ABOUT YOUR CANDLE
Why soy wax and is it better than paraffin wax?
Soy wax is derived from soy bean plants whereas paraffin wax is a refined petroleum bi-product. Soy wax is 100% biodegradable - paraffin is not.
Soy wax burns with a 'clean' flame whereas paraffin wax produces a sooty black flame. There are no known toxins or carcinogens released from soy wax candles and so they are much less likely to trigger allergies or cause headaches.
Soy wax candles generally burn for 30-50% longer than paraffin wax candles as they burn at a lower temperature.
Soy wax releases fragrance, from the essential oils added to it, more easily than the generally artificial scents added to paraffin wax candles. Soy wax burns more evenly so less wax is left clinging to the sides of the container.
How should I burn the candle for the first time?
Take your time! We know you would love to try it immediately but for the first burn make sure to allow 3-4 hours so that a large pool of melted wax can form right across the top of the candle. This means that you will maximise the fragrance released and also, very importantly, that the candle will burn all the way down. If you burn it for a shorter time it will form a smaller ring in the centre which will limit the amount of wax that will burn in the future (and your candle won't last as long).
Should I trim the wick?
Yes! The wooden wicks that we use produce a gentle crackling sound as they burn and a small flame. This doesn't mean that the fragrance isn't being released, it means that the candles is burning slowly and evenly. Before you light the candle again after a burn, trim it back to remove any blackened or uneven wood. You can use scissors, a candle trimmer or fingers.
How long should I burn the candle for each time?
Ideally 3-4 hours and a minimum of 2. It should not be burnt for more than 4 hours at a time to prevent the glass getting too hot.
Are there air bubbles in the candles and does it matter?
There shouldn't be any air bubbles in the wax but it may look as if there are. The wax is poured slowly and sometimes in different stages to ensure that there aren't any air bubbles. However there is often an optical illusion created by the uneven thickness of the bottles combined with the way the wax forms on the surface of the glass. If you look really carefully, you will be able to see this.
Is it safe to burn the candle to the bottom of the bottle?
No. When there is about 2cm (1/2 inch) of wax at the bottom of the bottle, stop. This is because the glass can get very hot, particularly at the base, at this stage and could break. This is definitely to be avoided.
If you would like to reuse your bottle as a vase or a pen holder or for any other purpose or would like to recycle it, you can clean it by standing in warm water and when the wax is soft use a spoon and paper towel to wipe it clean.
How long will my candle burn for?
If you are careful and burn it for 3-4 hours each time, it should last for a minimum of 40 hours.
