Candles are magical items that can enchant not only our space, but most importantly, they can also improve our mood.

Do you know how to properly burn soy candles?

This question may seem unimportant, but it can actually be crucial. You may be wondering if it matters what type of candle you choose.

Soy candles, being natural products, behave differently than conventional paraffin candles. Therefore, it is worth knowing a few simple rules to enjoy their magical glow and maintain their aroma for a long time.

First smoking.

When first burning a soy candle, allow the wax to melt until it covers the outer edges of the container. Full dissolution of the upper wax layer prevents the so-called "memory ring" and makes the scent as intense as possible. For soy candles, this process usually takes 1 to 2 hours.

It should be emphasized that proper first burning can significantly extend the life of the candle, so we encourage you to pay attention to this step.

Maximum burning time in a session.

If you want to maintain the intensity of the aroma and beauty of your candle, try not to burn it for longer than 3 to 4 hours at a time. If you want to enjoy its glow for a longer period of time, turn it off for a while, allowing the wax to harden before lighting it again. This will help prevent the wick from tilting and causing the jar to become too hot.

Maximize scent.

It is worth remembering that open windows and doors can dissipate the smell and weaken its intensity. Therefore, we recommend placing the candle in a limited space, which will not only enhance its aroma, but also ensure optimal burning.

Extinguishing the candle.

Avoid blowing out the flame when extinguishing the candle. Blowing out may cause wax to splatter, which in extreme cases may stain furniture or cause burns.

It is best to extinguish the candle using a snuffer. If you don't have such a tool, you can do it safely by covering the flame, e.g. with a plate (but not with a cap). After extinguishing, release the smoke from the container - its presence may affect the aroma of the wax.

Last smoke.

Stop burning the candle when about 1 cm of wax remains at the bottom of the jar. This will help prevent the jar from overheating, which could damage the surface underneath the candle.

Once the last inch of wax has hardened, it can be removed by gently breaking it up and removing it. Soy wax is biodegradable, so it can be safely disposed of and the container can be reused.


  • Do not leave lit candles unattended and keep and burn them out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Always place candles on a heat-resistant base and place it on a level and stable surface.
  • Do not burn completely to avoid damaging the jar - stop burning the candle when 1.5 - 1 cm of wax remains at the bottom. If you burn a candle below this limit, you risk overheating the jar, causing the wick to detach and move, and consequently crack the jar and possibly damage the surface on which you place the candle.
  • Burn the candle away from drafts. Drafts have a negative impact on both the burning of the candle and the safety of burning it. Flame flickering causes soot deposits and shortens the burning time of the candle, and can also be dangerous.

Improve your mood safely!

All the best!
