How should I store my soy candles?

Soy candles are best stored in a cool dry place. Soy candles can begin to soften if stored in an area that gets over 25 degrees. It is best to place your candle out of direct sunlight (this can discolour the candle).

Candles are a beautiful way of decorating your home and they deserve the best care possible. Leaving a candle unattended can cause damage to the area where they are and always keep out of reach of children and pets. Always position candles on a flat and heat resistance surface.

How long can I burn my candle for?

Depending on the size of the candle, the total burn time can vary. It is recommend that you do not burn your candle for longer than three hours. 

What is a 'first burn' of my candle?

A 'first burn' is when you first light your candle and burn it for a number of hours, until a full melt pool has been reached on the top of the candle. A 'first burn' is super important, this avoids the candle tunnelling and ensures that you get the longest possible life of your candle. Once a full melt pool is reached, it is okay to extinguish your candle. 

What happens when my soy wax candle has bubbles?

This is totally normal, bubbles are natural in soy wax candles. Seeing bubbles in your candle does not mean that the candle is faulty in any way and they do not affect the burn time of your candle. 

Should I burn my candle all the way to the bottom of the jar?

While burning your soy candle, the ceramic or glass jar becomes very hot. If this continues all the way to the bottom of the jar, it may break. To prevent any safety issues, burn your soy candles to about 1cm from the bottom of the jar and remember to use a candle plate or a similar heat resistant surface to place your soy candles on.

Should I trim my wick and how often? 

Yes, please make sure you trim your wick. If you do not trim your wick, the candle can burn unevenly and can cause smoke and a very high flame. You should trim your wick after every burn (once the wax has hardened and the wick is cool). Do not trim the wick too much as a short wick will create smoke and uneven burning. Approximately 6-10mm should prevent mushrooming. 

What if I don't have a wick trimmer?

That's totally fine, if you do not have a wick trimmer you can use paper towel or a tissue once the candle has reset and the wick is cool. Simply grab some of the wick and pull gently, this will reset the wick back to the appropriate size.  

How long should I wait before I can relight my soy candles?
Allow your candle to cool down before you relight it. This allows the wax pool to solidify and keep an even burn throughout the life of the soy candle.

How to wash your container once the whole candle has melted? 

Soy wax is water soluble so you can wash our soy candle jars with hot soapy water. However, never pour your wax in the drains (the wax will solidify and clog your sink).

Why is my soy candle smoking?
Smoking may happen when the soy candle is in a draft or if the wick has gotten too long. Always keep the candle away from drafts and make sure you trim the candle wick regularly to a length between 6-10mm.
