How can I get the most out of my candle?

Maximize your candle’s burn time by burning it long enough (3-4 hours) to allow the wax to melt to the edge of the container.  This will prevent “tunneling”, where the candle burns a tunnel down the middle of the candle without burning to the edge of the container. Allowing the wax to melt to the edge of the container is especially important for the first burn of a new candle.
Gently pinch the ash / burnt wood off the top of the wick before re-lighting for optimal wick performance.

Why soy/coconut wax?

We choose soy/coconut wax because it burns cleanly (candle waxes containing paraffin, a petroleum by-product, release toxins & soot when they burn). Conveniently, this wax also tends to have a longer burn time than other candle waxes due to its low melting temperature.

Can I reuse the container?

When your container is ready to be cleaned out, the residual wax at the bottom of the container and the small metal wick clip should be removed and discarded (usually a spoon works well to gently loosen the wax and clip). Once most of the remaining wax has been removed, the container can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher.
