What's The Difference Between Soy And Paraffin Wax?

Soy wax is derived from natural soybeans. Paraffin wax comes from petroleum, oil shale, and coal. Soy wax is a clean-burning alternative to paraffin wax.

How Often Should I Trim The Wick?

Always trim the wick every time before lighting a candle. First, snip the burnt end of the wick to reduce it to about ¼ an inch. Also, after every 4-6 hours of burning, put out the candle, and allow it to cool before trimming the winning. Afterwards, you can light the candle again. Trimming prevents smoking and prolongs the candle's life by up to 25%.

How Do I Get The Candle To Last Longer?

To get the best burn out of your candles and have them last longer, here are three things you can do to help extend the life of the candle:

  • Keep your wicks trimmed to 1/4 inch at all times.
  • Avoid putting the candle near vents, fans or drafts that may move the wick during the burn.
  • Give your candle a “full” burn to allow the wax to melt from edge to edge in the container.

    What If The Candle Gets Dirty With Dust?

    Depending on how you store your candles there is a chance of dust or dirt getting on the top of the wax. Before burning, remove any dust or debris from the top to avoid any disturbance of the flame. You can do this by using a microfiber cloth or old pantyhose/tights to clean the top of the wax. Do not use any flammable cleaning solutions when cleaning.

    How Long Should I Burn The Candle?

    What If The Candle Looks Frosty On The Top?

    Our candles are made with pure soy wax, and natural soy blends with coconut wax. The frosting is a crystalline-like appearance, which is a natural characteristic of soy, on the top and sides of your candle. Frosting on candles is a way to tell you to have a natural soy wax candle.

    While it may not look aesthetically pleasing, it does not affect the quality or burn of the candle.

    What Are Some Of The Benefits Of Using Soy?

    Some of the benefits of using soy wax include:

    • Soy wax is vegetable-based wax and are more sustainable.
    • Soy wax contains no toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants and is safe for humans, animals, and the environment.
    • Clean burning with minimal smoke and soot.

    What's The Difference Between 1 Wick Vs. Multiple Wicks?

    The main difference comes down to preference, room size, and scent intensity. A single wick offers a more steady, subtle hot throw, and is ideal for smaller spaces.
    Having multiple wicks is a great option for your candle experience.

    Having multiple wicks not only provides a stronger fragrance throw and brighter glow, but it also helps minimize the tunneling effects that sometimes occur with candle wax not being fully melted.

    Multiple wicks help to fill larger rooms with more scents and are perfect for larger spaces.

      What's The Difference Between Wood and Cotton Wicks?
