Our candles are made with a custom blend of American-grown soy wax and food-grade refined paraffin wax. This give us all the attributes of both waxes and produces candles that are clean-burning, beautifully colored, and richly scented. It also allows our candles to cure faster and endure warmer shipping temperatures. Even when the wax is melted and cooled, our soy blend candles retain their smooth and creamy finish, making them lovely to behold whether burning or not.
To get the best burn from your candle, try to have 2-4 hours available to you when burning your candle for the first time. This allows the wax to melt and spread properly and produces the highest amount of fragrance in future burns. Candles do have memory, so if you burn a candle for a very brief time initially and the wax has not spread sufficiently, the next time you burn it the candle will probably not burn past the point of its original spread. This is called “tunneling,” and it is a phenomenon that all good candle makers hate. It not only affects the fragrance strength, but it wastes a good deal of wax.
We offer three different collections of soy candles. Our signature jar candles come in beautiful colored glass calypso jars with cork tops. Two different sizes of calypso jar candles are available–12 ounce and 16 ounce. Not many candle companies use these jars, as to obtain them can be difficult.For those of you who prefer a sleek, modern look, we also offer traditional silver candle tins in non–traditionalsizes–11 ounce and 17 ounce.
