CAndle Care tips

About soy wax

A great candle experience begins with proper candle care and maintenance. Here are some important burning tips.

  • Always trim the wick to 1/4 inch before lighting and keep debris out of the wax pool and never burn longer than 4-hour intervals.

  • Keeping your candle’s wick trimmed helps it burn more cleanly and efficiently. When wick trimming, you should always extinguish the flame, let the candle cool to room temperature, and trim the wick to the length stated on your candle’s bottom label before relighting.

  • Always burn candles well away from drafts, other heat sources, and anything flammable.

  • Make sure burning candles are out of reach of children and pets.

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans that behold some unique characteristics

Frosting:

Is a natural characteristic of soy. It is not a flaw. It is strictly unique to pure soy candles.  It is a way that a customer can tell if their candle is really made with, all-natural soy wax.

Frosting does not affect the scent throw or the burning properties of the candle. The frosting is a particular crystal growth of vegetable oils.

Wet Spots:

Are caused by shrinkage and air bubbles that occur as the wax is cooling inside the candle container. What happens is that part of the wax pulls away from the glassware and sticks to the container. It is common with paraffin wax, but can also occur with soy wax.
