Candles have a burn memory! For the best result, burn your candle until the entire surface melts to the edge to avoid tunneling. For our 9oz candles, this can take anywhere from 1-2 hours; and 4oz candles no more than 1 hour. To extinguish your candle, simply place a snuffer or candle dome over it. Wait to trim the wick to about 1/4" just before every burn, when the candle is cool. Avoid trimming the wick too short as you'll have a difficult time relighting.

*CAUTION: Failure to follow instructions could result in fire hazard or injury. Keep wax free of matches, wick trimmings, or other flammable materials. Keep wick centered & trimmed to 1/8" to ensure even burning & prevent the flame from becoming too large. Burn only on a stable heat resistant surface for not more than 4 hours at a time. Keep out of drafts. Discontinue use when only 1/2" of wax remains on the bottom. Do not move candle while burning or if the wax is hot. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

Never leave a burning candle unattended.

- FAQ -

Why soy wax?

All of our candles are made with soy wax. So, why soy wax? Soy wax is longer lasting compared to traditional paraffin wax by 30-50%. Soy candles are natural since they are made from vegetable oil. They're non toxic, meaning they don't release toxins into the air as they burn. The scent from the soy candles is more mellow than the scent from paraffin candles.
