black friday!

happening now!

It's time to start your holiday shopping and we've just added new candles to our e-shop!  

If you've been following us on social media you may have heard about the jar and lid shortages we've been facing.  As a result we don't have as many of our popular "stocking stuffer" 4oz jars available.  BUT we got creative and came up with an adorable 5oz jelly jar candle for just $10 each!  They're our very popular Christmas Cabin scent, of rustic holly berry + cinnamon stick.  Get yours before they sell out!  

FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $60!

It's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas

Winter 2021

Holiday candles are hitting store shelves now! 


Our workshop is swirling with so many new smells!  We're hard at work making batch after batch of holiday candles.  Cases of candles are shipping out to stores each day, and you can find them now in most stores!    In order to better serve our brick & mortar stockists while keeping a shred of work/life balance, we've decided to limit our online shop to seasonal candles only.   These brick & mortar stores need your support now more than ever in these post(-ish) pandemic times, so if you can, please mask up and support your local stores!   


We'll have a selection of holiday candles available for sale on this website throughout November and December!

Shopping for Christmas

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!

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.
