Citrus Woods Candle
Citrus Woods has a beautiful warm, woodsy, citrusy scent that reminds me of Fall. It is an all-natural, hand-poured, sox wax aromatherapy candle topped with herbs, flowers and Carnelian crystals for courage and strength.
Directions- How to Properly Burn your Candle:
At minimum, plan to burn your candle until the wax achieves a full melt pool, or reaches the edge of the container. This is especially important on the first burn. This avoids creating a tunnel down the middle of the candle. This initial burn may take 1-2 hours depending on the size of your candle. It is best to burn a candle for no more than 4 hours at a time in order to increase its longevity. Ensure that the wick is trimmed to ¼ inch at all times. Too large a wick will burn through the candle faster. You can use nail trimmers to trim the wick if you don’t have a wick trimmer. Burn time on an 8 ounce candle is about 40-50 hours.
Oil: Pure essential oil only. The essential oils used in this candle are 100% Pure Sweet orange (Citrus sinensis), Siberian fir (Abies sibirica), Clove Bud (Eugenia casryophyllata), Cederwood (Juniperus virginiana) and Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum). Soy wax and Hemp wick. No artificial fragrances, dyes, paraffins, phthalates, parabens, or other additives.
This candle is made with 100% USA grown soy wax.
The wick it made with the purest organic natural hemp fibers. Hemp twisted into twine and coated with food grade, 100% natural beeswax.
Each candle is hand poured and unique. No two candles will be the same because we even hand apply every herb and crystal topping making each candle a work of art. There is no perfection in art and there is no perfection in hand made products.
We use Soy wax which is longer lasting, burns cleaner than paraffin wax, it is biodegradable and will hold the fragrance longer than other waxes. There are no toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants created from my soy wax or our hemp wicks.
Why Soy Wax?
Burns clean unlike other waxes such as paraffin blends. Many soy wax makers use additives or stabilizers to make their products more aesthetically pleasing. There are no toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants created from my soy wax or hemp wick.
Soy candles are long lasting. They burn at a lower temperature than paraffin wax, which means they last about 30-50% longer.
Soy is biodegradable and 100% water soluble. It is easier to clean wax spills and clean out candle containers for re-use.
Stronger smelling! Soy can hold higher fragrance load than other waxes.
Stimulates the American Economy. The soy used in my shop is made from 100% US grown soybeans.
Things to remember when ordering a 100% pure soy candle from our shop: All candles will vary in shape, color, texture and amount. This is because they are poured in very small batches and are handmade, so each candle is unique and they vary batch to batch! You may notice some “flaws” in your candle. There may be areas that appear “wet,” or where the wax pulls away from the container. There may also be “wells,” or what looks like “frost” on your candle, this generally happens after the candle burns and re-hardens. Rest-assured, these are all part of creating a 100% natural soy candle and are how you know you got a pure product! These imperfections are usually fixed with the addition of additives, such as paraffins or stearin. But since our products do not contain any additives, it is difficult to achieve a “perfect” looking candle. Just know that you received an all natural candle, and that these imperfections are only aesthetic and will not affect candle performance. The wick used is an all natural hemp twine that is composed of multiple fibers, due to that, the wick tends to mushroom during the burn. This is normal for hemp wick and does cause the wick to be more “smoky” when you put the candle out. To avoid this, use a candle snuffer instead of “blowing out” the candle. That being said, the shop will not refund or exchange your purchase due to any aesthetic imperfections. Please remember to wipe clean your candle container when it is empty, and recycle or reuse.
If your candles are shipped in very cold weather, or very hot weather, be sure to get them indoors as soon as possible, as these conditions could affect the integrity of the candle.
Safety Guidelines for Candle Burning From the National Candle Association, “Never leave a burning candle unattended. Make sure the candle is completely out and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room. Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpet, books, paper, or flammable decorations. Keep your hair and loose clothing away from the flame. Make sure children and pets cannot reach burning candles. Do not place lit candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets, or anyone else. Avoid drafts, vents, or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting, and excessive dripping. Never touch or move a candle when it is burning or while the wax is liquefied. Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another.
