Welcome to September!
Hi Keap subscribers!
Each month we choose a Seasonal Scent, rituals and artwork inspired by reconnecting to the seasons. Discover this month's inspiration below.
If you'd like to receive our seasonal updates and stories in your inbox, join our newsletter here.
“As soon as I get the new candle, I swap out my old one (which has usually burned down completely at that point), light the wick, and just take a deep inhale.”

The Seasonal Scent
Each month, we choose a scent to match the season from our range of nature-inspired scents, and we send this scent to our Seasonal Scent subcribers.
SEASONAL SCENT, September: Canyons
Candle Burning Tips
Each time you use your candle, trim the wick to 3⁄8” (about the width of your pinky finger) before you light it. This helps ensure a smaller, safer flame and less soot.
Each time you burn your candle, burn it for 2-3 hours. This will not only maximize the fragrance throw, but also help avoid "tunneling," where the candle burns down the middle, leaving wax around the edges.
For safety reasons:
▶ Don’t burn your candle when less than a 1/2” of wax remains.
▶ Never leave a burning candle unattended!

Tealight Burning Tips
The tealights are indicative of what our full candles smell like, but our full candles are much more powerful. To appreciate each scent, burn the tealight nearby or in a small room—bathrooms are a great place to test.
Not feeling next month's scent? You can always swap to Wood Cabin or skip your next shipment. Make the change directly in your account -or- email us at TheLab@KeapBK.com, and we'll make the change for you.
Some safety tips for your tealights:
▶ Don’t leave lit candles (even tealights!) burning unattended.
▶ Burn on a flat surface.
▶ Be careful as the tins can get hot!
