Candle Burning Tips
To maximize your candle’s scent and burn time, it’s recommended that you trim the wick on your candle every two hours down to 1/8″, and to burn the candle four to five hours at a time. A longer wick creates a larger flame, which melts the wax faster than the wick burns away. When you don’t trim the wick, and the longer your candle burns, the larger the flame will get and the faster the wax will melt. Keeping the wick trimmed and burning your candle four to five hours at a time slows the process so you get a longer burn time and a better scent.
Additionally, burning your candle for four to five-hour increments ensures that the wax burns all the way to the edge of the container. The melted wax is what gives off the candle’s scent, so this also helps maximize your candle’s scent. It also prevents your candle from “tunneling” which is when a hole gets burnt down the center of the candle, leaving a ring of unmelted wax along the outside of the container. Tunneled candles typically don’t give off as much scent.

Why Soy Candles?
Many readily available candles are made with paraffin wax, which is refined from crude oil and burns “dirty” with petrol-carbon soot. On the other hand, soy wax candles burn “clean” with no petrol-carbon soot. Additionally, soybean wax is a renewable resource and burns slower than paraffin wax, so your candles will last much longer.
