Heaving beasts of iron and and steel swore a pact with these United States. Prosperity and riches they promise, but a feast they must collect in return. These creatures pay no loyalty, and such deals are struck in  lands, far and near. The frenzy for black gold drives the Oilman under earth. Under seas. Under ice. A good man, a family man, drenched in slick grease, stamps his blood, his sweat, into the oily dirt. Flames rocket high unto the heavens. Spewing forth from the very beasts he toils to feed. The heartbeat of this growing nation continues to thump. Driven by pistons, by drive-belts, by pumps. Tall tales tell that this Oilman of Pittsburgh was young Buster Mandel. 


Buster’s premium, small batch, all natural, no nonsense, pure soy wax candles are masterfully blended with essential oils and hand poured - the old way -  in the USA. They feature rugged, sustainably sourced wood wicks. All candles are cruelty free, and contain none of the toxins commonly found in mass market candles. No carcinogens, no parabens, no phthalates, no lead, no parafin. Buster’s burns cleaner! 

All tin candles come with Buster's proprietary Leverage Crowbar, for ease of opening; the right tool for the right job.

“You get what you pay for!”


"1 Pint": 16oz - Dual Wick - 80+ Hr Burn

"Half Pint": 9oz - Single Wick - 45+ Hr Burn



Once lit, ensure the pool of melted wax reaches all sides of the container before extinguishing. Failing to do so may cause “tunneling”, which can negatively impact future burns.


Ensure wood wicks are trimmed to 1/8” before every use. This allows the flame to effectively burn the wax as fuel. If the wick is too long, only the wood will burn and extinguish shortly after lighting.


To prevent fire and serious injury: Burn candle within sight. Never burn a candle on or near anything that can scorch, discolor or catch fire. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Trim wicks to 1/8 inch before each lighting. Keep all objects, including matches and wick trimmings out of the candle. Allow to cool before relighting. Avoid burning candles in a draft. Do not extinguish flame with water. Do not blow on candle to extinguish. Do not leave candle burning unattended. Do not burn for an extended period. If candle is damaged or appears otherwise defective, cease use immediately.
