Candle Care & Tips
Trim your wick.
Before each time you light your candle, trim the wick to ¼” height.
The first burn is the most important.
Wax has a memory. How it burns the first time you light it is how it will want to continue burning every time you light it. For soy wax candles, allow the candle enough time to burn until the melted wax reaches the walls of the vessel (about 1 hour per inch of diameter). This helps to prevent tunneling. For beeswax + coconut candles, you may find that your candle does not reach a full melt pool in the 1 hour per inch time frame. That's okay! As long as there is no more than 1/4" of wax around the outside it will catch up later in the burning process.
After you burn your soy candle, the surface of your candle may appear flaky or uneven when it cools. This is normal! This is the soy trying to return to its original state. It is actually a sign that your candle is 100% soy and does not contain paraffin.
Don’t overdo it.
To prevent damaging the vessel, only burn your candle until there is ¼-½” of wax remaining.
Keep candles on heat resistant-surfaces. Never leave a lit candle unattended. We do not recommend burning for more than 4 hours at a time.
