9oz. Hand poured. Organic soy wax. 40-50 hour burn time.
This candle is made with 100% natural vegan soy wax and lead free cotton wicks. All candles are hand poured in small batches and test burned to ensure quality. Color and appearance may vary slightly from images. Frosting is a part of natural wax and will not affect smell or burn of your candle.
Why soy? Soy wax burns cleaner and much longer than other types of wax. Most name brand candles are made with paraffin wax, while soy candles are all natural and non-toxic and hold a stronger smell.
Caring for your wood wick candle:
The way a candle is burned the first time sets the “memory” for future burns. If the wax is not allowed to pool (turn to liquid) to the edges of the jar, this will create a tunneling effect, and each time you light it, a small tunnel will be created in the wax until the flame cannot breathe and will no longer stay lit. It is therefore important that you let your candle burn long enough to form a full melt pool before you extinguish it.
Wooden wicks may need to be relit a few times to stay lit, but once the wicks get going, they will burn and crackle wonderfully. It is recommended to tilt the candle to the side when lighting so that the flame from your lighter draws across the entire wick sufficiently.
Trimming your wicks before each relight extends the burn time of your candle. The recommended length is 1/8”- 1/16” (usually this will be the blackened burned part at the top of your wick). Wooden wicks work by pulling on the melted wax, so if they are not close enough to the wax, they may not be able to “feed” properly, but if you trim your wick too short, it may drown in the wax.
Untrimmed wicks can have trouble staying lit or may burn too fast, shortening the life of the candle. Wick trimmers or nail clippers work best for clipping your wicks. You can also use your fingers to pinch off the blackened part, but be careful and do not do this if the candle has been recently burned and the wick is hot!
Never leave candles unattended, near anything flammable, or around pets and children.
