hand poured in small batches, with 100% soy derived from American-grown soy beans for an eco-friendly, clean burn. we use lead-free cotton wicks, and pure essential oils. no added dyes or chemicals. each candle is poured in an 8 oz reusable glass jar. soy is 100% renewable, sustainable, vegan, and eco-friendly. Instructions: When first lighting our candles, please be sure to hold the lighter to the base of the wick. We STRONGLY suggest holding the lighter to the wick for 20-30 seconds to get a good first light. NEVER burn our candles for more than 4 hours at a time. This will cause the soy to burn extremely fast. 2-4 hour increments will have your candle lasting from 55-60 hours!
