About our candles

Granny Kate's candles are made by hand using only natural ingredients from renewable sources. You will never see us use any paraffin or petroleum in our products. Our regular Tapers, 4" chime and pillar candles are made from Soy wax, Beeswax. We do have Pillars made of just Beeswax. Since our candles are made by hand there might be slight variations in color from batch to batch. We hope you enjoy your candles as much as we do.

 Handmade by Granny Kate. Soy wax and cotton wicks allow pillar candles to burn perfectly without soot and leaves a safe, smooth 1/4 inch hurricane shell, allowing candle light to glow from the inside.

DO NOT BURN SOY PILLARS ALL THE WAY OUT TO THE EDGE OR FOR TOO LONG. DO NOT HUG YOUR SOY PILLAR CANDLES.

Tips for Burning a Soy and Palm Pillar Candle

- Wax has memory, so it is crucial that for the first burn you allow the wax to create a full melt pool by burning for one hour for every inch in diameter of the candle. A 3-inch diameter candle will need to burn for about 3 hours to create a full pool. A full pool of a pillar candle will leave about 1/4 inch to the edge for protection. If you see that the melt pool is spreading out and leaving less than 1/4 inch dowse immediately to avoid a spill over.

- Never "HUG" a soy wax candle. Soy wax candles are supposed to burn down through the middle and create a soft glow. Make sure you burn your candles in a good candle holder.

- Trim the wick before lighting your candle if necessary. Keep wick trimmed to 1/4 inch at all times to ensure the best performance of the candle.

- For safety reasons, discontinue use of the pillar candle when 1/2'' wax remains inside the shell.
