Burning Tips

Soy candles burn much cooler than paraffin candles, but you still need to keep an eye on your candle. For best results, burn for 3-5 hours at a time.

Trim the wick before each use. Wicks should be trimmed to about 1/4" or less for best burning results.

Burn candles away from drafts and never burn near any combustible material like curtains.

Never leave a lit candle unattended and keep out of reach of children and pets.

Never leave matches or wick trimmings in the wax.

Be careful if you need to move your candle. It's best not to move your candle while burning or when wax is still hot.

The best method to extinguish your candle is to use a "wick dipper" to quickly dip the wick into the melted wax and lift it upright again. This way there will be no smoke like there is when you simply blow out a candle.

     Cleaning out the container for another use:

Soy wax is water soluble (unlike paraffin wax), so you can easily clean out your candle container and keep it for another use.

Your candle will stop burning when there is about 1/4" of wax left in the jar. Once this layer of wax is cooled and hardened, you can remove the wax & wick by dipping the bottom of the jar in hot water until the wax softens around the edges. Use a dull kitchen knife to scrape out the wax and wick assembly.

Dump out the wax and discard in trash (not in the sink). Wash the empty jar with hot, soapy water.
