Wick Size Matters
Most people simply don't know how important it is to use the right wick & how keeping it trimmed will keep a steady flame. We're going to help you understand this better, so that you'll enjoy your candles longer & have them continue to burn clean as intended.
If a candle is made with the wrong size wick you can experience all sorts of issues. The worst problem would be a candle that "tunnels", that's when a candle doesn't burn the wax on the sides of the container. When this happens it's because the wick is too small & your left with a lot of extra wax that is not used, in turn wasted money! It's also a waste of money when the wick is too large & burns more wax quickly, leading to a shorter burn time & enjoyment. We test our candles to ensure this won't happen!
A tip when burning candles is to let it create a FULL "melt pool" the first time it's lit. By doing this it allows the wax to easily remelt evenly each & every time. To achieve this you just have to allow it to burn long enough to melt the wax from edge to edge of the container. To keep a candle cleaner only burn it for 2 hours at a time. It is EXTREMELY important to make sure you keep those wicks trimmed! We recommend trimming to 1/4 inch before the candle gets lit. Keeping it trimmed will reduced the amount of carbon build up, which also will make the candle last much longer along with the scent. Be careful however to not OVER trim the wick.
Production & Imperfections
We start all of our products with quality base ingredients which is important when determining the quality of our end products. We also look for the best price available in order to keep our prices affordable for you. All equipment used is thoroughly cleaned/disinfected to avoid any contamination, keeping our products stable long term & most importantly keeping you safe.
Once we find the base ingredients we need for our products we start creating. All products have a specific product procedure that we follow, ensuring our products remain as uniform as possible from batch to batch. Keep in mind that as a result of being handcrafted they will vary slightly in appearance. We do our best to always line up labels and fill containers as full as we see fit, depending on the container. However, please understand that our candles are filled by sight and poured by hand.
100% Soy wax is especially prone to having "imperfections" something you may notice in our candles. One of those is "frosting" which refers to the appearance of white crystal like formations, often seen on the outside and on top of the candle. Another common one is "sink holes" which refers to holes that form, as the candle cools. You usually will see sink holes in the area around the wick and you won't see this on the outside of candle. Lastly, you may notice "wet spots" which refers to the wax pulling away from the container as it cools. You may notice this especially in winter as the wax contracts and shrinks due to the cold. None of these "imperfections" change the quality or it's ability to burn and perform as expected. While we put a tremendous amount of focus on the quality and appearance of our products we don't stress over these "imperfections" rather we like to refer to them as "unique characteristics".
