CANDLE CARE

SAFETY: 
We cannot stress enough how important it is to keep the wicks trimmed on our candles (as well as any others you buy). This reduces soot and doesn't cause the flame to flicker wildly, and extends the life of the candle. 

  • Do not burn candles unattended. 

  • Burn on a flat heat resistant surface and away from flammable items. 

  • Keep children and pets away from burning candle. 

  • Do not touch hot, liquid wax.

  • Keep wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches or other debris

  • Limit the burn time of your candle to 4-6 hrs maximum to prevent the glass from overheating.

  • Do not light the candle when less than 1/4" of wax remains

 

OTHER CANDLE INFO: 
Our candles are designed to scent an average sized room. If the area where it is at is very large and open the fragrance may not be very strong.

We fragrance our candles with the maximum recommended amount of fragrance oils suggested by the manufacturer. Some fragrances are simply stronger than others. If you feel the scent is too light, the room might be too large for our size candle. Try putting it in a smaller room or by add'l candles. 

Sometimes you get used to the scent and can no longer smell it as strongly. Just step outside for a bit, take a few deep breaths of fresh air and go back into the room where the candle is - chances are you will be able to smell it again.

 

Our melts, travel tins and container candles are made from 100% natural soy wax – our soy wax is produced from the oil derived from soy beans and is guaranteed to contain no animal products, paraffin, petroleum or beeswax. Our soy wax is fully biodegradable and contains no pesticides or herbicides.

Soy wax typically last longer than paraffin wax. The reason behind the longevity of soy wax is the slower burning time and cooler burning temperature of the soybean-based wax. Because they burn more slowly, the scent is gradually released; there won't be an immediate wave of strong scent. This creates a more pleasant atmosphere for most people.

As our melts, travel tins, and container candles are made from a pure, all-natural soy wax (no blend with paraffin etc.) - white marks (called "frosting" or "blooming) may appear. Frosting is a particular crystal growth of vegetable oil due to soy wax polymorphism. It will cause the wax to look dry, which is simply a characteristic of that crystal structure.

Frosting does not affect the scent throw or the burning properties of the wax. You can safely burn or melt with a bloom without worry. To minimize frosting, try to keep your soy wax products out of direct sunlight and florescent lighting. Even changes in the weather can cause additional frosting.

Because our products are handmade and hand-poured in small batches to ensure an amazing wax burning experience, color and appearance may vary slightly between batches.

Our freestanding or decorative candles are made with a soy wax blend. This blend is what gives structure intergerity to our candles. The issue with using all soy wax for freestanding candles is generally they are too brittle and do not burn well due to high hydrogenation. Blends have more "structure" and are not as brittle.

 We use a soy votive/pillar wax blend for our freestanding candles. Usually it is made up of mostly soy wax with some vegetable oils added to it.

Wax Melts and Tarts 

INSTRUCTION: Remove packaging before use. Put a required amount of wax melt to the top of an electric or tea light tart melter/oil burner to melt. Do NOT add water. Do NOT melt on stove top or in non-approved appliances. Do NOT leave burner unattended while in use. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
