1). What are the benefits of essential oils?
Studies have shown that when you inhale certain essential oils (such as lavender, orange, peppermint, neroli) they have an effect on our limbic system, which is the part of the brain that plays a role in our emotions. Essential oils can cause temporary relaxation, invigoration and focus so assist in moments of stress and anxiety. They also don't produce strong, overpowering fragrance.
2). Are there any negative effects of coconut wax?
Coconut wax is one of the best in the candle making industry which is why it is more expensive. It is 90% cleaner than paraffin wax and is natural, non-toxic, sustainable and biodegradable.
3). Why is there black soot coming from the candle wick?
To ensure that your candle burns clean, it is advised you trim the wick 1/4'' every time before relighting and keep out of drafts to allow full combustion.
4). How long can I burn my candle for?
Your candle should be lit for no longer than 4 hours.
5). Do you ship internationally?
We ship to the UK only at present, but hope to ship to friends in the US soon!
6). Why is it so expensive to ship?
As we are a small company currently we don't benefit from the big shipping discounts offered to larger organisations. The more we grow the more we can decrease shipping rates across the board.
7). Where is best to burn my candle?
We advise you burn your candle on a heat resistant surface and out of any drafts. The first time you light your candle you should allow the wax to melt all the way to the edges. Candles should be kept 2ft away from any flammable materials and should always be supervised when in use, especially around children and pets. Never leave a candle unattended. Once you get to 1/4 of candle wax you should discontinue the use of the candle and repurpose the container.
