50% Cocktail. 50% Candle. 100% Nebraska made.

Hand poured by the crew at Handlebend and 168 Candles Studio. 


From Regan at 168,
At 168 candles studio we individually hand - pour each candle using all natural, plant-based soy wax free of paraffin for both clean and long lasting burn. The fragrance oil used to scent our candles are free of toxic chemicals like parabens and phthalate, commonly found in mass-produced factory candles. This also ensures a clean burn especially safe for children and pets. Our soft-crackling wood wicks are fsc-certified. Meaning that they have been harvested from forests that meet the highest environmental and social standards. we are committed to using sustainable, post-consumer recycled, and biodegradable packing materials to keep our carbon footprints to a minimum.


Every candle from 168 Candles Studio is handmade with care.
To enjoy your candle fully, please follow these tips:

Burn your candle for 3-4 hours each burn.
Always allow the melted wax to reach the edge of the container
Trim your wick before each use.
Use a wick trimmer or pinch the top burnt section with your fingers to make a short and level wick.
Always keep your wick trimmed to ¼’
