About The Sacred Soy Candles

Soy wax is non-toxic and burns cleaner than paraffin wax with no petrol-carbon soot which can blacken walls, ceilings, and furniture and contaminate the air in your home as well as adding toxic carcinogens into the air you breathe. Soy candles burn cooler and slower than paraffin wax, creating a longer burning candle. Soybeans come from a renewable source, unlike paraffin which consists of petroleum. Since soybeans are vegetables, soy wax (made from hydrogenated soybean oil) is naturally biodegradable. Soy wax is also easier to remove from materials and other surfaces than paraffin wax.

When you receive your candle you may see white marks on the surface. This is called frosting or bloom and is a normal characteristic of natural waxes. It will not affect the burning process in any way and should be viewed as confirmation that your candle has been made using 100% soy wax.

Instructions for use:
When burning your candle for the first time it is important to give it a 'memory' burn. Your candle should burn for 1 hour (not more and not less) for each inch of its diameter. These sacred soy candles are 3 inches in diameter so should be burned for 3 hours to establish a memory. This allows your candle to establish a full melt pool increasing the scent throw. If your candle is not given a proper memory burn and is burned for a shorter period of time it will 'core burn' down the centre, a good scent throw will not be achieved and you will be left with wax at the bottom and on the sides of the container.

Allow your candle to cool and harden before re-lighting and discontinue burning your candle when there is a quarter of an inch of wax left in the bottom.

Always use a wick dipper or candle snuffer to extinguish your candle to avoid the smoke that occurs when you blow out a candle. Do not place soy candles in the fridge or in direct sunlight as extreme temperatures will cause discolouration. Upon cooling your soy candle may appear 'bumpy' on the top. This is completely normal and a natural characteristic of all soy wax.

The Archangel Studio sacred soy candles are scented with a combination of cosmetic grade fragrance oils and medicinal grade essential oils. Our fragrance oils are sourced within the UK and imported from the USA from a manufacturer that blends a high percentage of essential oils to create the fragrances.

Our sacred soy candles burn for approximately 35 hours each.
