*All "Made to Order" items (Baskets, Candles, Hangy Thingy's, Melts, etc.) are "Made to Order" and must be prepaid.
*Items that are shipped: I do my absolute best to make sure that your shipment will reach you in the best possible condition. Quite a few of my items cannot be replaced and are one of a kind items. Damaged items are not good for you and not good for business. Please notify me within 3 days of receiving your shipment if it arrived to you damaged; broken candles, broken warmers, broken home items (no discounted/discontinuing items). You will need to submit photos of the outside of the box or container you received your item(s) in. You will need to submit pictures of the damaged items. This is so that I can process a claim with the carrier if necessary.
*Claims/Refunds for damaged items will not be handled without photos AND a valid receipt/proof of purchase.
*Damage to Wax Melt cups can happen. It does not affect the integrity of the melt nor affect the way it will melt. Angela's Wax Melts will NOT REFUND your money for damaged wax melt containers.
*WAX WARMERS: All warmers are in good working condition, if not brand new and still in the box when I receive them and or you purchase them. I do not work for, endorse or sell for any company that makes wax warmers of any kind (electric or candle light). If a warmer is damaged upon shipping please see above. You have 3 days to submit your claim and you must provide pictures and a valid receipt/proof of purchase. Since I do not sell, endorse or work for any warmer company I cannot guarantee that I can replace the exact warmer that was broken/damaged. I can and will try to get an exact replacement. If an exact replacement cannot be found I will try to get you something similar or issue you a refund or credit. Situations will vary and may not all be handled the same.
*Partial money may be refunded for warmers that were part of a basket and or bundle deal. Money will not be refunded to you if the item was a "prize". A like prize may be substituted.

Wax Melts Specs:
Angela's Wax Melts, Wax Melts are approximately 1.1oz each. Each melt is approximately equal to 4 of the "square types". Melts are made with paraffin wax. I use the best quality fragrance oils I can find. Almost all of the fragrance oils used are phthalate free. If I do not like the way a fragrance is performing I will not continue to use it and will try and find a better option. I do not use essential oils for my products.

Made to Order Candles:
"Made to Order Candles" are made to order. You pick the container, you pick the scent and when applicable the color. Candles need to "cure" at least 2-3 days before they are ready for use. Please allow me 3 to 5 days to properly make and cure your candles. Orders with more than 3 candles may take longer. I will always advise you on how long your order should take when you place your order. Communication is key and quality and your satisfaction are my top priorities. Items are shipped as soon as possible. See "Refunds & Returns" above for more information. "Made to Order Candles", you may return it back to me but you may not get a refund as they were made per your instruction and some options are "one of a kind". Orders containing "Made to Order Candles" will not be started until payment has been received (unless other arrangements have been made).
Proper Candle Care:
NEVER leave a candle unattended.
Do not leave your candle within reach of pets or kids.
Do not burn your candle next to or on something that can easily catch fire.
Do not burn a candle that has been cracked or broken.
Keep the candle free of any debris.
Never burn a candle for longer than 4 hours. After 4 hours you should extinguish the flame and allow the wax to settle before trimming the wick and re-lighting. If you burn a candle for longer than 4 hours the wick will continue getting longer and burn with an unsafe flame that could cause blackening on the jar and overheating issues.
Do not pick up a jar after a recent burn. Allow it to cool for a few minutes before moving it as the jar may be hot.
Burn your candle for a minimum of one hour each time. Constant "short burns" could cause tunneling.
Keep your wick trimmed to about 1/4 inch above the wax level. Trim after each use.
Do not extinguish the flame with the lid or water.
You should stop use when the wax level reaches about 1/4 inch.
