The Scented Candle Studio

Love Your Candle

At The Scented Candle Studio, we use natural, ethically sourced soy wax, which is made from hydrogenated soybean oil, which is naturally biodegradable. Soybean comes from a renewable source unlike paraffin wax which contains petroleum.
Soy wax is non-toxic and burns cleaner with no petrol-carbon soot which can blacken walls, ceiling, and furniture. This can also contaminate the air in your home by adding toxic carcinogens into the air that you breathe. Sometimes you may see white marks on a soy candle, this is called frosting or bloom and is a normal characteristic of natural waxes. It will not affect the burning process in any way and is confirmation your candle has been made using 100% soy wax.

Instructions for Use

  • When burning your candle for the first time it is important you give it a ‘memory’ burn. Your candle should burn for 1 hour for each inch of its diameter. For example, our large tins are 3” in diameter so should be burnt for an initial 3 hours to establish a memory. This allows the candle to establish a full melt pool, increasing the scent throw. If your candle is not given a proper memory burn and is burnt for a shorter time, it will core down the centre, a good scent throw will not be achieved, and you will be left with wax on the sides of the container with a tunnel effect
  • After each use, allow you candle to cool and harden before re-lighting, and discontinue burning your candle when there is a quarter of an inch of wax left in the bottom
  • Keep the wick trimmed to ¼” (5mm)
  • Try to use a wick dipper or candle snuffer to extinguish your candle so you avoid the smoke that occurs when you blow out a candle
  • Do not place the candle in direct sunlight as extreme temperatures will cause discoloration.
    Upon cooling, your candle may appear ‘bumpy’ on the top, this is a natural and normal characteristic of all soy wax
