we stand with ukraine

happening now

We, at 'Sota Cracklers, condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine.  Each day we read yet another frightening news story that just breaks our hearts!  And it feels hard wanting to help those resilient people yet being so far away. We thought about making a special candle and then donating a portion of the proceeds, but to be honest, it felt a little "sale-sy" and we'd really rather not be a middle-man, reducing the donation dollars actually reaching those in need of help.  So instead we're posting links to a few very great organizations that are making a difference:  UNICEFUkraine Red Cross, &  The International Rescue Committee.

Please consider donating to one of these worthy organizations!  Let’s support the people of Ukraine, together!

Love Ukraine

Don't forget to
trim your wick!

every time

Our #1 candle tip is this: TRIM YOUR WICK

After each burn, once the wax has cooled, it's important to remove the black crumbling ash before relighting.  You can use a wick trimmer, a scissors, or even just pinch off as much as you can with your fingers.  Removing the excess ash makes relighting easier, keeps the flame at a safe height, and prevents smoking of the jar.  The wax also burns more efficiently so your candle will last longer too!  Now that's advice we can all get behind!

Want a fancy wick trimmer like the one in the photo?  We've got you covered here.

About Us

What's in a name?

'Sota Cracklers!  It's a terrible, terrible pun... so of course we went with it!  Actually the name of our made-in-Minnesota candles is partly derived from the crackling wooden wicks we use!  We're also BIG fans of Minnesota & proud to call the state our home!  That's why our scents are named after places & things that are uniquely Minnesotan, like our piney Northwoods scent, or our cheeky Mosquito Bite scent made with citronella & mint.


We value quality, craftsmanship, & beautiful design.  We strive to bring you a bit of nature with our crackling wood wicks, set into naturally smoke-less soy wax candles, which fit brilliantly into any modern or traditional home decor.  Our wood wicks are responsibly sourced from US forests & our wax is also made from American grown soy beans.  All our candles are carefully poured by hand, in small batches, in our St. Paul home studio for your enjoyment.
