WAX: Our candles are made with coconut wax. This is a natural wax that we found this creates both a clean-burning candle and a "fill the room" scent throw.
FRAGRANCE: We make our candles with CLEAN SCENTS. We source the fragrance oils from a company that has reformulated them to be free from carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and other potentially hazardous chemicals often found in fragrance. Our fragrance line is completely, totally, 100% phthalate-free and made without ingredients found on the California Prop65 list.
WICKS - cotton or wood
- KEEP THE WOODEN WICK SHORT - this is the most important tip we can give you....keep your wick trimmed. Trim the wooden wick before your first burn to .5mm (1/8" - 1/4"). We suggest using a candle wick trimmer (or nail clipper) not a scissors. Trim the ash from the wood wick again before re-lighting. If the wick is too long, it cannot absorb the wax and burn properly.
- BURN IN 2-4 HOUR INCREMENTS - Your first burn should last at least an hour so the wax can melt evenly. Don't blow out until the melt pool reaches the edge of the glass. An uneven wax pool can drown the wick & cause problems lighting it. To preserve longevity of the scent in the candle, do not burn longer than 4 hours at a time.
- FLAME TOO HIGH - If your flame is too high, blow out the candle, trim the wick to 1/8" and relight. This will give you a safe flame height.
- STRUGGLES TO STAY LIT - sometimes you will notice that your wood wick candle may struggle to stay lit - this can be from burning too long, or not trimming the wick short enough. It can also happen with certain scents. If this happens, blow out the candle and blot up some of the melted wax with a small piece of paper towel - trim the wick to (1/4") before relighting. This should burn better the next time.
We do test our wicks with the various fragrance a few times a year to be sure your candle is burning properly, however just a slight variation in the batch of wicks or fragrance amount can make a difference in the burn. If you are having a problem or have any other questions please contact us. We'd be glad to help.
