Meet your Maker + cheese!

June 15th, 2024

We've got a shiny new tent and we're taking this show on the road!  Join us on June 15th at the Red Head Creamery in Brooten, MN for CURDFEST!  If you love dairy products, locally produced beer and wine, if you love live music and petting baby cows, then you won't want to miss it! Tour their farm, visit their tasting room and gift shop (where our candles are sold), and check out this awesome family farm.  We'll be outside with all of our candles for sale, enjoying the fresh air and trying our darndest not to over do it on the cheese curds! 

Hope to see you there!

New Stockist!

Happening Now

We've made some new friends!  

In our adopted hometown of White Bear Lake you can now find our candles in Oldies & Goodies, a super fun new vintage boutique that also sells handmade goodies from MN artisans, right in the heart of downtown!


In New London, Minnesota head over to Happy Sol for some fabulous fashions (for both women AND men!), quirky homegoods, and of course, our candles.

If you reside in Perham, MN grab a cup of coffee at Nest and treat yourself to something fun in their gift shop full of unique finds and locally sourced goodies (& our candles!). 

Headed for a getaway up North?  Don't miss a hike around Gooseberry Falls in Two Harbors, and find our candles in their beautiful lodge gift shop!

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 fresh and watery Lake Superior Splash scent.


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 White Bear Lake home studio for your enjoyment.
