Frequently asked questions

IS GYPSY LOKAL ORGANIC/NATURAL?


Organic is a term used in relation to food, to identify food that is free of chemical fertilisers, genetic-modification and additives such as preservatives and colorings. The ingredients in our products are all naturally-occurring and naturally derived from premium, traceable sources. This also means that the list of ingredients used in our products are easily read and identified in the natural world. Gypsy Lokal's source’s guarantee clean ingredients as our products do not consisit of parabens, fillers, artificial colourants and harmful fragrances. However, high grade fragrance that is present is ONLY in our Gypsy Collection and our Crystal Stone Collection. Organic essential oils are present in all candles.




WHAT CANDLES ARE BEST FOR ALLERGIES/SCENT SENSITVITIES?


Short answer is, all of our collections are great for sensitivities. Naturally, beeswax and coconut wax do not give off strong aromas while we make sure not to put any harmful ingredients into your candles. However, our Lokal Collection is Carolina beeswax blended with organic coconut oil and organic essential oils which is the cleanest of the clean burn. We also offer an unscented candle that is just natural pure honey aroma. Beeswax is known for air purification to keep from harmful pollutants floating around, which is why we love this wax! *Candles to stay away from: Paraffin Wax (derived from petroleum).

WHAT WAX DOES GYPSY LOKAL USE IN THEIR CANDLES?


Gypsy Lokal uses 2 waxes. The first wax we use is Lokal Carolina beeswax. We pick it up locally from a North Carolina beefarm that is ethically conscience and sustainably sourced. Our second wax we use in our candles is a coconut wax blend. The coconut wax is blended with beeswax which are both naturally derived and sustainably sourced. Both waxes are clean and do not carry any harmful toxins.




WHY IS YOUR PRICING SOMEWHAT HIGHER THAN OTHERS?


Plain and simple...we use clean wax. The better the ingredients, the better the product. We know exactly where our wax is coming from, eh, hum...a local beefarm up the road (not from Amazon). Beeswax is the best wax in our opinion. It's pricey, but so worth it! Always giving you clean ingredients and always giving you a clean burn!
