Wallowa Lake- A brand new Woodsy Wicks house blend that is a fresh scent with notes of lavender, juniper, eucalyptus, pine & Douglas fir to encourage relaxation just like you would feel if you were hanging at the lake! Minty notes bring a sense of cool fresh air and of course you get a woodsy base that smells like the surrounding mountain air.
All of our oils are a blend of essential and fragrance oils that are completely clean and non-toxic and meet the highest standards.
We use 100% soy wax with NO additives! Some of the many reasons we love soy wax are:
The first burn-
The first time you light your candle please allow the melt pool reach the edge of the jar. This sets the stage for a proper burn throughout the life of the candle and prevents tunneling; which causes wicks to have a hard time staying lit.
If you are having trouble lighting your wood wick try to make sure you are holding the flame at the base of the exposed wick; where it meets the wax. The wax is the fuel that keeps the wick burning so if you are only holding the flame at the top of the wick, and the wood near the wax isn't catching fire, the candle will not stay lit.
Trim your wick-
Trimming your wick is important when it comes to getting the proper burn from your candle. This is true for pretty much any wick, not just wood wicks. I trim all candles to the proper length before sending them off to their new homes but after you burn your candle it is important to trim off the black burnt wood and keep the wick length between 1/8 and 1/4 inch. If you do not trim off the burnt portion, especially after a long burn, your candle might not even relight because the burnt portion of the wood will have a hard time staying lit. If the untrimmed wick does happen to stay lit it will have a much higher flame than it should due to the wick being too long. In order to trim, use a wick trimmer (available on our website) or take your fingers and snap off the burnt wood after the candle has completely cooled. It comes off very easily!
Practice safe burning-
