FAQs

 PleaWHAT IS YOUR WAX MADE OF?

Our wax is made of 100% soy wax. Soy candles produce a long, clean burn. The lower melting point of soy wax also prevents tunneling and residue build-up and provides a more fragrant experience than blended waxes.

 

DO YOU USE LEAD WICKS?

No way. The consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) voted unanimously to ban the manufacture and sale of lead-cored wicks and candles with lead-cored wicks in October of 2003. Scent & Fire Candle Company uses pure unbleached cotton wicks.

 

WHAT KIND OF FRAGRANCE OILS DO YOU USE?

Scent & Fire uses a combination of natural, essential and fragrance oils. This allows our fragrances to be very complex and diverse and gives us a wide range of raw materials to choose from when creating new and exciting fragrances. It also allows our fragrances to be more consistent from batch to batch.

 

ARE YOUR CANDLES ORGANIC?

Regardless of what some manufacturers may claim, no candle can actually be certified organic. (The solvents used in the hydrogenation process of any natural wax make that physically impossible). That said, our waxes are made from natural, USA grown soy beans. We are also a Certified California Green Business. 

 

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS GLUTEN-FREE?

Yes, materials used in the manufacturing of our candles are gluten-free. Please don’t eat our candles.

 

DOES SCENT & FIRE TEST ON ANIMALS?

No, all of our products are vegan and cruelty-free. We do not test our products or ingredients on animals.

 

IS THERE A PROPER WAY TO BURN YOUR CANDLES?

Yes! A candle burn is affected by several factors including size and shape of vessel, wick, fragrance oil, temperature/draft in the room, etc. The key to achieving the perfect burn is to always allow your candle to completely liquefy across the top before blowing it out to avoid tunneling. Before each burn, make sure your wick is trimmed to ¼”. Don’t drop debris, like matches or wick trimmings, into the wax. Don’t place your burning candle on sensitive or uneven surfaces. Discontinue burning your candle when about ½” of wax remains.
