Get the best out of your candles.
Are you wondering why your soy candles come with care instructions?
If the answer is a resounding yes. Keep reading....
“Fact! Soy candles actually smell better with age. This is due to the fragrance becoming more imbedded in the molecules of the soy.”
The reason we love Soy candles is that they burn clean. The wax is natural and biodegradable. They come from soy beans, meaning they are made from natural and renewable resources.
How to care for your candles
The first time you light your candle be sure to allow it to burn to the edge of the jar. This is known as a "memory" burn. This allows the candle to burn evenly. Do this after each light. Do not leave lighted candle near flammable surfaces, kids or pets.
Before relighting your candle, make sure it has completely cooled and hardened.
Trim back the wick to 1/4" before lighting again. We recommend using wick trimmers
Avoid the container getting too hot! Extinguish the candle after it has burned for 4 hours. Do not extinguish your candle until wax has melted to the edges of the jar.
If you are a candle collector (you aren't the only one), it's best to store them in cool, dry and, dark place.
As a safety precaution be sure to keep candles out of reach of small children and pets. Always burn in a well ventilated area and away for loose particles.
