Why should I choose candle made in Soy wax and not Paraffin wax?
Paraffin Wax is a by-product of the petrol industry, and is widely believed to give off toxic fumes and soot when burned. Soy Wax is considered by many to be one of the safest and environmentally friendly options for current use in candles, Soy Wax also burn at cooler temperature hence cleaner burning, with fewer CO2 emissions in comparison to candles made of paraffin wax. Soy wax also lasts up to 50% longer in burning time over paraffin wax candles of the same size, making it better value for money when buying or making candles.
What is the recommended time to burn the candle to get the maximum scent?
Before lighting your soy candle, try to trim the wick to approximately 0.7cm height. The scent throw comes from the melt pool, which is the amount of melted wax that forms around the flame. To achieve a full melt pool allowed 2-3 hours (for our medium size candle). Try not to burn your candle over four(4) hours.
There are spots/shadow on candle jar, is this normal?
This is called “wet spots”, it is referring to the spots or patches in container candles that appear to have air, or a wet spot showing through the glass or transparent container and the candle wax. Soy candles are very susceptible to temperature variations, wet spots are extremely common and it does not affect the quality of the candle
Why is my soy candle 'sweating'?
This is not a defect but rather the result of temperature change in the soy. Soy wax is sensitive to extreme temperature variations. Soy wax will sometimes release excess oil but it does not affect the quality of the candle in any way and will not usually reappear after the initial burn. Simply wipe the excess oil off with tissue or paper towel
Why does my soy candle look dried out and frosty?
You may notice some variations in the color of soy candles, especially. This is called “frosting”. It looks like small, whitish crystals that form on the top of the wax or the sides of the jar. No, your candle is not drying out. Frosting is a natural characteristic of soy, especially candles that use 100% soy wax with no other additives. Frosting does not effect the scent throw or the burning properties of the candle..
