Tips & Good Use Advice

Candles

  • When lighting a soy candle for the first time, allow the wax to melt all the way to the sides of the container.
  • Trim the wick to ¼ inch each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning, dripping or flaring.
  • Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
  • For best performance, burn candle until wax melts evenly across container, ideally between 2 to 4 hrs.
  • Soy wax burns cooler than paraffin wax and therefore is safer if spills. It can be cleaned up or washed out with soapy water.
  • Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers or smokes repeatedly. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts before re-lighting.
  • To extinguish soy candles use a special wick dipper or a non-flammable tool. This will avoid the formation of smoke and will help with re-lighting next time. Use the end of a wick dipper to push the wick into the pool of wax and then pull the wick up again. Alternatively use a candle snuffer.
  • The top of your soy candle may appear slightly uneven; this is a sign of natural soy wax being hand poured.
