BURNING & TRIMMING
For best results, when lighting your candle for the first time, burn your candle for 3 to 4 hours or until a full melt pool has formed around the jar. This will help the longevity of your candle and ensure your candle's best performance. Trim your wick to about 1/4 inch before each burn. For your first burn, your wick will be pre-trimmed for your convenience. Glass jars can be recycled or upcycled - you can melt and throw away the remaining wax, clean out the jar and reuse it as you wish.
Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated.
The U.S. grows the vast majority of the world's soy beans, primarily in Illinois, Iowa, and Indiana.
Soy wax also burns slower than other waxs, meaning you'll get a candle that lasts longer. And while all candles emit some black soot while burning, soy wax burns cleaner and results in less soot than others, specifically paraffin.
Vegan friendly, cruelty-free, phthalate-free, palm oil-free, and non-toxic fragrance oils. Fragrance oils contain natural elements (essential oils, extracts, resins, isolates) but are not fully natural. Compounds that aren’t sourced direct from nature are either chemically identical to naturally found compounds, artificially created, or modified slightly.
Our wicks are made from pure cotton and brown paper threads, incorporated into a sustainer (metal tab) and secured to the base of the container with a glue dot.
Please see each individual candle description for specific ingredients and allergens, and make sure to read the safety sticker located on the bottom of the jar before lighting.
Each candle is handmade and handpoured by me in Columbus, GA. All candles, wax melts, and room sprays are made in small batches to ensure an excellent final product. This means that despite my efforts, they may have some imperfections such as uneven tops, slightly off-centered labels or wicks, etc. Drops in temperature while in transit can also affect candles and create wet spots, air pockets, cracking, frosting and minor discoloration of the wax, especially during winter and summer. This happens to all candle makers, and none of these issues will impact the quality and performance of the candle.
