Candle Care

Shea Innocence candles only use natural biodegradable, renewable vegetable based soy wax cotton wicks and a mixture of high quality essential and fragrance oils sourced from the UK.

Soy wax candles can add beauty and atmosphere to your home. We want to make sure that you get the most out of your candles, so here are a few tips to help them burn and last longer:

  • When lighting the candle for the first time, allow the surface wax to melt all the way across to the edges. Wax has a memory and this will prevent tunneling and ensure the candle does not burn down the middle,
  • Burn the candle for a maximum of four hours at a time.
  • Always keep the wick trimmed to approximately 4-6mm. This reduces smoking and helps the candle burn slower and longer,
  • If the candle is smoking and there is a large flame, the wick may be too long and needs to be trimmed. Extinguish the candle, let it cool and trim the wick to the recommend length mentioned above.
