Store candles in a cool, dry place. Candles in containers (jars) are usually softer than the free-standing pillar candles...therefore, when it gets to about 90 degrees (F), they start to sweat. This is totally ok, simply wipe off the melted wax and light as desired.
Tea lights are one of our faves, Green Papaya tealights last for up to 8 hours! Soy wax burns much slower than paraffin, which allows candle afficionados more time to enjoy the warmth and scent it gives off. We recommend mixing and matching, light two tea lights with two different scents and see what you come up with!
Using a wax melter? Did you know that you have to clean your wax melter at least twice a month to get the "gunk" of old waxes off? How? When the wax is in liquid state (melted), take a cotton ball and dip it into the melter. It will absorb the old wax. Repeat until no wax residue is left. When the wax melter has cooled, use alcohol wipe to remove wax residue and scent residue. Now you can reuse!
Got too much wax melt? Got old candles? No problem. Did you know that you can use these as car fresheners? Take wax melts and place them inside a small glass container, place excess wax melts into the container, and leave in the car. When it is hot, the wax will melt inside the glass container and make your car smell really good! Old candles? No problem. Take them and place them in your bathroom, it will definitely improve the smell!
Tip #11: Candles should be placed on a solid surface, preferably metal, glass, or wood. Avoid plastic surfaces or paper-based surfaces as they are flammable. Glass and metals have higher melting point making them safer surfaces for candles. Also avoid placing candles on wire racks since they can fall off balance and create a fire hazard. Use candle holders or coasters whenever possible.
