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.
