ARE GRACE+LOVE CANDLES MADE FROM SOY WAX? DO THEY CONTAIN PARAFFIN OR CHEMICALS?

We care about you and your lungs, so we use high quality ingredients including soy wax, phthalate free fragrance and lead-free cotton wicks.  Soy wax has numerous health and environmental benefits including:

  • Soy wax burns clean with no toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants. Unlike paraffin wax, our soy candles contain no petrol-soot that release toxins into the air and blacken walls or ceilings

  • Longer lasting burn – Soy wax burns cooler which means you can enjoy your soy candle much longer than a paraffin wax

  • Derived from a renewable resource (soybeans)Biodegradable and easy to clean-up with soap and water

  • Supports American Farmers

ARE THERE BURNING OR CARE INSTRUCTIONS?

Trim your wick to 1/4” before lighting. The 1st time you burn your candle, allow it to create a full and even wax pool across the entire surface.  Short burns will create tunneling in the wax later. Do not leave a burning candle unattended. Keep away from pets and children. Burn on heat resistant surfaces.  Keep out of direct sunlight to prevent discoloration or yellowing

WHY DID MY CANDLE "TUNNEL" AND NOT BURN TO THE EDGE OF THE JAR?

The most common reason a candle tunnels is because it didn't burn long enough the first time it was lit.  The first light of a candle is very important to ensure it burns evenly.

WHY DOES MY CANDLE HAVE A BUMPY SURFACE AFTER I BURNED IT?

100% soy wax naturally solidifies with a rough surface on occasion. Don’t worry, the next time you light the candle, it will create a liquid wax pool that will fill your space with the beautiful fragrance.
