on scented candles

CANDLE MAINTENANCE

  • ​To get the best scent out of your candle, burn it until the entire surface of the candle melts.
  • ​To preserve the fragrance, do not burn your candle for more than 3 hours non-stop during the first third of the candle and 1 to 2 hours only for the rest of the candle. 

  • Do not leave your candle unattended.​

  • ​Should the wick require centering, gently readjust to correct position when the wax is still molten. Allow the candle to solidify before relighting.
  • Keep away from flammable items such as paper. Keep away from small children, curtains and your beloved pets.

  • ​If there is any black smoke appearing, trim the wick to no longer than 6mm at all times.
  • ​Always protect the table or surface on which candle is placed upon (with a coaster or a plate, for example - NO plastic).​

  • Keep your candle in a dry and cool environment, between 60 and 80° F. Soy wax is softer than Parafin and beeswax. 

  • Please use your candle within the first two months after receiving it from our studio. 

  • Do not burn your candle all the way down. Always leave at least 5mm of non-molten wax at the bottom.

OUR SOY WAX

Home grown in America

Soy wax is a vegetable-based 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.

We choose soy wax because it's plant-based, renewable and biodegradable, which is much better choice for our earth. Soy wax we use is manufactured by AAK USA Inc. With over 15 years of experience in the Candle Industry, AAK USA Inc. is a leading manufacturer of botanical waxes. 

OUR OILS

Reliable and safe

The fragrance oil we use contains a high percentage of quality natural essential oils and is in compliance with the most recent standards published by the INTERNATIONAL FRAGRANCE ASSOCIATION (IFRA) in the USA. We choose oil that is Phthalate free for your best health conditions. 

OUR WICKS

All natural and clean

Our candle wick is a high quality 100% cotton wick braided with thin paper threads that gives the wick a rigid structure without the need for a core, this allows a consistent burn. Little to no soot, non-toxic and biodegradable. Paraffin-free, contains no lead, zinc or other metals.
