candle care

Trim your wick to ¼” before lighting - every time.
Trimming your candle wick each time before relighting is imperative to a properly burning candle. It doesn't matter what you use to trim the wick. It can be nail clippers, regular scissors, or a wick trimmer, it just matters that you trim it.

Allow your candle to burn until the full surface has melted. This ensures that your candle reaches a full melt pool and burns evenly.
If you extinguish your candle before a full melt pool is formed, your candle will tunnel, greatly reducing the lifespan of your candle. It's not our responsibility to replace or refund in the case of a purchaser tunneling. Depending on the size of the candle, a full melt pool may take 2-3 hours.

Don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
Burning your candle for longer than this will create a "mushroom" effect on the wick. This is a carbon build up on the wick which is a result of the candle consuming more wax than it can burn off. This commonly causes an unstable flame (too large or flickering), soot to build up on the container rim, and soot to release from the flame.

Keep an eye out. Place your candle within eyesight and away from any flammable items, pets, children, or drafts.
This is a simple one. Candles need fire to work and fire can be dangerous. Please use caution when candles are lit and remember to blow them out before leaving a room.

Say goodbye to your candle when ¼” of wax is left at the bottom of the vessel.
Time for a new candle! Continuing to let the candle burn past its lifetime can overheat the vessel and increase the chances of starting a fire. You're the only one that can prevent a candle fire.

Reuse or recycle your candle vessel once it’s time to reorder.
Before you throw away your finished candle, consider cleaning it out and finding a new use for the vessel. To clean it out, throw it in the freezer for a few hours and the rest of the wax should fall right out. You can use dish soap and hot water to clean out any residual wax still left. If you don’t have a use for the empty vessel consider giving it away. If you’d rather get rid of it, all of our vessels are 100% recyclable.

Small batches means unique candles.
Our candles are made in very small batches of 6. While every effort is made to ensure consistency, each candle will be a little different.

We embrace imperfections around here.
It's common for 100% soy wax to be imperfect. You might notice uneven spots, slight discoloration, or minor imperfections. Because we don't use any additives or dyes, this is normal and doesn't affect the quality of your candle. (It's also proof that we aren't lying to you when we say our candles are all-natural!)
