WHAT KIND OF WAX DO YOU USE FOR YOUR CANDLES?
All of our candles are made using non-toxic, biodegradable, all natural soy wax made from sustainably sourced US grown soybeans.
WHAT is the white coating on my candle?
Frosting is a natural effect in candles unique to vegetable waxes, especially soy. It is the natural wax re-crystallizing and trying to return to its natural state. It looks like small, white crystals on the top of the candle or the side of the jar.
Starfield Candle Company uses 100% natural soy wax without additional additives to prevent frosting, therefore frosting may develop over time. Frosting is especially common in 100% natural wax and we do our best to minimize this effect, however, please note this is a normal effect on natural soy candles. This in no way will affect how the candle burns.
WHAT are some best practices for candle burning?
Burn your candle for a couple of hours when first lighting it. Allowing the top layer of wax to fully melt will ensure that your candle will burn evenly for the next lighting. Wax has a memory so it is important not to skip this step to make sure you get the most even burning out of your candle. If your candle doesn't burn all the way to the edge for the first burn, it will begin to tunnel and won't burn evenly next time (and future lightings).
Trim your wick to 1/4" before each lighting. The longer the wick, the quicker your candle will burn, so trimming it will make it last longer. It also prevents black smoke from occurring and ensures the glass isn't over-heating.
Keep the lid on the jars when not in use to prevent dust from settling on the candle. If your candle does collect some dust, you can use a wet cotton pad to remove the dust.
We recommend burning the candle for no more than 4 hours. Should your glass turn black due to the candle having been left to burn for too long, simply wipe off the glass with a wet cotton pad or paper towel and dry before use. If mushrooming occurs, (the black mushroom shape at the tip of the wick resulting from carbon buildup), trim the buildup off and trim the wick to 1/4" before burning.
