Creating Soy Candles to make your home warm and comforting

My name is Stephanie and I'm from Gloucester MA. I started my candle business in October when I had to leave my job to homeschool my children. I can honestly say that I am thankful for this opportunity and I absolutely love doing what I am doing now. Candles!

Candle Warning and Tips

If your candle appears to be burning off center you can correct this by repositioning the wick slightly. To do so, extinguish the candle and allow wax to cool until slushy; using a wick dipper gently guide the wick back to center or toward the side that needs more heat before relighting.

For best performance, burn candle until wax melts evenly across container, not exceeding 4 hrs.

Discontinue use of candle when only 1/2 inch of wax remains in bottom of jar.

Choose a candle size that is appropriate for your room size.

Always burn your candles on a heat resistant surface. Keep burning candle away from curtains, walls, cats & flowers, or any item that could catch fire.

Never put a topper on a newly lit candle

Candle Burning Instructions

When you light your candle for the first time, it is very important to allow approximately one hour of

burn time per inch of surface diameter, or until your candle has a complete melt pool, before extinguishing. (A melt pool is when your candle melts from edge to edge of your jar) It will keep your candle from tunneling down the middle.


If you do not keep the wicks trimmed, problems can occur. All candle wicks can “mushroom” at the top, causing

excessive flickering and/or smoke. Keeping your wicks trimmed keeps this to a minimum and also makes you

your candle safer. Trimming also prevents your wick from curling back into the wax. Use a sharp wick trimmer

or scissors to trim the wick. Using a dull tool will split the threads causing the wick to 'mushroom' excessively.

Our Soy candles are designed to be trimmed to 1/4” before each burn. By keeping your wick trimmed, it

will prolong your candle life. (Times may vary depending on room temperature and environment.)

Care instructions

You may have heard people say "Soy candles are 100% soot free". Although soy wax candles are virtually soot free when burned properly, no candle is 100% soot free. If you see that your candle is accumulating soot in your jar, extinguish the flame and trim your wick. Remember: Soot can be prevented by keeping your wick trimmed to 1/4 inch
