Tips & Safety

WHY SOY CANDLES?

#1 Soy candles are natural 
since they’re made from vegetable oil (soybeans). On the other hand, paraffin candles are made from petroleum oil. As a result, soy wax candles do not increase the CO2 level in the atmosphere like paraffin candles do. Furthermore, soy candles do not require chemicals to scent them.

#2 Soy candles burn 50% longer
than regular candles. Therefore, even though soy wax candles are sometimes more expensive than paraffin wax candles to buy, they are still more cost-effective in the long run. Furthermore, soy candles burn evenly, leaving almost no excess wax on the sides of the jar.

#3 Soy candles burn cleaner 
than regular paraffin candles do. As a result, they don’t produce much black soot like paraffin candles do. Candle soot is more of a nuisance than you might realize. If you burn a lot of candles, over time it can discolour your walls & furniture and stain the edges of your carpet!

#4 Soy candles are non-toxic
since they are made of vegetable oil, have a lower melting point (so the wax itself doesn’t get as hot), produce negligible amounts of soot, and release no known carcinogens into the air. Compared to paraffin candles, soy wax candles are much healthier for humans, pets, and the environment. Plus, they clean up easier (just use soap and water) when the wax is spilled.

#5 The scent from soy candles is much stronger
and more pleasant than the scent from paraffin wax candles. Because of the lower melting point of soy wax, there is a larger amount of the liquid wax pool around the candle wick itself. It is from this liquid wax pool and the wick itself that the essential oils evaporate into the atmosphere.

CANDLE CARE

The first time you burn your candle, allow it to burn for at least 2 hours, until the whole top is liquid with wax. This will help your candle burn more evenly next time. Always centre the wick, trim to 6mm and remove any wick debris before burning. Place the candle on its wooden lid on a flat surface away from flammable materials and draughts while burning, and after burning replace the timber lid.

DIFFUSER CARE

Place the sticks that came with your reed diffuser into the bottle to absorb the essential oils. Flip sticks so that the "dry" side of the sticks is now closest to the bottle and the saturated end is in the air. Place unsaturated (dry) end of the sticks into the bottle. Let your reed diffuser naturally permeate your space. Reed diffusers will continue to evaporate into the air, creating a subtle and luxurious scent.

To refresh the fragrance of the reed diffuser, simply repeat steps above.
