Pillar Candle 3"x 9"
Handmade by Granny Kate. 3" in diameter x 9" tall. Approx. 31.5 ounces.
Soy/beeswax blend 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.
Why Do We Love 100% Soy/beeswax Candles
- Burns clean and soot free when all the candle burning rules are followed.
- Toxin-free, healthier for the environment and you.
- Eco-friendly. Soy wax and beeswax are a natural and renewable resource.
- Personal experience: Once I started to use these candles, I'm never going back to paraffin candles.
Tips for Burning our Soy/beeswax Pillar Candles
- 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.
