Happy Fourth of July!

July 2020

After what has been a crazy year+ in America, we'd like to wish you all a very happy Independence Day!  No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, we are grateful to have you as customers.  As a small business, we "feel ways" about the return of American manufacturing and the entire maker movement that's been happening the last 10 years or so.  We like to think that in our very small way, we are part of that!  And so are YOU! 

Have a happy & safe 4th of July!

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.
