Candle Care and Info
Important Candle Care Information
Soy candles have something called "memory". The first burn is important because the candle will "remember" how far it burned the first time, and only go that far for the rest of its life! The first time you light it, it is important to let it burn all the way to the edge before blowing it out. If you blow the candle out before it reaches the edge, it will only go that far the next time and will begin to tunnel.
For cotton wicks: Trim wick to 1/2 inch before relighting. This helps prevent smoke, mushrooming, and maintains a clean even burn.
For wood wicks: tap top of wick lightly to remove any loose pieces before relighting. This helps prevent smoke and maintains a clean even burn.
As always be sure to burn your candle for no more than 4 hours at a time, keep away from drafts, anything flammable, children and pets. Only burn on a safe suitable surface and within sight. Allow candle to cool and dry before handling or relighting. Discontinue use when 1/2 inch of wax remains in the bottom of the container. Burn responsibly!
Picking the Right Size Candle
Picking the size of candle is just as important and picking the scent. With a candle that is too small for a room, the scent will not be strong enough to fill it. Likewise, if a candle is too big for a small room it may be overpowering. With that being said here are our recommendations for candle sizes for each room in the house!
• Tealights - bathrooms and decor pieces
• 4oz tins - bathrooms and small bedrooms
• 8oz tins - bedrooms, kitchen, dinning room, and smaller living rooms
• Ceramic tumblers - kitchen, dinning room and living rooms
• Kashmir collection jars - kitchen, dinning room and living rooms
The Perks of Soy Wax
Soy wax candles are unique. Since they are made from all natural soybeans, they are a renewable source and help support local farming and are eco-friendly! There are so many benefits for going with soy wax candles and not the average petroleum based, paraffin wax candles;
- They are eco-friendly
- Made from a renewable source
- Burn at a cooler temperature, making them last 30% - 50% longer than paraffin wax candles
- Burn cleaner, giving off little to no soot
