Candle Care 101:
When burning your soy candle, always burn until the soy candle liquefies to the edge of the container. Not letting the candle liquefy to the edge will result in tunneling and poorly affect your candle burning time.
You may notice some mushrooming of the wick. This is completely normal for the natural wicks that we use. Always trim the wick before each use, keep wick trimmed to 1/8 inch for the best soy candle burning results. Do not allow wick trimmings to fall into your wax melt pool.
We recommend extinguishing your soy candle by using a candle snuffer or by bending the wick over into the wax. This will eliminate smoke from the wick. Always re-center the wick for proper burning the next time you light your soy candle. This will extend your candle burning time over the life of the candle.
Always read, follow and make sure you fully understand the caution and warning label on the bottom of your soy candle.
You can burn your soy candles too long. The maximum recommended burn time is 4 hours per burn. Burning longer than the recommended time is also dangerous, especially when combined with improper wick trimming. Although we use heat-safe glass, an improperly trimmed wick can create a high flame and temperature forming a deep melt pool and fatigue the glass. Soy wax cleans up easily with soap and water, but remember it is still a wax and should not be poured down the drain.
Tips for burning soy candles
Although soy candles produces less sooth than paraffin candles you should not burn too many candles in one small room. Make sure that there’s enough ventilation in the room. Before lighting the soy candle the wick should be trimmed to about 1/8". Otherwise the soy candle will smoke and burn too fast. When you are trimming your wicks make sure to NOT leave the trimmings in the candle wax, as they will produce soot.
Keep burning soy candles away from children, pets and flammable materials. Never leave burning candles unattended.
Soy candles should not be put for too long time in direct sunlight to prevent the color from fading.
Do not place soy candles next to each other. Allow enough space -minimum 1/4"- between the candles.
Allow soy candle to cool and harden before relighting.
To extinguish a soy candles use a special wick dipper. This will avoid the formation of unhealthy smoke. Use the end of a wick dipper to push the wick into the pool of wax and then pull the wick up.
Do not allow the flame to touch the side of the glass jar. The jar may become too hot and may burst

This is an Online Boutique. I use only Natural Steam Pressed Essential Oils, & Natural Waxes. I started making candle's at home in Los Angeles Ca. When I started making candle's in 2014 I went out looking for Natural Oils, but couldn't find them. All I could find were Synthetic scents mixed with Parrafin's and other additives. I quickly realized this was not healthy for me or my family. So, I did a great deal of research, to my surprise a large number of candle's out there were being made with these toxic products mainly because they are cheaper. Natural steamed pressed oils are so much more expensive. There are no laws to imprinting ingredients on the labels and no laws against using Parrafin, synthetic or Petroleum based candle's. The Resin Décor on the bottom is toxic on the other hand, but it's completely dry and doesn't effect the wax at all. It takes about 4 to 8 days for the Resin to dry completely depending on the size. I mix two liquid chemical compounds together making the Resin permanent, and encapsulating the Décor. Some of my Artsy Candles might come out looking slightly different than the ones on the photo due to the colors of the Essential oil or slightly different Decor.
I love the scent of a newly made Candle, as oppose to one that's been sitting on a shelf for months. I don't need to turn them on in order to smell it. As soon as the wax dries, I wrap it up and ship it out to you.
Everyone who walks into my apartment immediately notices the Therapeutic Aroma of my Candles. The Natural Wax (Coconut, Apricot, or Soy) we use is creamy and soft that I sometimes use it as a body cream. The wicks are made of cotton and do not have lead in them. Incase you didn't know Parrafin is a white or colorless soft solid derivable from petroleum which is hazardous to your health. When I'm done using the candle, I wash it and use it as a Flower Vase Centerpiece. Or, I refill them with a different scent. You can do that too.
