Frequently Asked Questions
Are the decorations and food items wax? Do I need to remove them before burning?
Yes, everything all of the food-like items are either handmade out of wax or candle safe ingredients. These things do not need to be removed before burning the candle but the candles may overflow with all the extra topping. Because of this possibility of overflow the candles should always be burned on a heat proof and stable catch tray which should be placed on a stable and level surface out of reach from children or pets, and away from any flammable items or drafts.
The care instructions say I need to trim the wicks before every use, is this really necessary?
Yes! Trimming the wicks is an absolute necessity to ensure the wick and flame perform optimally and helps to reduce the risk of any carbon build up or "sooting". Trimming before the first burn is absolutely essential and the most important trim to ensure the best burning for the whole life of the candle. While wick trimmers make trimming the wick the easiest you can trim wicks with nail clippers or regular scissors as well.
How do I care for my candle before I burn it?
Make sure to keep your candle out of direct sunlight to avoid any discoloration. A UV inhibitor is added to the wax to help reduce any color changes but candle wax does discolor (usually to a yellowed color) when exposed to sunlight. Another good reason to avoid direct sunlight is that it can heat up the wax and actually cause it to melt and change shape.
Also, our candles are so lifelike that they often look like real food items, so please keep them away from children and pets. We know they can be pretty convincing, but they’re definitely not edible! We wouldn't want any little ones or furry friends to get confused and take a chomp.
What type of wax is used in the candle?
We use a coconut wax blend in our candles because it burns cleanly and is an eco-friendly option. Our company is committed to using sustainable materials and being mindful of our impact on the environment, and coconut wax aligns perfectly with our values. Not only does this type of wax produce less soot when burning, but it also has a longer burn time compared to other types of wax. We believe that this is the best choice for our customers who want the finest quality candles that not only smell great, but are also good for the environment.
