All the answers!
I love my new candle! Any tips?
Recommended burn time is 3-4 hours max. Trim the wick to 1/4" before lighting. For best results, allow the wax to melt to the edges before extinguishing to prevent tunneling. Never leave candles unattented and burn on a level, fire resistant surface. Keep out of reach from children and pets.
Are all of your candles really eco-friendly?
Of course! We use 100% recycled glass jars, american-grown pure soy wax, cotton wicks, phthalate-free, non-toxic fragrance oils which are also Prop 65 compliant. Our labels are made out of 100% recycled kraft paper. All marketing materials and shipping packaging are also 100% recycled.
Soy wax over Paraffin wax? Why?
Soy is a natural, biodegradable, vegan, sustainable resource grown in the US to support American suppliers. It burns cleaner and is non-toxic which is better for your health and the health of those around you. Paraffin wax is made out of petroleum oil which releases carcinogens and toxins into your home while soy is evironmentally friendly.
Are all of your scents 100% phthalate free?
Absolutely! We pride ourselves on creating candles that only use phthalate free, non-toxic oils that are derived from natural ingredients without synthetic chemicals.
Why should I choose eco-friendly candles?
Most candles are made with petroleum-based paraffin wax, use lead-filled wicks and fill them with synthetic chemical fragrance oils which fill your home with toxins and carcinogens. Our products are all non-toxic and use recycled materials to keep your body and Mother Earth happy!

Not at this time, but hopefully in the near future.
What is Keystone Inspired?
As much as we love Keystone, Colorado, Keystone Inspired is named from Lake Keystone in Odessa, Florida. Britt's grandparents lived here when she was a child and most weekends were spent with them on the water. Our brand was created to celebrate the simplicity of a life inspired by the outdoors. Using only basic elements, we mindfully handcraft all products with our love of nature and the environment in mind.
What about packaging? Is that recycled also?
Yes! Always yes! Our labels and packaging are all printed on 100% recycled paper. All boxes, bags and tissue paper are 100% recycled - even our tape is biodegradable! All candle toppers on glass jars are made out of seeded paper which grow into wildflowers. We take the environment seriously and do what we can to reduce waste.
Who designs all of your packaging?
Icons are hand drawn by one of our very best friends Ciara (IG - @ciarasandborg) and designs for labels and packaging are created by our owner and candlemaker, Britt.
What is a seeded paper topper?
When we first started, we didn't have boxes and chose seeded paper as our topper. The circular topper can be planted in soil and when the paper biogegrades the seeds are left to grow wildflowers.
