  • Why is soy wax better than other types of candle wax
    Soy wax is considered better than other types of candle wax for several reasons. Firstly, it is a renewable and sustainable resource, being derived from soybeans, making it more environmentally friendly. In addition, soy wax burns cleaner and longer than paraffin wax, producing significantly less soot and toxins. This makes it a healthier option for both the environment and for individuals. Furthermore, soy wax has a lower melting point, which means it burns at a cooler temperature, reducing the risk of burns and making it safer for households with children and pets. At Bottlenose Candles, we use only natural, eco-friendly soy wax in all of our products, ensuring that our customers can enjoy high-quality candles that are both safe and sustainable.
  • Why do I need to trim my candle wick
    Trimming your candle wick is essential for maintaining a safe and clean burn. When a wick is too long, it can create a large flame that may lead to excessive soot production, uneven burning, and potential hazards. By trimming the wick to about 1/4 inch before each use, you can promote a more controlled and even burn, prolong the lifespan of your candle, and reduce the risk of soot and smoke. At Bottlenose Candles, we encourage our customers to practice proper candle care to ensure a delightful and safe candle-burning experience.
  • How should I store my soy candles from Bottlenose Candles?
    It's important to store your soy candles in a cool, dry place as soy wax can soften in temperatures over 25 degrees. Avoid direct sunlight and keep your candles covered when not in use to prevent dust buildup. Additionally, when burning soy candles, remember that they are a lifestyle choice and care should be taken to not leave them unattended. This will ensure that you get the most out of your candles and enjoy them safely.
  • What safety precautions should I take when using Bottlenose Candles?
    When using Bottlenose Candles, it is important to always prioritise safety. Make sure to never leave a burning candle unattended and always extinguish candles before going to sleep. Not only could a candle cause a fire on its own, but children and pets could knock it over, burn themselves or cause a house fire. Additionally, keep candles out of reach of children and pets, and place them on a stable, heat-resistant surface away from flammable materials. Following these safety precautions will ensure you can enjoy the beauty and ambiance of Bottlenose Candles in a safe and responsible manner.
