About hand poured soy candles

These hand poured soy candles are not going to be identical due to every candle being hand poured - part of the beauty is the fact that they are all different.

If you see what looks like a 'bubble' or wet spot through the glass this isn't a fault with the candle, it is simply a natural process with soy wax that when it is cold sometimes it pulls away from the container.  This does not affect the performance of the candle in any way and when the candle is lit and warmed up the bubble will simply disappear.

With soy wax you may see blooming or a frosted appearance on the top of the candle, this again is one of the unique attributes of soy wax and again does not affect the quality of the candle.

Remember, always let the candle burn to a full wax melt pool - where the liquid wax reaches one side of the container to the other.  In doing this, you create a memory burn and the candle will always burn straight down using as much of the wax as possible.  If you don't allow the wax to get to a full melt pool the candle will tunnel using only the amount of wax it can 'remember' burning the previous time. If you cannot burn the candle for 2-3 hours, use a smaller one until you have the time to enjoy your beautiful candle.

Remember to trim the wick before relighting this will help prevent the candle from smoking and always remember to replace the lid to prevent dust settling on the wax.

If you follow this advice you shouldn't have any problems with your candle, but it you do simply drop me an email.
