Candle Care and FAQ's

How should I store my candles?

Candles should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, heat, and moisture. Make sure to keep your candles in an upright position to prevent wax from spilling.

How long should I burn my candles?

For the best results, we recommend burning your candles for no more than 4 hours at a time. This helps to prevent the wick from burning too quickly and the wax from pooling.

What should I do if my candle is smoking?

If your candle is smoking, you should blow it out immediately and trim the wick to about 1/4 inch. This will help the candle to burn more evenly and prevent excessive smoke.

What kind of wax is used in the candles?

Our coconut and apricot waxes are gluten free, toxin free, paraben-free, phthalate free, and come from renewable sources, that burns cleanly and provides an excellent base for long-lasting, great-smelling candles.

What type of fragrance do you use?

We use high-quality, clean fragrance oils, specifically for use in candles. They are clean, free of phthalates, skin safe, and pet friendly.

How do I remove the excess wax to reuse the vessel?

A good way to remove the excess wax in the bottom is to place the vessel in the freezer for ½ hour. This will allow the wax to shrink and then can be easily removed. Or run hot water from the tap, add some liquid dish detergent into the tumbler and leave to soak overnight.

Are packing peanuts safe to dissolve?

Yes, we use biodegradable packing peanuts that dissolve in water as the organic compounds will begin to breakdown.
