We all love burning our favorite candles at home – whether it’s winter and you want to get cozy or it’s summertime and you’re enjoying your favorite scent. But did you know that the majority of your scented candles are made from synthetic fragrances which can put your health at risk?
While scented candles are great for creating a relaxing ambiance, some candles can emit hazardous chemicals when you burn them such as benzene and toluene, which can cause damage to the brain, lungs, and central nervous system as well as cause developmental difficulties in children. Frequent use of candles with synthetic fragrances can lead to allergies, asthma, and even cancer.
Introducing: Pure Soy Wax Candles
We’ve created a 100% pure soy wax candle with a wooden wick that is organic, non-toxic, eco-friendly, and sourced from FSC-certified mills. Our candles come in Solace or Unmasque Essence housed in a recyclable clear glass jar. The 11oz candles burn for 100+ hours and the 3oz candles burn for 30+ hours, all while emanating the aroma of the natural essence – we don’t ever use any synthetic fragrance in our products!
The 3oz pure soy wax candles are great for smaller rooms such as a bath or laundry area, while the 11oz pure soy wax candles work well in bedrooms or living rooms.
Burning Your Candle
For best results, trim the wooden wick to between 1/4 to 1/2 inch before lighting. On your first use, tiny sparks and crackling may occur. Our wooden wicks burn slowly with a small flame to extend the candle’s life and help keep your air clean.
To maximize your candle’s burn time, do not extinguish the flame until the entire top layer of wax is melted to the edges. Blowing out your candle too soon could cause the candle to “tunnel” or only burn down the middle. When your candle tunnels, the wick cannot get enough oxygen to burn and will make it hard to light in the future.
After your first burn, it’s best to keep the wood wick trimmed – pinch off the split part of the wooden wick before you light it again to help maintain the wick and keep your candle lit.
What People Are Saying
“I’m super sensitive to synthetic scents, especially candles, so I was so excited to see that Ambre Blends made these pure candles. They are the only ones that I like to burn and use because I’m not coughing or reacting to them like I would a typical store-bought candle. Plus the Solace scent is so unique that you can’t help but want to use it all the time.”
“This was given to me as a gift and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on another one! Perfect for mommy’s quiet time (which doesn’t happen very often) when I take a bath. Love the smell and amazed at how long the scent lingers. Love it!”
