Why purchase a SAFFRON ALCHEMY candle?
·ESSENTIAL OILS: No more nasty headache inducing fragrance oils. Natural essential oils have aromatherapy benefits that Improve mood and set a positive atmosphere.
·BEESWAX: Beeswax has many benefits but in my opinion the most important being environmental footprint, beeswax is the most eco friendly candle wax as even the production of soy wax leaves quite a dent in the ozone. Other benefits include the natural release of negative ions, longer lasting and lower toxicity than soy and paraffin.
·HANDMADE: Work done by hand takes less energy than a mass production assembly line, which makes it more environmentally sustainable… plus you make a real life person fist pump with every sale notification.
·NO LEAD: simple. No lead filled wicks
·NO HARMEFUL CHEMICALS: Regular scented candles are a huge source of indoor air pollution and they put off chemicals that are considered just as dangerous as second-hand smoke.

1. Allow Wax to Pool
Light the wick on one end and allow the flame to flow naturally across the wick, Make sure that the wax melts to the edge of the candle before extinguishing it—this may take between 30 to 60 minutes. Allowing the wax to pool will discourage “tunneling” or leaving wax on the sides of the vessel. The flame height may vary at times and occasionally even appear to self-extinguish, but this is normal. Even if you are experiencing a “low” flame, it will continue to heat and the flame height should return.
You’ll experience the best burn results when the candle remains lit for 3-4 hours.
2. Keep the Candle Within Sight & Away from Drafts
Always place the candle on a flat, heat-resistant surface, and make sure to keep the candle away from children, pets, materials that can catch fire, and other heat sources.
3. Never Move or Handle the Candle While It’s Burning or While the Wax is Hot
To be safe, only move your candle once the flame is extinguished and the wax has cooled. Pouring or removing liquid wax from the vessel could cause the wick to extinguish or “drown” in the wax and affect the future burn quality of the candle.
4. When to Trim the Wick
Due to the nature of the wooden wicks, you shouldn’t need to trim your candle wick. The only exception is when the flame exceeds 25mm or the candle begins to smoke.
If you need to trim the wick, carefully extinguish the candle, allow the wick and wax to cool, and trim it to 6mm by gently breaking off the burned edges of the wick with a cloth or paper napkin. Remove and discard all wick trimmings safely before relighting the candle.
