Why choose soy candles

Soy wax is 100% biodegradable and a sustainable resource with a cleaner burning and burns up to 50% longer than paraffin.  Spills clean up with hot soapy water.  Soy wax releases fragrance naturally, eliminating the need to add chemicals.  We use only premium grade fragrance oils.

How much will my soy candle smell?

There are a number of factors which will affect the degree in which your chosen candle scent will permeate the air, including the specific fragrances (some fragrances are just stronger than others), room conditions, flame size & the amount of time you have been exposed to the fragrance (our nose becomes used to the fragrance).

What effects the burn of candles?

Room climate; cool wax burns longer than warm wax, fragrance load, wick size & candle width.

Achieving the optimum burn

Keep wick trimmed to 5mm long.  Never leave a burning candle unattended.  Never burn candle in a draught.  This will create an uneven burn.  Occasionally rotate the candle – this will assist in an even burn.  Burn candle each time for at least as long as it takes for melt pool to reach the edges of the container and 1cm deep no longer than 3 hours.   Depending on the width of your candle.  Use a wick dipper to extinguish the candle to avoid wax splashing when blowing out the candle.  NEVER burn you candle within 1cm or the bottom as the wax acts as filter to stop the container getting hot, scorching the underneath surface. ALWAYS place a dish under candle to protect the  surface from any heat exposure or wax.

What if my candle is smoking?

As carbon must be produced as a by product of fire there will be some smoke, but if your candle is smoking excessively try trimming the wick and removing any debris from the melt pool & when the candle has reset try relighting.
