A soy candle is made from soybean wax. Wax from a soybean is non-toxic, biodegradable and a renewable sustainable resource. A soy candle will burn cleaner, cooler, slower and more evenly. Soy candles produce far less soot than paraffin candles. In fact, the soot produced is 90% less and is white. For this reason, soy candles are the healthy alternative to a paraffin wax candle. Breathing toxic soot can be very unhealthy and will eventually cover nearby walls and furniture.
Yes, one of the fabulous benefits to using our candles is once the wax melts to a nice pool, you can extinguish the candle, carefully scoop the wax with our provided bamboo spoon and apply to the skin as a luxurious moisturizer. Soyinka a fabulous skin moisturizer and protectant. Soy contains vitamin E and antioxidant properties, both known for their hydrating power. The soy is cosmetic grade and our fragrances are also body safe.
We suggest you do not use the soy oil in sensitive areas, such as the face, however the candle is safe to use on the body. There is no need to remove the soy oil from your skin. Your skin will naturally absorb the rich soy oil. When using as a moisturizer we suggest you use our signature bamboo spoon to scoop up the melted soy oil.
Yes. Soy wax candles can actually accommodate more fragrance by-weight than paraffin or wax-based candles (10% vs. 6%). The scent of a candle comes from the pool of melted wax. Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin candles and consequently has a larger pool of melted wax to disperse the fragrance. Our candles have a high concentration of natural fragrance oils. We use a blend of synthetic and essential oils.
You should always trim the wick to 1/4" every time you light your candle. When not properly trimmed, the wicks of all candles can "mushroom", causing excessive flickering and/or smoke. Keeping your wick trimmed keeps this to a minimum and also makes your candle safer. Trimming also prevents your wick from curling back into the wax - a common problem with non-metal cored wicks. We use a cotton core lead-free wick
Soy wax cleans up very easily with mild soap and water.
It is best to burn the candle on a stable, protected, hard surface away from drafts and material that could catch fire. Our glass containers have a very heavy base that allows the base to keep cool and protect the furniture it is set upon. However, we suggest not leaving any candle unattended. When finished use our signature logo lid to cover the candle to turn it off every time.
Our 14oz. boxed candle has a burn time of approximately 80 hours. *Approximate longevity when burned correctly. Burn times vary depending on the location and conditions. Also keep in mind that if you use the candle as a moisturizer it will affect the burn time as you are using some of the soy oil that would normally solidify for the next burn time.
Absolutely! We pour our candles into drinking glasses so that they can be reused. Simply completely burn out your candle and remove the metal wick base. Wash the glass in water and soap.
