Caring for our Candles is important, please read further on how to care for, and reduce soot. We are currently working on a well-balanced mix of fragrance to the wax ratio in order to increase the throw of fragrance and reduce the amount of soot produced due to the choke of oxygen. Candles that are created using blended wax have a chance to produce a minor amount but can be reduced even more with the care of your Candles.

Three very important steps to reduce soot
Keep Candles away from Draft – If you burn your Candles near open windows or fans or air vents, the breeze will cause your flame to flicker. This means that the flame no longer burns consistently, and this causes it to draw more fuel up the wick. You want to ensure that your Candle flame is just right. An ideal Candle flame will not flicker nor dance in the wind.
Trimming your wick – It seems that every time we talk about Candle care, this comes up. We cannot place any more emphasis on how important it is to keep your wicks properly trimmed. The number one reason to produce soot is an exceedingly long wick. Always make sure your wick is trimmed to 1/8 inch before lighting. If you have already lit the Candle, do not be afraid to blow it out, trim the wick and relight it. If you may notice that your flame is still dancing and there is no draft in the room, most likely you may need to trim the wick a bit more. This is one of the reasons why you should never leave your candles unattended. If the flame gets too high your Candle will produce soot but keeping the flame under control will allow a better burn with less soot.
Keep debris out of your Candle – Most times, when we use matches to light our candle, we drop the burnt-out stick into the wax or when we trim our wicks, we drop the burnt-out wick into the wax. This is a common practice but not the best. Match sticks, pieces of wicks, dirt, and other objects do not belong in Candles. It kindles the fire and can clog your wicks which can also cause a buildup of soot.
