candle care

Natural soy wax is known for its lower production of soot and longer burn times. These benefits are best experienced when our candles are handled appropriately. Warning labels are included on the bottom of all of our products with the following information and more. ​​

Keep wicks trimmed to 1/4". This can be done by plucking the top of the wick with fingers or with a wick trimmer. Longer wicks create more soot and quicker burns.

Discontinue use of your candle when 1/2" of wax remains. As the candle burns, the color of the melted wax may change slightly. This is normal for colored wax. And never leave your candle burning for longer than four hours! 

"Blow out" your candle by simply placing the lid on top of your lit candle. There may be a small amount of soot buildup as the wax in your candle gets low due to the slightly narrower mouth opening of our jars. This can be removed with a quick wipe of windex!
