Soy Wax Burning
“SO! I’ve bought my first soy wax candle but after I burn it it doesn’t have a smooth top anymore! What happened?” This is completely common with soy wax candles. Since soy wax is completely natural and does not have multiple chemical ingredients keeping it in order, it will look that way after burning! It does not affect the performance of your candle. Just remember, you are burning something 100% natural and organic, it is not supposed to be perfect. Unfortunately, most soy wax candles are not as strong as paraffin wax candles! However, soy wax candles still create a very strong aroma that lights the room in such a natural healthy way!
Ways for you to get the best out of your soy wax candle!
Here are some very efficient ways to get the best out of your soy wax candles!
- Burn baby burn! Whenever you burn your candle for the first time, burn it long enough so that the wax is completely melted! This means whenever you light your candle for the first time, plan to light it for a long time (approx. 1 ½ - 3 hours)
- Trim your wicks! Grab scissors and trim the mushrooms before you burn all candles! This creates too big of flames especially for double wicked candles. This also creates a lot of unnecessary black soot around the candle.
- Adjust your space! You should determine where you place your candle based off of the size that you buy! For example, our 6oz hexagon candles should be placed either in a bathroom or small bedroom. However, our 17oz 2 wick candles should be in an open kitchen or living room space! If you burn your small candles in a very open space, it will not smell as strong and so on.
Just a few tips to keep in mind! Whether this post makes you purchase our candles or not, the next time you buy candles, I hope that you choose the healthier alternative! Give yourself the best in life, even candles! Have a great day and thank you so much for reading!
