Candle Care

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, 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 the edge of the container the first time you burn it before putting it out. This ensure 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 1 hour for every inch wide that the candle is. So if you have a 3 inch wide soy candle, you may need to burn it for at least 3 hours for a good melt pool. But no longer than 4 hours at a time. 

Speaking of melt pools...
This is where the scent is in scented soy candles. A good melt pool will give off the best fragrance throw. 1/4" deep for the melt pool is what I am for in my scented soy candles when the candle is burning.
