Fill the top basin of the oil burner half full of water.
Place 5 drops of your favorite fragrance oil into the water.
Place a tealight at the base of the burner and light. *************************************************************The fragrance oil and water will heat up allowing the scent to release into the room. The tealight burns for at least 4 hours and will extinguish on its own. However, keep burner insight at all times to monitor the amount of oil and water mixture left in the basin. If water and oil mixture evaporate before tealight extinguishes, please add more oil/water.
What kind of wax do you use for candles and wax melts?
We offer all-natural hand poured soy candles as well as a para-soy candles. Our para-soy candles are majority soy wax with a percentage of paraffin wax blended to improve the HOT THROW of the candle when burning. The para-soy wax blend burns a little faster but has a stronger scent throw (hot throw), whereas soy wax burns slower but has a milder scent throw (hot throw). As far as our wax melts, they are made with all-natural soy wax.
Are your oils harmful?
Majority of our uniquely blended handmade products which are made using fragrance and essential oil blends are manufactured from a distributor that provides Clean Scents that are safer for the home. The clean scent oils exclude materials with health concerns that are on California's Proposition 65 list. The oils are 100% phthalate, carcinogen, and mutagen free. Our clean scent oils are also free from a reproductive, organ, or acute toxins. We do follow IFRA, or International Fragrance Association recommended dosages to provide safe products.
We do not recommend using oils out of our glass doppler bottles on your skin. Our uniquely blended oils are not diluted with a carrier oil. (Some oils are not skin safe or ONLY skin safe when diluted to a certain percentage.)
Can oils be used in a diffuser?
Yes, oils can be used in a diffuser.
Warning!!!!! Please be careful with oils! If there is any spillage on a surface, wipe off oil immediately. Oils may damage some surfaces, particularly wood surfaces.
How to burn my candle?
Trim the wick 1/4 inch before each burning. You can use a wick trimmer, nail clipper, or small sharp scissors to trim the wick. Trimming the wick helps prevent sooting which can cause a change in wax color, change in scent (scorching wax), and prevents the wick from disintegrating.
Be careful NOT to trim the wick too short (can cause a small flame)! Trimming the wick too short can cause drowning of the wick.
(Check out troubleshooting tips down below if you are experiencing this problem.)
Allow the melted candle wax to reach FULL diameter (edge of the container) which should be within the first two hours. If you do not allow the candle to reach full diameter, you will experience tunneling which can ruin the candle.
(Check out troubleshooting tips down below if you experience this problem.)
Never burn candles for more than 4 hours at a time. Burning a candle too long causes a collection of carbon onto the wick, then mushrooming of the wick. This will cause an even larger flame, and the candle will start to smoke and release soot.
It is BEST to extinguish the candle by using the surrounding melted wax. Move the candle in a circular motion or side to side to allow the wax to cover the wick. Be careful not to spill the hot wax!
Be sure to follow the warning label burning instructions placed under each candle lid. Safety first!
Drowning wicks (flame too small):
Use a Q-tip or cotton ball and soak up some of the wax while it is melted. You will notice the flame will get bigger. Be very careful not to touch the flame.
Take aluminum foil and wrap it around the edges making a chimney surrounding the burning candle. Let the foil stay for about 30 minutes. This will help the wax at the edge of the candle to melt. Now you have saved your candle!!
Why do I have frosting or white specs in my candle?
Frosting or formulation of tiny crystals occurs over time and is a byproduct of natural soy wax. Don't worry this is one feature of natural soy wax and does not affect the performance of the candle.
Why does my candle top look rough afterburning?
Rough pitted tops after burning happens sometimes with inconsistencies of the hot candle wax cooling and solidifying. Don't worry this is a feature of natural soy wax and does not affect the performance of the candle.
