FAQ about our Candles

What does a wax blend mean ?

We use a premium- quality blend wax. We like the all natural renewable qualities of the soy but the hot throw (smell when burning) of the paraffin. We tried 100% soy but they were just not strong enough. The soy-paraffin blend creates a wonderful base to add and create all our amazing scents. This allows for longer burn times and doesn't give off excess soot or smoke. Harmony Blend was creates a highly fragrant scent.  This blend is a great option because it is natural and clean and derived from plant-based materials. 

 Why is it important to trim the wicks?

Trimming the wicks is very important. Trimming the wicks will keep the candle burning without any black soot and it will give your candle a longer burn time.

Here is what happens when you do not trim the wicks properly. When a wick gets too long it cannot draw wax all the way up to the top of the wick. Therefore, the wick itself will start to burn. So keep the wicks properly trimmed . 

How should I trim the wicks & how often?

The wicks should be trimmed 1/4 inch every time before you light your candle.  You can use a scissors, nail clipper, or a candle wick cutter. Your best option is to use a candle wick cutter.  Available in Accessories. 

IMPORTANT: You should not allow your candle to burn more than a couple of hours at a time without trimming of the wicks. If you want to burn it longer you should extinguish the candle, then trim the wicks carefully and relight it. This will give you extra hours of clean burning.
