Lenx candles are 100% Natural Soy, we use only high quality phthalate-free fragrance oils and pure essential oil blends. All of our creations are hand poured in Perth, Western Australia.
Soy wax burns cleanly and slowly, it does not contain any nasty stuff like herbicides, pesticides or toxins, and it’s made from vegetables so it’s renewable, eco-friendly and carbon neutral.
When lighting a soy candle for the first time, allow the wax to melt all the way to the sides of the container.
The first burn of the candle should last as long as it takes to reach all the way to the edges of the container.
This will give you maximum fragrance and an even burn. If you do not allow the wax to pool on the first burn you may get tunnelling of the wax along the sides of your container.
TRIM THE WICK
Always trim your wick to about 6-8mm before you re-light your candle. This will ensure a long lasting candle, minimise soot and remove any mushrooming of the wick left from the previous burn. But be sure not to over trim your wick as you may not be able to re-light your candle.
If you do not trim the wick regularly, if the candle is in a draft or is left to burn too long you may get a “mushroom” of carbon on the end of the wick. This may cause some soot to collect on the inside of the container. If this happens, extinguish your candle, wait for it to cool, wipe off the carbon marks with a clean damp cloth and re-light.
Always keep candle free of any foreign materials including reach of children and pets. Always burn within sight on a level, fire resistant surface.
