Candle Care

THE PERKS OF SOY: Soy is a natural ingredient so it has its imperfections! You may notice that after you burn your candle the surface may not be completely smooth anymore. This is how you know that your candle is made out of 100% soy wax!

Here at Soap Lab, we only use 100% natural soy wax and therefore you may notice small blemishes on the surface of your candle. This is not a fault and does not impact the quality or burn of the candle in any way. Although every effort is made to ensure consistency, our candles have been individually handcrafted and they may have some variances between them.

BURN IT SAFELY: Always burn your candle on a heat-resistant surface and away from air-draughts. Never leave it unattended while burning and keep it out of reach from children and pets. Burn candle within sight for up to 4 hours each time and extinguish (find our special snuffers here). Never let a candle burn for more than 4 hours. Do not let matches, wick trimmings or debris accumulate in the jar as this could cause a fire hazard. If flame smokes, extinguish and trim wick to ~0.5cm before re-lighting your candle.

TRIM THE WICK to ~0.5cm before each burn. You can find our wick trimmers here.

MAKE IT LAST: If you want your candle to last longer, let the candle burn for 4 hours when you first light it to avoid “tunnelling”.


Burn it safely & enjoy!
