200g Candle Jars
My candles are hand poured using Soy Wax. Soy wax contains nothing artificial and is non-toxic. Not only are there “green” advantages to choosing soy wax over a different type of candle wax, but soy wax also burns slower than paraffin wax, meaning you get a candle that lasts longer. While all candles emit some black soot while burning, candles made from soy wax burns cleaner and results in less soot. Soy wax is also healthier for you than Paraffin wax, which is made from petroleum oil and produces harmful by-products when burned or melted.
How to get the best out of your candle
The first burn
Always burn your candle for the first time for approx 3 hours, or until the top layer of wax has melted to the edge of the jar. Wax has a memory so this will ensure an even burn when next lighting.
Avoid draughty areas
Another way to make your candle last longer is to avoid draughty areas, as this means your candle will be consumed more rapidly.
Trim your wick between burns
Trimming your wick is very important. The longer the wick the quicker it will burn. It also prevents black smoke from occurring and ensures the glass isn't over heating. Trim the wick before every burn to about 1/4 of an inch - the same length as new.
Use the lid provided
We recommend using the lids provided to prevent dust from settling on the candle. If dust has settled, you can use a cotton pad to remove this from the top of the wax.
