Frequently asked questions

How do you burn a Soy candle?

Soy candles are different than other candles. Soy wax is softer than other waxes and requires special treatment. Because it is so soft, soy should be used in close fitting containers. For floating candles, the water itself serves as the container. The first time you light a soy candle sets the stage for the life of that candle. Soy wax has a melting memory, and requires that you let the entire surface liquefy, or pool, to ensure even burning. If a soy candle is 3 inches in diameter, yet only 1 inch across melts when first lit, the wax won’t melt outside of that 1 inch pool during subsequent lightings, causing “tunneling” when burnt, and can make the candle hard to keep lit. We recommend extinguishing the candle when the pool gets over ½ inch deep to extend the life.

Why Soy?

Soy is:

  • non toxic
  • user-friendly
  • clean burning
  • biodegradable
  • renewable
  • natural
  • burns longer
  • grown in the U.S.A.
