1) What’s the best way to burn a Vancouver Candle Co. candle?
Each candle comes with a dust cover or sticker at the bottom describing the burning instructions.
Trim your wick to ¼” before each burn. Allow the melt pool to reach the edges of the container before extinguishing. This is roughly 3 to 4 hours for our signature boxed candles and 2 to 3 hours for our gold travel tins. The rule of thumb is 1 hour for each inch of the container’s diameter. This will allow the candle to burn cleanly and evenly. Candles have memory so if you extinguish it too quickly, you may experience tunneling.
To prevent fire and serious injury, burn your candle within sight. Keep away from drafts. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Never burn your candle on or near anything that can catch fire.
2) What are Vancouver Candle Co. candles made of?
Each candle is made from the finest, local and ethically sourced materials. We choose to work with premium soy wax blends as it burns cleanly and longer than traditionally paraffin candles. Soy is natural and washes away easily with a soap and water. It’s also a renewable resource and carbon neutral, as opposed to coconut wax which is a leading cause of deforestation.
Our fragrance is the highest quality, cosmetic-grade. We use a combination of natural, essential oils and synthetic oils. Straight essential oils tend to have a lower flash point, often resulting a poorer scent throw.
We use 100% cotton wicks free from any metal cores. Burning candles with lead-cored wicks is now known to cause lead poisoning, and there are similar concerns about zinc-cored wicks.
3) How long do Vancouver Candle Co. candles burn?
When burning according to our recommended instructions, our signature box candles will burn for approximately 60 hours and travel tins for approximately 30 hours.
4) How fragrant are Vancouver Candle Co. candles?
Each candle produces a rich, long-lasting fragrance that gently fills the room. While it does help to eliminate odors, it’s not specially designed to be a room deodorizer.
