Soy Candle Tips

Burn candles on a flat level heat resistant surface and out of drafts.

Glass containers may become hot. Always burn candle on a protected surface or coaster, and avoid moving lit candles.

Burn your soy candles until a pool of melted wax completely forms across the top. This will ensure an even burn all the way down the container. (In other words, to avoid the 'hollow core' look, please burn your soy candle for hours equaling the diameter of the container. Example: if the wax is 2 3/4" across the top of the container, burn for a minimum of 2 hours 45 minutes at a time - 3 hours maximum.)

Discontinue burning container candles when there is 1/4 inch of wax left in the bottom. Remove remaining soy wax and dispose of in the trash can or use for cuticle/massage. The container can be cleaned up easily with soap and water! Please reuse the tumbler or recycle it.

Do not place soy candles in the refrigerator or in direct sunlight.

Damaged containers should not be used. Please discontinue use if the container is cracked.

To extinguish, DO NOT BLOW OUT. Gently dip the wick into the melted soy wax, lift the wick back up and straighten.

Please allow a soy wax candle to completely cool and harden before relighting. Prior to re-use, trim wick to 1/4 inch and remove spent wick. Then light and enjoy your soy candle!

Never burn candles unattended and place beyond the reach of children, pets and flammable objects.

Sachet Tips

  • Our natural air freshener sachets contain essential oils that could irritate the skin, as they have not been diluted. If irritation occurs, rub a drop of vegetable oil over the inflamed area.
  • If the scent seems to be fading: place the muslin sachet bag between layers of newspaper or an old towel; with your hand (or a rolling pin or can) roll the bag around a couple of times to release more scent.
