  • CANDLE CARE INFORMATION 

How do I burn my sculptural candles?

Are candles are meant for novelty use only. If lit please put on a flat fire proof surface (ceramic plate). Never leave a burning candle unattended. 

How do I burn my jar/container candles?

Burn for a maximum of 2-3 hours. Trim wick to 1/4 inch before every burn. Do NOT blow the candle out, use the lid to snuff the flame. FYI: If these instructions are not followed there's gonna be a lot of smoke and soot and you're gonna set your smoke detector off and be very, very annoyed. If you notice the sides of your jar are getting black/soot-y - your wick is TOO LONG. Cut your wick to avoid this from occurring. 

Why does my candle look dusty/frosty?

This naturally occurs over time as the wax crystalizes and it's nothing to fret about. If you'd like you can reduce the "dustiness" of the surface by using a blow dryer on your candle to melt it a bit (do it on the slowest heat setting and go verrryyyyy carefully as to not melt your candle into a puddle. You can also warm your hands by rubbing them together and make a wiping motion with your hands/thumbs - you will melt the wax a teeny bit and improve the colour.

 

What are your candles made of?

All pillar/structural candles are made of soy wax. Candles in glass jars or containers contain a soy and paraffin wax mix.
