Way Too Short?

trimming a candle wickA few posts back I gave a tip on burning candles involving wick trimming. Today I was getting ready to light a candle in my home and I trimmed my wicks prior to lighting it. Lately I have been burning our new 2 wick 12oz soy candles. I trimmed both wicks but on the second one I snipped it a little too short. I went ahead and lit them both to see if it might turn out all right. In about 5 minutes the short wick was out. I realized I should have included a tip in my prior post on how to fix a candle with a wick that is too short. There are two simple methods to use in this situation. If your candle is a multi-wick candle you can try lighting both wicks and see what happens. If after a few minutes the short wick goes out, simply pour out the liquid wax into the trash, trim the longer wick and re-light them. The second method can be used if not enough wax has been liquified or if your candle only has one wick. Using a butter knife, spoon, or other similar object, carve a layer of wax off the top of your candle and throw it out (or put it into a candle warmer). The re-light your candle, grab a book, and relax.

Soy Candles

There is a lot of talk about “going green” and being more environmentally friendly. Many Americans are taking small steps to be more environmentally friendly and take care of our earths resources. One of the things we have had requests for is a line of soy candles. Soy wax is a renewable source grown right here in the US, and therefore helps support our American farmers and our economy.

So we are happy to announce our brand new scented soy candles. We have 5oz and 12oz tapered square glass container available in 5 really strong fragrances including; Pumpkin Souffle, Clean Cotton, Lilac, Lavender, and Very Vanilla. These candles are made with 100% soy wax. These soy candles are being introduced at very affordable prices.
