I strive to ship as soon as possible, typically within 1-3 days, although May through September I ship out only Mondays and Tuesdays following the receipt of an order for items being shipped ground. This is to avoid any candles sitting in a hot warehouse or hot truck for extended periods over a weekend. Neither one of us would be happy with that outcome. October through April, orders are typically shipped the next day. If you need an item quickly, especially during the hot summer months, please select 2-3 day air. You will be notified by email once your order has shipped.
