Frequently asked questions
Do I need to trim the wick every time I light my candle?

By trimming the wick, you are able to prevent a large flame which can be dangerous. You can also prevent soot, the black cloud and black residue that can build up on the sides of the vessel or on the top layer of the candle.

What is your candle made out of?
Our candles begin with an all natural coconut wax sourced from a small family business in Glendora, California. We only use natural essential oils and premier phthalate free fragrance oils in our candles to ensure you're burning a clean and fragrant candle. Our wicks are lead-free and zinc-free and are comopsed of paper cotton wicks, and the adhesives used to attach the wicks to the vessels are acid free, non-toxic.
Why is my wick moving when it's getting closer to the bottom?
Due to the nature of our candles, we do not use permanent adhesives because of its hazards. Many permanent adhesives contain toxic chemicals that can be cancerous, so we do not use permanent adhesives in our candles. The adhesives we use is non-toxic, which in nature do not permanently stick to the vessel at extremely high temperatures.
What do I do when the wicks move?
If you are experiencing wick displacement, simply move the wick to the center of the vessel using a thin wooden stick, i.e. toothpicks or barbeque sticks, and press down. Also make sure your candle is on a leveled surface to avoid further wick displacement.
