New Candle Range Coming Soon!

New Candle Range Coming Soon!

New candle range coming soon! Over the last few days on my social media platform, I’ve been sharing about my new soy candle range.  Each day I’ve shared information to talk about how it all happens. I’m excited after just over 4 years I’ve decided to bring my candle range back.

Finding the perfect wick 

Finding the perfect wick doesn’t just happen instantly. There’s many factors to take in when selecting your wick and lots of testing too. I’ve made candles in the past and mainly always went for wooden wick, but this time I wanted my whole range to be made with cotton wicks. So the testing process started around 8 weeks ago to find the perfect wick. I’m lucky as I’ve made candles in the past so finding that perfect wick and size is a little bit easier.

Selecting the perfect candle glass

Now finding your candle glass is just the same of finding your perfect wick. Every glass shape and size needs testing and again this process takes time. I’m really happy with the glass I’ve gone for and I can’t wait to show you too. My candle net weight is going to be 120g , now i May along the way test a bigger size. For now I’m sticking to just the one size.

Selecting the fragrance

Now another test which takes time as each scent needs testing and it doesn’t mean one wick size fits all as it doesn’t work like that. This is where most of the testing comes in and takes time and can’t be rushed. I’ve tested 5 fragrances which have passed so far these are…..

Myrrh & Tonka

Pink Sugar

Nenico

Filthy Gorgeous

Citronella

So 5 have been fully tested and made my list, but not all 5 will be up for grabs. More about that later on my business page, you just need to make sure that you’re interacting on my social media so you don’t miss out. I’m also currently testing another 6 fragrances, I won’t share these yet as it doesn’t mean all 6 will make it. This is why I test because it’s so important plus no testing means you won’t produce an excellent product!

 

Difference between scent throw in candles to wax melts 

So many of you are already addicted to my wax products. Now wax melts will always give off a stronger scent throw than a candle. Candles are more subtle because the flame only heats whats melted around the pool inside the glass. Whereas in a burner the tea lights heating the whole bowl of the tea light warmer which gets hotter, then giving off a good scent throw. You will be able to smell the scent of the candle you’re burning, but it won’t fill your whole room. Candles are more for a relaxing mood, for cosy nights in.

How to care for your candle

All our candles have been hand-poured with love using soy wax and fragrance oils. Our candle glasses and boxes are recyclable.

We do strongly urge you to follow all our care and safety precautions outlined below, which have been put in place to ensure that you get the very best from your candle.

  • Don’t leave the candle burning unattended. Place on a heat proof mat to protect your surface.
  • To prevent tunnelling please make sure you burn your candle for minimum of 3 and a maximum of 4 hours at anyone time.
  • Always keep the candle out of reach of children and pets.
  • Do not burn candles on or near anything that can catch fire.
  • Do not place candles in a draught.
  • Once extinguished please make sure the wick is stood up right ready for when you next light it.
  • Trim wick down to 5mm before lighting at each use.
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down. We strongly recommend leaving at least 5mm of wax in the jar.
  • Keep the wax pool clear and free of any debris to avoid flaring.
  • You can find further safety instructions on the base of all of our candles along with the scent name. For any queries, or anything you may be unsure about, please do get in touch!
