All of our products are 100% natural but sometimes crop shortages, such
as the fruit or flowers needed to make our essential oils, can affect our stock level. If an ingredient suddenly becomes difficult to obtain, we will do what we can to find a sustainable alternative but occasionally we will need to place an item out of stock until an alternative is found. Terralite makes every effort to provide consistency across all of our products however the use of natural ingredients may cause variations from batch to batch.
Yes, we have a very strict policy to use only natural or organic ingredients. Every single product we make is 100% natural.
We also believe it is important to source sustainable ingredients that have the least impact on the environment, including materials used in product and packaging.

How we scent our candles
We only use pure, organic, or wildcrafted essential oils and plant extracts to scent our candles and products. To learn more about the ingredients we use, where they come from, and what plant part is used for the aromatic extraction, please visit our Botanical Blend Guide.
What do you mean by "Plant Extracts"?
To better understand how oils are extracted from plants, let’s take a closer look into the world of aromatic extracts!
Essential oils are commonly extracted using steam distillation, the process of placing whole plant material in a distillation machine and using steam to extract certain oils and aromatics from plants. Although essential oils are quite common, not all oils are extracted this way. Certain aromatic oils are extracted from plant material using CO2. CO2 extracts are more costly to produce than their essential oil counterpart, contain more plant constituents, and are considered a higher quality oil among expert perfumers. Although similar to essential oils, CO2 extracts are chemically different as they naturally contain more aromatic compounds.
Absolutes are another type of aromatic extracts that are extracted from plants using solvents, such as hexane. This method is used when a plant extract is unable to be extracted by steam distillation or CO2 extraction. We currently do not use absolutes as these specialty extracts are not oil-soluble. Absolutes are more often used by perfumers and diluted with alcohol to make high quality perfume. We only use essential oils and CO2 extracts, and about half of the oils we use are certified organic.
Just to clarify, we DO NOT use any “natural fragrances” or “fragrances infused with essential oils”. We never use any synthetic ingredients in any of our products.
Although our coconut wax is made from coconut oil, the smell of coconuts has been removed through a natural process. This allows us to create scented candles by blending unscented coconut wax with pure essential oils and plant extracts.
Even though our coconut wax is made using pure coconut oil, the raw oil goes through a process called hydrogenation which reduces the saturated fats and turns the liquid oil into a semi solid wax. Once an oil has gone through hydrogenation, it can no longer be called “organic” by USDA Organic standards. This applies to other types of waxes commonly found on the market including soy wax, palm wax, or other vegetable wax blends.
To our knowledge there are no certified organic candles on the market. The closest thing we have found is our patented wax blend for our tealights, made of GMO-free, food grade rice bran wax and fair trade certified organic coconut oil.
Our tealights are Fair Trade Certified by Fair Trade USA.
Place candle on temperature safe surface. For maximum burn time, burn candles long enough to form a melt pool across the top of the candle and burn no more than 4 hours at a time.
- Trim wick to 1/4” as needed.
- For maximum burn time, burn long enough to form a melt pool across the surface but no longer than 4 hours at a time.
- Keep wax free of debris.
- Avoid drafty areas.
Caution: Wax is hot when melted, do not touch. Always burn within sight. Keep away from things that catch fire. Keep away from children and pets. Neither seller nor manufacturer is responsible for misuse.
Our wicks are made without chemical additives and will sometimes exhibit normal wick behavior, such as forming a black mushroom head, which is a build up of carbon and can easily be corrected by blowing out the candle and trimming the wick to 1/4″.
We do not test our products on animals therefore we do not have any official reports to share regarding pet safety.
It is important to remember that every living creature may react differently to different natural ingredients. Although our products are made for humans and not pets, if your pet has sensitivities, we recommend that you use products responsibly and monitor your pets for any adverse reactions.
