WHY SOY WAX?
We choose Soy Wax because it comes from soy beans they are not only sustainable, eco-friendly and vegan but also supports Soy beans farmers from around the world.
Soy wax candles burn longer and more evenly than other waxes, and it won't emit the bad toxins and chemicals that other waxes emit into the air. Our lids are made of bamboo, each bamboo lid is torched by hand here in Vancouver.
We use Phthalate Free fragrances and Premium Essential oils. For a nice, durable, evenly burn, please follow the instructions at the bottom of your candle, they are also located on your candle box.
At Lolita's we take pride in offering you an amazing product! If you don't absolutely love it, we will take it back!
CANDLE CARE 101
Lolita’s scented candles are small batch hand poured candles. Although every effort is made to ensure consistency, and each candle has been individually handcrafted and there may be some variances. Our wax is 100% natural soy wax and therefore you may notice small blemishes on the side or surface of your candle. This is not a fault, simply a small blemish and does not impact on the quality or burn of the candle.
BURN BABY BURN
When burning your Lolita’s scented soy wax candle, allow the melt pool to burn completely to the edges each and every burn. This will help create a burn memory, prevent tunnelling, allowing an even burn and maximizing the throw of the fragrance.
Keep out of direct sunlight, this prevents damage and discolouration to wax. When not displayed or in use, store your Lolita’s Soy Candles in a cool and dry space away from direct sunlight.
TRIM TRIM TRIM
Trim your wick to at least 1/4 inch each time you relight your candle to help prevent smoking and to eliminate wick mushrooming it will keep the burn pool clean.
For Wood Wicks, gently wipe the top of the wick with tissue if needed.
Before relighting your candle, ensure it has cooled and hardened completely before you trim your wick.
Burn your candle for no more than 2-3 hours as you can over burn a candle. Make sure your wick is 6mm before re-lighting your candle.
Please discard your candle when there is 10mm of wax or less remaining. We do not advise to continue burning your candle below this.
Please use common sense when burning your candle and keep away from drafty areas and flammable surfaces. Ensure you're burning your candle on a stable and heat resistant surface.
If you are left with a black sooty substance at the rim of your votive, wipe it away with a damp cloth and ensure you keep your wick trimmed.
