Candle Facts & Care

Soy Wax Candle Facts:


Soy Wax is a completely natural renewal resource.

Soy Waxes are non-toxic, biodegradable, and clean burning.

Soy Waxes are completely free of animal derived substances and are not tested on animals.

Soy Wax burns without creating the soot or smoke unlike other Paraffin brands or soy blends.

Soy Wax burns cooler than Paraffin Wax, therefore increasing your candles life by burning for longer-up to 50% longer! Soy Wax has a lower melt point so remember to keep your soy candle out of direct sunlight as this may cause it to “sweat”. If this happens, remove your candle from the heat source and allow to cool. It will quickly return to its normal state.

Soy Wax tends to have a “rustic” look after the melt pool has cooled. This is due to the natural makeup of the wax and in no way affects the way your candle will burn.

Soy Wax can be cleaned from surfaces with hot soap and water, but remember although it is bio-degradable, it is wax! Avoid pouring down your drains.

Each candle is made from scratch, by hand, in Middle River, Cape Breton.


Wicks and Fragrances: 


Wicks are made from natural fibers and are lead-free.

All Fragrance Oils used are Paraben free and do not contain any of the Phthalates which are considered harmful.

Fragrance Oils are products containing man made fragrance ingredients, chemical compounds, and sometimes natural ingredients.


Candle Care Instructions:


When lighting a soy candle for the 1st time, allow the wax to melt all the way to the sides of the container. Depending on the container size, this should take around 1-3 hours.

Failure to do this will often cause “tunneling” which will limit the life of your new soy candle.

Soy wax does not burn as hot as paraffin wax, so soy wax candles require a thicker wick, which does not burn 100% and needs to be trimmed regularly.

Aim to trim your wick to about ¼”/6-8mm before you re-light your candle. This will ensure a long-lasting candle, minimize soot and remove any mushrooming of carbon on the end of the wick.

Candles should not be burned for more than 4 hours at a time. It is recommended that after burning for 4 hours, your candles be extinguished, allowed to cool for at least 3-4 hours, and trimmed before relighting. Allowing the candle to cool and solidify is not only a safety factor, but will also help your candle live its fullest burn-life. Burning candles for too long creates too much heat and an unstable wick making it a fire hazard. This also leads to extra carbon build up, soot, and the building up of extreme heat that will drastically shorten the overall burn time of your candle.

Keep burning candles free from drafts such as open windows and fans.

Ensure that your candle is placed on a flat surface.

Keep candles away from anything flammable, and out of the reach of children and pets

Please remember the candles are hand poured, not massed produced-and although every effort is made to ensure consistency, every candle will be a little different.

When using soy wax candles, sometimes you will notice darker patches or “wet” spots in your container candles. This is not a fault, simply a small blemish where the wax has not adhered to the glass 100%.

The top of your candle may also appear slightly uneven, this is also a sign of natural soy wax being hand poured.

I hope you enjoy your soy wax candle!
