Candle Facts

Soy wax burns cooler (slower) than paraffin, therefore increasing your burn time. Soy wax has a lower melt point so remember to keep your candles out of the sun and bright light as this may cause your candle to sweat or discolor. If "sweating" occurs, place your candle in the refrigerator and it will quickly return to normal.

Soy wax candles produce very little (if any) soot and smoke. To keep smoke at a minimum, be aware of how you burn your candles. Each time you light your candle, trim the wick down to 1/4-1/2". Do not allow wick trimmings to fall into your wax melt pool and burn the candles in areas free from drafts.

You can burn a candle too long. The maximum recommended burn time is 4 hours per burn. Burning your candle longer may result in an unstable wick that could fall over into the wax melt pool. Once this happens, it is almost impossible to be able to burn your candle again. Burning longer than the recommended time is also dangerous, especially when combined with improper wick trimming. Although we use heat-safe glass, it cannot withstand the high temperature of an excessively deep melt pool and high flame!

Soy wax cleans up easily with soap and water, but remember it is still a wax and should not be poured down the drain.

Soy wax candles have a few unique characteristics to them that in no way effect the wonderful way they burn. As well as containing a lead-free wick, your candle will have a creamy, off-white color to it. In keeping with our desire to create as natural a candle as possible, we have chosen not to add artificial color to our wax. There are a few fragrance oils that are a bit darker and will add a pale yellow tint to that particular wax.

You may notice some wet looking spots on your candle where the wax has adhered to the surface of the glass. They are caused by temperature variations and are simply due to the expansion and contraction of the wax. You will notice that they change as the candle is burned or when the room conditions change. They in no way affect the quality of the candle. Soy candles are very sensitive to temperature and light so be aware of the location when placing or storing your soy candle.
