  • Why should I trim the wick and only burn your candles for 3-4 hours at a time?
    These are common instructions and good practices for any candle and are meant to prolong a candle’s burn time. Burning your candle for 3-4 hours at a time ensures that the wax melts all the way to the edge of the container. The melted wax (not the flame) is what gives off your candle’s scent, so this will maximize your candle’s scent when lit.
  • How fragrant are your candles?
    We find that our candle's fragrance fill a medium-size room nicely.
  • What makes an all-natural soy wax candle different?
    While paraffin wax is refined from crude oil, soy wax is made from soybeans- a completely renewable resource. Soy candles are better for the environment and your health & they are non-toxic and burn cleaner than paraffin wax.
