Q. Can I receive a Candle with no treasure  in it?

A. We are 100% sure there is a treasure in every candle. It is impossible for there to be NO Treasure.. All of the steps below are based on jewelry being present in the product.  If the treasure was missing, the next stage could not be completed

Our entire process for making the candle involves a treasure  first being put in the jar. All of the treasures are placed by hand by us. Than we pour the candle by hand, After the candle is cured we than place the back label over the TREASURE. If the treasure is not present we do not put it for sale. We take several steps to ensure a treasure in the candle.

Did you know, when a candle has been burned, the walls of the jar have stains from the flame (can be easily wiped off)?  But every picture we receive of "no treasure, the jars are completely wiped clean, presumably to hide where the foil and glue were removed, leaving an obvious void of the stains from the burning flame. 

Q. My treasure is broken what do I do?

A. We do not replace jewelry that has been dug out of the candle, If you let your candle burn down far enough to remove it without force, it will not break. Our jewelry is very delicate and if you remove it with force, it will damage the piece. If you contact us for a defective piece of jewelry please send a photo of the candle and jewelry to see if it is defective from the supplier. Sometimes jewelry does come defective but we do inspect it every time we put them in, but occasionally it can be missed.

A. If your piece is damaged by defect, please return the treasure to Hidden Treasure Candles, 30 East 2nd Street. Hummelstown Pa 17036 . Send a note with order number and we can have it replaced. All replacements must be sent back to us to qualify for a new piece

Q. What size are your candles?

A.* Hidden Treasure candles (jewelry) 20 oz soy wax

   * Hidden Treasure Cash minis candles 12 0z soy wax

   * Mega Cash Candles 34 oz soy wax candles


Q. I can not smell my candle?

There are many reasons you might not be smelling your candles. Here are a few of them: 

The most common reason candles seem to lose their smell is because of something called Olfactory Fatigue. This is where your nose becomes so used to a smell, it becomes desensitized to it. This is a temporary, normal thing that happens. It inhibits your nose from being able to distinguish a particular odor after it's been around it a long time.

For example, when you walk into a flower shop you might be overwhelmed by all the floral scents, but if you stay in there for a long time, the smell will not be as noticeable. 
After long exposures to a candle scent your awareness of the odor normally fades to the point where the smell is not perceptible or is much weaker. After leaving the area, the sensitivity is restored with time. (You might have seen perfume counters that have containers of coffee beans, which is to "reset" your nose because of this exact same issue!)

Try walking out of the room for a period of time and reentering it, or snuffing the candle, letting it cool, and lighting it again. Please note that our candles should not be burned for more than four or five hours at a time as per their warning labels. 

Other culprits for a candle not smelling deal with the ventilation system in homes, or air filtering systems. If a candle is placed under an intake vent, the scent will be pulled in with the air. If you have any sort of air filters in your home, the scent could be caught in those as well.
