Our Standards


At Rural, we believe that slow living is the way to find connection and contentment, and isn't that the whole purpose of life?

By slowing down, we can be in the present moment, choose to live with intent, and consciously curate a lifestyle that aligns with what matters most, for the benefit of our well-being, those around us, and that of the planet.

Locally made and consciously handcrafted are important values at Rural that guide our design, sourcing and production decisions. 

All of our candles are hand-poured in small batches for quality, using only pure, plant-based waxes and the finest blends of high-grade fragrances and essential oils for a long-lasting, clean-burning experience. 

Doing what we can to create a more circular economy is important to us.

We are proud to partner with local artisans to create a line of vessels that are meant to be treasured and used beyond the life of the candle itself.

All of our packaging can be recycled, reused and/or re-purposed, and we are excited to offer a Vessel Return program for our local customers so we can be a partner in closing the loop of the product lifecycle as well.
