Project Description

Who We Are

We believe scent is a powerful thing. So many of our beautiful past stories are re-engaged by the power of scent. Sitting around the campfire with good friends and strong whiskey. Falling in love with your best friend. Walking through the forest in the dead of winter. There are scents that spark memories in all of us. 

Wax Buffalo gets that. We mix the purest American-made soy wax, with fine phthalate-free fragrance and essential oils, and we pour that creamy mixture over a clean burning cotton wick in the most dreamy vessels we can find. Light a wax buffalo candle, and then sit down and just remember, lose yourself in your story... find the magic again.  

All of our ingredients are carefully, and thoughtfully sourced to create beautifully safe, sustainable products that are vegan, cruelty-free, phthalate-free, petroleum-free, and never tested on animals. 

Why We're Here

We are excited to launch our first-ever crowdfunding campaign! In our usual fully transparent and authentic way we're coming to you, our community, to ask if you love our new Botanical Line as much as we do. 

This is the first time we've endeavored to create our very own glass - from start to finish...choosing the size, colors, and designs. Then filling these beautiful re-useable vessels with the most dreamy botanical scents. We are so in love with them, like SO in love. But this line is a departure from our known and loved amber X jars AND we've never been so floral-forward in our scent lines before now. Just a lot of firsts, ya know.

Let's be really real. Things have been challenging the past several years - for us as individuals and for small businesses. Since 2020, shipping costs have gone up over 300%...no that's not a typo. There are two zeros in that number. The high costs don't stop with shipping - the cost of pretty much everything has increased in the last couple of years. So, investing in this new line makes us nervous and sweaty but also so very excited!

So! We want to hear from you, our beloved community. You've always been there - you've shown up to openings and events and have just made our hearts really full with your unwavering support.  We can't wait to hear your thoughts, do you want this line too? 

The Botanical Line includes 5 gorgeous vessels in complimenting scents, including - Teak, Santal, Cactus, Wildflower, and Dahlia.

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

When will the Botanical Line be available to the public? 

  • It will launch in 2023!

 

When will I receive my reward?

  • Our goal is to begin shipping all rewards early December. 

 

How does purchasing something through this campaign help Wax Buffalo vs purchasing through your website? 

  • Great question. There are few ways in which supporting Wax Buffalo in this campaign will uniquely set us and our new botanical line up for success. This campaign will help us to gauge how excited you are about a new line that is so different from anything we’ve done in the past.  Purchasing now will also benefit us in providing some upfront funding to help cover all the costs associated with the creation of this line, while at the same time allowing our biggest fans to be the first to experience this beautiful new line.

 

I love Wax Buffalo and want to help but cannot contribute financially at this time. What else can I do to support this campaign? 

  • We totally understand! Another amazing way to help us would be to share this campaign with others. Talk about it to friends and family in person or on social media.  It would be a HUGE help to have others spreading the word along with us.

 

What happens if Wax Buffalo does not meet their fundraising goal? 

  • One of the reasons we chose to partner with IFundWomen is because of how their platform operates, we will receive all pledged contributions regardless of if our monetary goal is met. Similarly, anyone who supports us by purchasing a reward will receive the reward.
