Here are some FAQs about our hand carved wood bowl candles, we hope these clear confusion or concern around them.
How safe are these?
We believe they are safe to burn as long as the person burning it is aware of and follows the federal warnings and burning instructions. One thing to note about all candles is that the wax in a candle melts from the heat of the wick burning. The wick is only in contact with the wax and the holder that secures the wick in place, so the actual flame does not come in contact with the wood bowl.
Do you spray the wood bowls with fire retardant?
No, we do not. We keep our candles as clean and as natural as possible and believe our soy wax mixing with fire retardant chemicals is not a very healthy way to go.
Do I need to do anything different to burn this candle?
No, you do not. We will always recommend that you abide by the federal warnings/burning instructions that are listed on a sticker that is attached to each and every one of our candles. Here’s a recap of our guidelines:
Burn within sight
– Keep away from flammable objects
– Keep away from children and pets
– Trim wicks to 1/4″ before lighting
– Do not burn candle for more than four hours at a time.
– Stop use when only 1/4″ of wax remains.
What can I do with the dough bowl once the candle burns out?
Ask us to refill it for you or clean the bowl out and reuse it for decor or other fun functions!
How many hours exactly will these last?
The wood bowls are hand carved so the exact dimensions, and amount of wax each holds will be slightly different. Currently, our average size wood bowl has a diameter of 20-25cm which holds roughly 8-10 ounces of wax and have a burn time of about 25-30 hours. The candle reaches an entire melt pool around hour 4, which is exactly when you’d extinguish the flame.
