About Soy Candles

These instructions will give you the very best soy candle experience!

Burn Times:

Burn times are approximate:
Soy shots: 6-14 hrs varies due to burning times (some leave warmers on all day, others only a few hours) 
Soy clamshell melts: 16-25 hours
12oz jar: 70-100hours
16 oz jar:100-115 hours

16oz candle:  50 hours of burn time! This beautiful candle will provide a warm glow and a comforting scent of your choice. We love to show off the hues and colors of the natural soy wax; therefore, we do not add any dyes to our candles. The cotton threaded wick creates the perfect flame to evenly melt the candle. We always recommend 3 hours for the first initial burn time so that the melt memory can kick in for a nice even burn.
 
When burning your soy candle for the first time, it is important to allow the candle to burn for 2 1/2-3 hours
so that it can create an even melted pool of wax all the way across the entire jar!
 To avoid the candle from “tunneling” down the center of the container. 
 
Warnings:
*Please store your soy candle away from windows and ultraviolet lighting.
*Remove all homespun, ribbon, twine, hang tags or anything that may catch on fire prior to lighting your candle.
*Keep wick trimmed to 1/4″ at all times to ensure even burning & to prevent the flame from becoming to large.
*Keep out of reach of children & pets.
*Always burn candles within sight, never leave candles unattended.
*Burn on a stable heat resistant surface.
*Extinguish the flame if it becomes to close to the side of your container as the glass may crack.
*Keep away from drafts & vents.  Always keep candle away from anything that can catch fire.
*Do not touch or move candle when lit or when wax is melted, glass can become hot.
*Never burn candle more than 4 hours the glass can become to hot and can crack under extreme heat.
*Keep wax free of wick trimmings, matches and any other flammable material.
*Burn your soy candle in a well ventilated room.
*Do not burn candle when wax is 1/2″ or less from the bottom of the container THIS WILL CAUSE YOUR CONTAINER TO CRACK.
*Extinguish your candle if it smokes or if flame becomes larger than 1″. Let candle cool for at least an hour, trim wick and re-light.

 

What is the oil/wetness on top of my candle? This is called “Soy Sweat”. Since soybean wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax, it can release excess moisture that it cannot hold (usually due to extreme temperature changes due to shipping). You can leave it or wipe it out with a tissue or paper towel. Normally the moisture disappears after your first burn . Sweat from soy candles will NOT affect the burn quality and will generally not show up again after your first burn. 

Why has my candle turned yellow? We don’t use any additives in our soy candles. Several factors will cause your candle to turn yellow after time. We strongly recommend displaying your candles in areas that do not have fluorescent lighting, direct sunlight or other strong lighting. Some oils have the tendency to turn yellow very easily. **Shiplap and blueberry muffin are notorious for this due to vanilla content** This will NOT affect the burn quality of our candles. Most customers burn their candles before it yellows.

We know shipping can be a bummer so we always throw in samples to help offset the shipping costs and make it worth your while!
