FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- WHY SOY WAX?
There are many green advantages to soy wax. Soy wax is a derivative of soy beans. Wheres paraffin wax is derived from petroleum or coal which is a non renewable source and is commonly used. Soy wax burns cleaner, meaning there's less soot than paraffin wax emits (if you ever burned a candle and it left black soot on your wall or furniture, it was paraffin wax). Soy wax also burns slower, giving you more time to enjoy your candle
- HOW SHOULD I BURN MY CANDLE?
Make sure your wick is trimmed 1/4th first. Light and burn your candle for at least 4 hours or until the melt pool reaches the edge of the jar. Candles have memory. However far you let your candle burn the first time is it is what it will burn from then on. Once your candle has burned for four hours, blow it out and let cool. You should only burn your candle for 4 hours at a time because this can prevent the candle from over burning, producing soot, and keep the wick from mushrooming. If you would like to blow out the candle without smoke following, take a paper towel a little bigger than the glass, wet it until it’s wet but not dripping, squeeze out excess water, and place it over the candle. This will snuff it without the smoke.
- MY CANDLE IS TUNNELING, WHAT DO I DO?
If your candle is burning straight down the middle and leaving wax on the sides, there are ways you can fix it. The first is to allow your candle to burn a little longer, you may not have let your wax pool form big enough. If after an hour it's still tunneling, take aluminum foil and form it into a cone the size of the candle opening, you want to leave a small hole at the top so the aluminum looks like a volcano. Place on top of your candle and the trapped heat will melt down the sides of the container, evening out your melting pool.
