Soy candle wax has what’s called a memory. That means that when you burn a soy candle and then extinguish it, the next time you burn it, the soy candle wax will melt across as far as it did the first time. This is why it is so important to allow soy candles to burn all the way across to the edge of the container the first time you burn it before putting it out. This ensures that your soy candle does not “tunnel” as it burns, leaving wax along the sides of the container. A good rule of thumb is to burn your candle 1hr for every inch wide that the candle is. So, if you have a 3inch wide soy candle, you may need to burn it for at least 3 hours for a good melt pool. Keeping your wick trimmed to about 1/4in. will also keep your soy candles from smoking and causing soot. And most importantly, keep your soy candles away from anything flammable, and out of reach of children and pets.
I have decided to leave my candles scent free. When buying essential oil candles, you must be careful that no added chemicals are used to help with scent throw or oil mixing with the wax. If you would like to add scent to your candle, I would suggest adding your own choice of essential oil to the melting pool. That way you can control the strength of the scent, and you know exactly what you are breathing! Enjoy your candle and remember when the wax is gone simply rinse with hot water to use your ceramic piece. All the glazes are food safe and can be washed in the dishwasher.
