FAQ

What makes Blue Sunflower Aromas candles different?

Blue Sunflower Aromas candles are hand poured from small batches. We have thoughtfully chosen the ingredients and materials that go into making and shipping our luxury candles:

• Coconut soy wax (a renewable resource)
• Cotton wicks
• Phthalate-free fragrance oils
• Recycled glass jars
• Biodegradable packing peanuts

What is coconut soy wax?

Coconut soy wax is formed from cold-pressed coconut meat and mixed with soy wax. This beautiful blend is toxin free, paraben free, phthalate free and comes from renewable sources. Coconut soy wax has an excellent fragrance throw and burns slower and cleaner than other waxes.

Why is trimming the wick so important?

Trimming your wick each time will help your candle burn cleaner and longer. When the wick is not trimmed, it accumulates carbon, making your candle smoke and burn unevenly. When this occurs, you will begin to see black soot accumulate on your jar. Your wick should be trimmed to ¼ inch before each burn to prevent this from happening.

Why is my candle releasing soot?

Soot naturally occurs with any candle. If your candle is releasing excessive soot, it can be the result of carbon build-up on the wicks. This occurs when the wick is not trimmed, the candle is burned for longer than the recommended time (approximately 3-4 hours), or burning the candle in an area that is receiving a draft. If you are experiencing excessive sooting, try trimming your wicks to ¼ inch, moving your candle to a different location, or extinguishing your candle if it has been burning for more than 3-4 hours.

Why is there a hole down the center of my candle?

This is called tunnelling. Tunnelling happens when the candle is extinguished before it has fully melted to the edges. It is important to burn your candle until the wax has melted all the way to the edges. It is especially important to do the first time you burn your candle, this is the memory burn. This usually takes about 1 hour per diameter, so approximately 3 hours for our candles.

How long will my candle last?

If the wick is trimmed to ¼ before each burn and you burn your candle no longer than 3-4 hours at a time, your candle should burn for approximately 55-60 hours.
