Burnt Soy Candles

Candle Care

Trim the wick to approximately 5mm long & trim prior to each and every burn. 
This will ensure a clean flame and avoid black smokey candles
To get the very best out of your candles, here are some helpful hints. 

First burn

Soy candle wax has what’s called a memory. That means that when you first burn a soy candle and then extinguish it, the next time you burn it, the soy candle wax will melt across as far as it did the first time.
This is why it is so important to allow your candle to burn all the way across to the edge of the jar the first time you burn it before putting it out. This ensures that your candle does not “tunnel” as it burns, leaving wax along the sides of the container. A good rule of thumb is to burn your candle 1 hour for every inch wide that the candle is. So if you have a 3 inch wide candle, you may need to burn it for at least 3 hours for a good melt pool.
A good melt pool will give off the best fragrance throw.

 

Wicks

Trim the wick to approximately 5mm long & trim prior to each and every burn. 
This will ensure a clean flame and avoid black smokey candles.

 

Storage

It's best to store your candles in a cool dry area below 25 degrees celsius away from direct sunlight. You may find that on extremely hot days the top of your candle may "sweat" a little. This is nothing to be worried about, once the weather has cooled down they "sweat" will be reabsorbed in to the wax.  

 

Appearance

Our candles are poured in micro batches, which means they are hand poured with love especially for you. There can occasionally be some imperfections and the wax can sometimes not 100% adhere to the glassware, this is nothing to worry about. It will not affect they performance of your candle in any way. Sometimes white spots may appear on the wax, this is called frosting and is completely normal when using soy wax, again, this does not affect the way your candle will burn.
