is a vegetable wax derived from the soy bean and is therefore 100% natural and vegan.
It is a renewable, and natural alternative to traditional paraffin wax.
At MonkeyStuff we only use the highest quality products in our candles and diffusers, and each item is hand poured within a small batch every time.
The first time you light your candle try to resist the urge to light it just for a few minutes to test the scent as this will then create a 'memory pool' which means that each time you burn it afterwards the wax will only melt within that memory pool and therefore create a 'tunnel' in your candle resulting in less overall burn time and wasting your gorgeous wax.
The first time you properly burn your candle try to burn the entire top layer of the wax, this means seeing the liquid wax reach the sides of the container.
This ensures that each time you burn after that the top layer will continue to go liquid and you'll get the longest lasting candle possible.
This is one of the reasons why we don't tend to promote burn times in our candles.
You may not get as much scent throw in the first hour of burning - this is normal and it will get stronger after that initial hour. Soy wax candles tend to be more of a subtle scent versus the traditional Paraffin wax candles.
All candles can at times create a soot or smoking, if this happens trim your wick down (preferably with a wick trimmer) and place away from any drafty areas.
