Soy candles

Are an eco-friendly alternative to paraffin candles. They burn longer and donโ€™t contain the toxins that paraffin candles have. 

All-natural soy wax candles produce 95% less soot if burned properly, so that means less black soot on your walls, ceilings and furniture.

Our soy wax is bio-degradable and cleans up with hot soapy water, but never pour wax straight down your sink drain, it can clog.

First 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. Soy wax has a โ€œmemoryโ€and By allowing your candle to create itโ€™s initial memory burn will help create a full melt pool of wax, this increases the scent throw.

Wick tips

To prevent your soy candle from producing black soot, always trim your wick to 1/4โ€ before lighting. If the wick begins to have a large flame,or starts flickering, extinguish and let cool, re-trim wick and re-light. 

Our natural fiber wicks are self-trimming and are made to curl slightly when burning which help our candles to produce lower soot. At times a carbon mushroom may appear at the top of the wick, this is unburned carbon that has collected. If this happens to your candle, extinguish it,
let cool and trim the wick.

Scent tips

If you cannot smell the scent of the candle you are burning, leave the room for a few minutes, let your olfactory sense (our sense mechanism that allows us to smell) adjust. When you return you should be able to smell the fragrance. 

Our candles are highly fragrant, sometimes the homes we live in have large open spaces that combine many living areas. Some of our fragrances are bolder with a strong scent throw, and some are lighter and have been designed to achieve a soothing ambiance. In a large living spaces we suggest having an additional candle to achieve maximum scent throw if needed.
