Kentucky Heritage Candles

Dark Fired Kentucky


It's a Southern tradition. 

Celebrate one of our state's native cash crops, flourishing tobacco, fired in barns across Western Kentucky. This candle embodies smoldering hardwood fire that smokes Kentucky tobacco, resembling a balanced blend of its valor, density, and slight sweetness. Aside from its overtones of smoke and tobacco, as you enjoy this candle, Dark Fired Kentucky unfolds with soft notes of creamy vanilla, coca, and aromatic spices to make a beautifully unique, satisfying, and masculine, strong Kentucky candle.

4” width x 3.63” height candle size.

60-65 hour burn time.

All natural double wicked in a premium soy wax blend to ensure a beautiful fragrance throw in small to medium-sized rooms.

This candle is free of phthalates, carcinogens, and hazard groups included on California's Prop 65 list and is safe for your home.

Made single batches by hand in Lexington, Kentucky, to ensure the quality and love each candle will emit in your beautiful home. 

It reminds you of family because it's made by one. 

Trim natural wicks to about 1/4" before each use.

Snuff the candle after a 4-hour continuous burn time to allow the candle to reset itself and remain perfectly fragrant with each use. 

Natural candle wax has a memory. So, if you're experiencing wax buildup around the sides of the container, you're snuffing it too quickly. It's best to let an oil pool form entirely on the top before snuffing so the candle may start with a clean burn each use.
