About

At this time, we have decided to cancel our Kickstarter. We have received some amazing feedback from the community, and continue to believe in this product. If you contributed to the campaign, your card was never charged. We will be reviewing our plan forward, and will keep you in the loop. 

The best way to stay updated is to make sure you are on our mailing list! Simply go to https://nirvanajarcandle.com and enter your email to receive updates regarding launch. 

I can't thank you enough for your support 

Candles cause nearly 10,000 house-fires per year in the United States. This equates to approximately 100 deaths, 1,000 injuries, and $300 million in property damage on a yearly basis. The largest cause of these fires – a forgotten about or neglected candle.  

Enter Nirvana Candle - the worry-free, self-extinguishing, candle. You can light a Nirvana Candle with confidence – knowing that it will automatically extinguish after one or two hours depending on the model. To use, it’s as simple as pressing a button, lifting the lid, and lighting your candle. 

Nirvana Candle limits the risk of a traditional candle by capping the amount of time the candle may be neglected.This allows you to be much more comfortable lighting your candle, knowing that if you accidentally forget about the candle or fall asleep while it is still lit, it will not be burning unattended for hours on end! 

How it Works

Simply press a button, lift the lid, light & enjoy. Depending on the model you purchase, your candle will automatically extinguish after 1 or 2 hours (if you don't blow it out first!).

When you press the button, a timer starts – allowing the lid to be placed in the ‘open’ position and allowing you to light the candle. After the time expires, the lid will automatically close, cutting off the oxygen to the flame and extinguishing the candle. 

Some of you may be thinking – so how does this all work? And why is this not a thing already? Well, the answer is in the design – for a product that seems so simple, there has been months and months of work to bring the idea of a self-extinguishing candle to life. We went through dozens of designs before landing on this one, which offers unparalleled levels of safety while maintaining aesthetics of a typical jar candle.

The most crucial piece that has made this design come together is a custom ultra-low-powered electromagnet. Utilizing the hinged lid, we were able to absorb most of the weight from the lid in the ‘open position’ within the hinge. The remaining weight is attempting to close the lid, which we mitigate through magnetism. 

This magnetic force is generated through the ultra-low-powered electromagnet. While there are many electromagnets that offer superior strength – most will last only a few minutes on batteries. We created an electromagnet that is powerful enough to generate the holding force we need, while lasting 50+ hours (lit in one or two hour increments). 

About the Candle

We use natural soy wax in our candles. Each jar is designed to hold approximately 13 oz of wax - resulting in a burn time of 50+ hours.  

Soy wax burns much cleaner than its paraffin counterpart, and does not produce any petrol-carbon soot. Soy also is much more eco-friendly than paraffin wax - an oil based byproduct used in many candles. In addition, soy burns up to 50% longer than paraffin - resulting in more uses per candle!

We will stock both seasonal and year-round fragrances. Fragrances will be determined by the Kickstarter Supporters. By contributing to our campaign, you will have the ability to vote on the fragrances you want the most!

How the Money will be Used

We currently have quotes in our hands for all of the custom pieces needed to bring this product to life. A large majority of the money is going straight towards the upfront cost of molds needed for manufacturing. The rest of the goal is for initial inventory & fulfilling backers orders. 

Any money raised beyond our goal will be used towards in-house machinery, inventory, and marketing.

Risks and challenges

When dealing with manufacturing, there is always the chance a project will have delays. We have been given lead times from each of our suppliers that makes us believe we can begin shipments in early 2019. We will keep in constant contact with our suppliers to ensure that there are minimal delays, and will keep any backers in the loop if the time-frame changes.
