NEVER LEAVE UNATTENDED WHILE LIT!
Keep safe distance from fabrics and other flammable materials while lit.
WHEN TO TRIM YOUR WICK?
It is time to trim your wick if it begins to release puffs of smoke while burning or if the tip of the wick ‘mushrooms’ (grows in size or forms balls at the tips).
Avoid trimming your wick when it is cold because it is brittle when cool. I prefer to trim my wicks immediately before blowing them out in order to minimize the ‘blow out smoke’ that inevitably occurs when extinguishing.
If that seems daunting to you then trim immediately after extinguishing. Remember, soy is water soluble and will wipe easily from your scissors, not stick like paraffin!
HOW MUCH WICK TO TRIM?
A good height for exposed wick is ¼”. A shorter length may choke the flame and a longer one may smoke or become excessive or unsafe.
Our wicks are woven to curl over as they burn. Therefore, a good estimate with our candles is to cut your wick at the top of the curve, or highest point of the wick.
Trimming is only necessary if smoking or an excessive flame occurs.
HOW TO CLEAN UP SPILLS
Soy is a botanical product and is water soluble. It can be wiped easily from any hard surface and washed from fabrics with warm or, preferably, hot water and a gentle soap.
HOW DO I USE MY CANDLE AS A LOTION?
Now that’s the luxuriously easy part! Dip your finger into the melted wax pool, slowly, test it for temperature and you’ll find that soy wax, due to it’s low melt point, is only warm to the touch. Now, rub the moisturizing goodness of your favorite essential oil and our pesticide-free natural wax directly onto your skin. Please read our list of benefits and contraindications to inform yourself of each oil’s beneficial properties or any you should avoid due to pregnancy or sensitivities.
