  • Should I trim my wicks?
    Our wicks - made from lead free cotton - require trimming should your candle start smoking. Trimming the wicks will keep the candle burning without any black soot and it will give your candle a longer burn time.
  • How do I care for my soy candle?
    Caring Instructions for your SOY CANDLE - When lighting your soy wax candle for the very first time, it is very important that you allow the wax to have a full melt pool. This means the wax must be melted to the edge of the jar. Burn the candle for a minimum of one hour for every inch of its diameter. All future burns should follow the first one's path and melt fully to the sides. Should you not do this all subsequent melts will not go pass the first one. - Always remember to store your soy candle in a cool place, out of direct sunlight. - Be sure the candle is placed on a stable heat resistant surface and for safety discontinue burning a candle when 2 inches of wax remains.
  • What is 'mushrooming'?
    Mushrooming is caused by unburnt wax and fragrance being drawn up through the wick and 'capping on top'. It's pretty common with all cotton wicks, as they act like a straw and pull melted wax and fragrance oil up to the top of the wick. The mushroom won't hurt anything as long as you don't let it get too big. When the candle is cool, just take a tissue and press (don't bend or twist) the mushroom off, and discard the cap pieces.
