Our When’s Low Tide candle collection features hand-beachcombed containers with a hidden beach find (beach marble, bottle stopper, figural or jewelry quality sea glass) inside. Candles are hand-poured in small batches in-house by When’s Low Tide or Sweet Cider Candle Company in Maryland USA and depending on variety are topped with small/crushed seashells, fresh dried spices or florals, sea salt, candy sprinkles and other fresh ingredients, and most candle toppings include a tiny piece of sea glass.
Our candle scents vary by season but our current year-round collection includes Black Cherry Merlot, Lavender Vanilla, and Sea Salt Orchid. Please watch our social media for new scent releases. Our 4- and 8-candle sampler packs allow you to try current scents and include either 4 or 8 beach finds in the set of smaller jars.
Like each of us, the candle containers are unique and not perfect (often cracked, chipped, missing handles, etc) — they are in their shoreline-found conditions. Since they are fragile, we don’t recommend burning them for excessive amounts of time (more than 3-4 hours) because they do become quite hot, especially cobalt blue jars. Use a heat safe plate underneath and don’t leave unattended.
If you return your container after use to be refilled in the scent of your choice, we offer a 20% discount from our regular pricing, and the candle will contain a new beach find. Because of the fragile nature of the candles, we can’t guarantee they won’t break or do refunds. Unfortunately Shopify does not combine shipping on multiple orders and due to shop volume at this time we cannot process refunds for shipping on multiple orders.
A portion of all sales benefits The Beachcombing Center, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to preserving beachcombed finds from around the world and increasing awareness about marine debris and coastal erosion. Visit thebeachcombingcenter.org for more info.
Thank you for your support. We are pleased to honor the history of those who once owned the containers we are upcycling and reusing, and we hope the candles bring some joy, lighting up a bit of darkness in your home or life. 🌊🕯❤️
