What are your candles made of?

Pure soy wax, high quality essential and fragrance oils and a cotton wick. That's it!

Why soy wax?

Soy wax is the oil of soybeans. Once harvested, cleaned and de-hulled the beans are rolled into flakes, the oil is then extracted and hydrogenated. Hydrogenation converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated making it solid at room temperature! As a result of choosing soy, it is an eco-friendly renewable resource and clean burning! It also burns at a lower temperature, making it last much longer.

What's the best way to burn a candle?

On the first burn, allow the melt pool to reach the edges of the jar - this is the most important step! This will help to prevent tunnelling and give your candle a nice even burn. Do not burn for more than 4 hours at a time and remember to never leave a lit candle unattended or near children or pets.

Trim as needed and remove any debris from the melt pool, you do not have to trim the wick before its first burn. For best results use matches to light your candle as lighters tend to leave a mess all over the jar. If this happens you can wipe clean once your candle has cooled and hardened.
