advised.

  1. Trim your wick when relighting the 2nd burn, and make sure to remove all charred wood from previous burns.
  2. Make sure to allow the wax to melt across the entire diameter of your candle on the first burn- this helps prevent tunneling or wasting wax on the sides of your candle.
  3. If you are experiencing a “low flame” don’t stress. This can happen with a wooden wick from time to time, but stick it out. The wick will continue to burn and the flame height will return.


**Important Candle Care:


Start by trimming the wick to 1/4 of an inch in length, every time you burn.


Do not let the flame burn over 1” high.


Never leave unattended or in reach of pets or children.


Always place on a temperature safe surface.


DO NOT burn near anything flammable!


For optimal results, on your first burn, let the entire surface pool before blowing me out, candle will burn evenly every time there after.
