Soy wax is natural, biodegradable and water soluble and is free of phthaletes, parabens and parraffins. Soy has a low melting point, and as a result your Flame and Luxe candle will burn long and slow.
Candle Care 101:
First Time Use : When lighting your Flame and Luxe candle for the first time, allow the wax to liquefy all the way to the sides of the vessel. Soy has memory, so if your candle is extinguished prior to allowing a full melt pool, all future melt pools will not go past the first one (tunnelling).
Trim your Wicks : We suggest trimming your wick to 1/4" (6-8mm) before every use. A trimmed wick will get you a brighter, cleaner burn, as well as minimize soot. Too long of a wick can create smoke stains on the edge of the vessel. An untrimmed wick will also result in "mushrooming", creating a charcoaled mass at the end of the wick.
Candle Safety : Never leave a burning candle unattended or within reach of flammable objects, children, or pets and keep away from drafty areas. Do not burn more than 4 hours as the vessel can become very hot and possibly crack, which can be very dangerous. Do not burn your candle all of the way down. Discontinue burning your candle when the wax reaches one-half (1/2) inch remaining in the container.
Repurposing your glass candle vessel :
Your favourite scented candle is nearing the end, all it’s perfectly fragranced wax has vaporized over countless evenings of cozy enjoyment, and you’re left with just the empty vessel. A beautifully decorated, elegant container that you’re in love with almost as much as the scent it once produced.
In order to repurpose your empty glass vessel, your must first remove any wax residue. The simplest way is to fill the container with soap and hot water from your tap, let it sit for a minute, before scrubbing the inside clean. Voila!
But this leads to a particular conundrum: what do you do with the jar the candle came in once the candle is gone?
Empty vessels can be used as plant pots, pencil pots for your desk, a holder for your makeup brushes or a vase for flowers.
