Frequently asked questions
What does Keystone Inspired mean?
Keystone Inspired is a feeling of comfort that is inspired by the tranquility in nature. Our brand was created to celebrate the simplicity of a life lived outdoors. The name Keystone comes from our owner's childhood on Lake Keystone and her current home in Colorado.
Using only basic elements, we mindfully handcraft all products with our love of nature and the environment in mind.
I love my new candle! Any tips?
Recommended burn time is 3-4 hours max. Trim the wick to 1/4" before lighting. For best results, allow the wax to melt to the edges before extinguishing to prevent tunneling. Never leave candles unattended and burn on a level, fire resistant surface. Keep out of reach from children and pets.
Why should I choose eco-friendly candles?
Most candles are made with petroleum-based paraffin wax, use lead-filled wicks and fill them with synthetic chemical fragrance oils which fill your home with toxins and carcinogens. Our products are all non-toxic and use recycled materials to keep your body and Mother Earth happy!
Are all of your candles really eco-friendly?
Of course! We use 100% recycled glass jars, american-grown pure soy wax, cotton wicks, phthalate-free, non-toxic fragrance oils which are also Prop 65 compliant. Our labels are made out of 100% recycled vellum. All marketing materials and shipping packaging are also 100% recycled.
Soy wax over Paraffin wax? Why?
Soy is a natural, biodegradable, vegan, sustainable resource grown in the US to support American suppliers. It burns cleaner and is non-toxic which is better for your health and the health of those around you. Paraffin wax is made out of petroleum oil which releases carcinogens and toxins into your home while soy is environmentally friendly.
What about packaging? Is that recycled also?
Yes! Always yes! Our labels and packaging are all printed on 100% recycled paper. All boxes, bags and tissue paper are 100% recycled - even our tape and packing peanuts are biodegradable! All candle toppers on glass jars are made out of seeded paper which also grow into wildflowers.
We take the environment seriously and do what we can to reduce waste.
Are all of your scents 100% phthalate free?
Absolutely! We pride ourselves on creating candles that only use phthalate free, non-toxic oils that are derived from natural ingredients without synthetic chemicals.
What is a seeded paper topper?
When we first started, we didn't have boxes and chose seeded paper as our topper. The circular topper can be planted in soil and when the paper biogegrades the seeds are left to grow wildflowers.
Even though we have boxes now, we still use our seeded paper toppers to give back to the environment. During the warmer months, you will find these on top of the tissue paper to maintain the integrity of the paper.
Who designs all of your packaging?
Our packaging is designed by Kristy Black, an incredible designer located in Denver, Colorado.
Do you donate any proceeds to charity?
Yes!! So much yes! A portion of each purchase is donated to local animal shelters in Denver, Colorado.

Can you ship internationally?
Not at this time, but hopefully in the near future.
