  • Can I reuse the candle jar after it's finished?
    Absolutely! We encourage our customers to repurpose our candle jars once the wax has burned down. Our jars are made in Italy from high-quality materials that are durable and long-lasting, making them perfect for storage or decoration. To remove any remaining wax, simply place the jar in the freezer for a few hours, and then use a butter knife to gently pry out the wax. Once the jar is empty, it can be washed with soap and water and used for anything from holding office supplies to displaying flowers. We love seeing how our customers get creative with their Ember & Scent candle jars so remember to tag us on social media with your repurposed candle jar creations!

  • Are your fragrances long-lasting?
    Yes, our candles are made with high-quality fragrances and essential oils that are designed to provide a long-lasting scent experience. Our candles are hand-poured in small batches to ensure that each candle is carefully crafted with the perfect amount of fragrance. We also use a blend of natural soy wax, which burns cleaner and slower than traditional paraffin wax, allowing the fragrance to release slowly and evenly. With proper care and maintenance, our candles can provide hours of delightful scent.
  • How do I care for my Ember & Scent candle?
    At Ember & Scent, we want you to enjoy our candles to the fullest. Here are some tips on how to care for your candles: Trim the wick: Before lighting your candle, make sure to trim the wick to around 5mm. This will prevent the flame from getting too large and will help your candle burn evenly. Burn for at least 2 hours: To get the most out of your candle, burn it for at least 2 hours or until the wax has melted to the edge of the jar. This will prevent tunnelling and ensure that your candle burns evenly. Keep away from drafts: Avoid placing your candle in drafty areas as this can cause uneven burning and may even extinguish the flame. Keep away from flammables: Ensure candles are placed on a heat-resistant surface away from curtains, papers, and other flammable materials. Keep out of reach: Place candles out of reach of children and pets to prevent accidental burns or spills. Check surroundings: Ensure there are no loose or hanging fabrics near the candle that could catch fire. Store properly: When not in use, store your candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This will help preserve the scent and quality of your candles. By following these simple tips, you can extend the life & safety of your Ember & Scent candles and enjoy their beautiful fragrances for longer.
  • Are your candles made from natural and eco-friendly materials?
    Yes, at Ember & Scent, we are committed to using only natural and eco-friendly materials in all our candles. We use 100% soy wax, which is a natural and renewable resource. Our candles are also free from parabens, phthalates, and other harmful chemicals, making them safe for you and the environment. We also use cotton wicks, which are biodegradable and environmentally friendly. Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond our materials, as we use recyclable and reusable packaging whenever possible.

  • What kind of wax do you use?
    At Ember & Scent, we use Golden Wax 464 Soy Wax for all of our candles which is well known for its high qualities. This wax is natural, renewable, and biodegradable, making it an environmentally-friendly option. It also burns cleanly and evenly, providing a long-lasting and fragrant candle experience. We take pride in using high-quality ingredients in all of our products, and our choice of wax is no exception.
  • Why do you not use dye in your candles?
    At Ember & Scent, we prioritize creating high-quality, natural candles that do not contain any harmful chemicals or synthetic additives. We believe that dye can be unnecessary and potentially harmful to our customers' health and the environment. Instead, we use natural ingredients such as essential oils and plant-based wax to create beautiful, aromatic candles that are safe for you and your home. Our commitment to sustainability and ethical practices is reflected in every product we offer.
  • Are your candles safe to burn at home?
    Yes, our candles are designed with safety in mind. We use high-quality wicks and wax that provide a clean and even burn. However, it's essential to follow safe candle-burning practices, such as trimming the wick to around 5mm before lighting, keeping the candle away from drafts and flammable materials, and never leaving a burning candle unattended. You can find more detailed safety instructions on our product labels and website to enjoy your candles safely.
  • Are Ember & Scent candles safe for pets and children?
    Yes, Ember & Scent candles are safe for pets and children when used properly. Our candles are made with high-quality, non-toxic ingredients, including soy wax and essential oils, which make them safe to burn in your home. However, it's important to always supervise children and pets around candles and keep them out of reach to prevent accidents. We recommend placing your candle on a stable surface away from flammable materials and ensuring that the wick is trimmed to around 5mm before lighting. With these precautions in mind, you can enjoy the warm glow and delicious scent of Ember & Scent candles with peace of mind.
  • Why is my candle not perfectly smooth?
    At Ember & Scent, we take pride in crafting high-quality, hand-poured candles. However, due to the nature of soy wax and the handmade process, some imperfections may occur. These imperfections can include air bubbles, frosting, or uneven texture on the surface of the candle. While these imperfections may affect the appearance of your candle, they do not impact the quality or performance of the product. In fact, they can add character and charm to your candle, making it a unique and one-of-a-kind piece. If you have any concerns about the quality of your candle, please do not hesitate to contact us.
