Frequently asked questions

What products go into our repurposed wine bottle candles?


Only 100% soy wax and essential and fragrance oils (which are Phthalate free) go into our candles. The wicks are HTP flat braid wick possessing intertwined thin paper fibers or Cherry Wood sourced and manufactured in the USA from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-Certified Mills. No bad stuff here!




How do you properly burn a soy candle?


The soy wax produces zero petro-soot than traditional candles made from paraffin. Burn one hour for every inch of your candle's diameter (maximum of 4 hours) to obtain a melt-pool of 1/4 inch, which will produce best scent throw. If you burn your candles for shorter periods of time it is likely that the wax pool will burrow down the centre of the candle rather than burn evenly across the width of the candle jar. Once this effect has started it is then very difficult to use all of the wax and it is possible that the wax will ‘drown’ the wick. Keep the wick trimmed to between ⅛ and ¼ inch. If the candle begins to smoke, or if the flame height is greater than 1½ inches, gently blow out the candle, allow the wick and wax to cool, and trim the wick by gently running your finger across the top of it. Remove all wick trimmings before relighting.




What can I do with my candle when there is no more wax left?


Your wine bottle vessel still has years of life left in it. The soy wax comes out easily with a little hot water and a paper towel. You can put a plant in it, pop your pens or brushes in it!




How do I properly burn a wood wick candle?


The wood wick produces a flame slightly larger than cotton wicks. However, if trimmed properly, a wood wick creates a cleaner burn with less soot residue on the sides of the jar. Never let the wick burn for longer than 4 hours. If you burn your candles for shorter periods of time it is likely that the wax pool will burrow down the centre of the candle rather than burn evenly across the width of the candle jar. Once this effect has started it is then very difficult to use all of the wax and it is possible that the wax will ‘drown’ the wick. Keep the wick trimmed to between ⅛ and ¼ inch. If the candle begins to smoke, or if the flame height is greater than 1½ inches, gently blow out the candle, allow the wick and wax to cool, and trim the wick by gently running your finger across the top of it. Remove all wick trimmings before relighting.
