What's the best way to burn a MIXED Soy Candle?
Our recommended burn time is 3-4 hours. Be sure to trim the wick to 1/4" before each lighting. Always allow the melt pool to reach the edges of the jars before extinguishing. This will allow the candle to burn evenly and prevent "tunneling." Be sure never to leave a candle unattended or in reach of children, pets or a draft. Allow the jar to cool completely before handling.
We choose to work with soy wax for a variety of reasons. We love that it's an 100% renewable resource and carbon neutral. We love that it burns more cleanly - and better yet - for a longer period of time than paraffin. We love the way soy wax smells mixed with essential oils. Soy candles are better for the environment and your health: they are non-toxic and burn cleaner than paraffin wax. It produces as much as 90% less soot than paraffin wax. This soot can blacken walls, ceilings, and furniture, contaminate ventilation ductwork in your home, and most importantly, add toxic carcinogens into the air that you breathe.
How is soy wax made?
Soy beans are husked and dried into flake form, then the oil is extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated. The hydrogenation alters the chemical compound so that soy bean oil is a solid at room temperature - soy wax! Leftover bean husks are typically used as animal feed.
My candle isn’t burning the way I think it should…
Each wooden wick is slightly different. This is because before our wicks were made, they were trees! Because our wooden wicks are made with an organic and untreated wood, slight variances in the wood thickness and grain will cause every MIXED candle to burn a little bit differently. We Use wooden wicks as it provide a more unique, luxurious and delightful sensory experience than traditional cotton wicks do, and we are sure you will agree with us!
