FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CANDLES

WHY SOY WAX?

Soy is a completely natural product and burns slower than parrafin wax which in turn increases the life of your candle.  Soy is non-toxic and non-carcinogenic and is a great choice for those wishing to burn environmentally friendly candles.  Soy is a renewable resource and is water soluble.  You can rinse your jar out with hot, soapy water and resuse it for any purpose you like.

IS THERE SUCH A THING AS TRIPLE SCENTED CANDLES?

Soy wax can only hold a certain amount of frangrance oil per kilo.  If you exceed the maximum amount the fragrance oil will seep out and sit on top of the candle.  Triple scented actually refers to the top, middle and base notes of a fragrance, not the amount of fragrance used.

DO CANDLES HAVE A MEMORY?

Yes they do . When burning your candles for the first time make sure the wick is trimmed to around 1/4 of an inch and that you allow the candles to burn all the way to the edge before extinguising it.  This should take around 3-4 hours.  If you do not do this the candle will remember where it has burned to and “tunnel”.  If you follow the directions on the candle care card included with your purchase you will be guaranteed a clean burning, long lasting candle.

BURNING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Burn candle in sight and away from drafts. Never leave your candle burning unattended.
  • Keep burning candle away from anything that can catch fire and out of reach of children and pets.
  • Burn candle on a heat resistant surface.
  • Keep wicks trimmed to 1/4″ and keep candle free from trimmings.
  • Discontinue use of candle when 1/2″ of wax remains.
 

 

SOAPS

WHY CHOOSE HANDMADE?

Because of the ingredients.  My soaps are made with oils that have skin  benefits, unlike commercial soaps that often contain detergents and synthetic ingredients.  I generally use olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and sunflower oil in my recipes, but you can see a full list of ingredients for each soap on the product page.  I choose these ingredients for their skin nourishing properties and while i cannot make claims about therapeutic benefits you can google each of the ingredients to see for yourself.

IS THERE LYE IN YOUR SOAP?

Soap is the end result of a chemical reacting that results from mixing oils, lye and water.  The heat generated during this process leads to ‘saponification’ which is required for soap to form into a bar.  During this reaction all lye is disolved and none remains in the final bar of soap.

HOW LONG WILL MY SOAP LAST?

Depending on your environment and how you care for your soap this will vary.  Handmade soap can last anwhere form several weeks to several months.  The bar will last longer if you keep it out of the direct shower stream and on a soap dish to allow it to dry out between uses.  

HOW LONG DO YOU CURE YOUR SOAP FOR?

All my soaps are cured for a minimum of four weeks before being offered for sale.  This ensures a hard, mild and long lasting bar of soap.

 

HOMEWARES

WHAT IS DYE SUBLIMATION?

Sublimation is a process of applying a heat sensitive ink to a substrate such as a tumbler, mug or fabric.  The ink is printed onto a special paper which is then laid on the substrate and run through a heat press.  The ink is then permanently transferred to the substrate.

 

DO YOU DO CUSTOM DESIGNS?

Yes, I am more than happy to discuss any custom designs with you.  Please email me at [email protected] and i will get back to you as soon as possible.

DO YOU HAVE A MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITY?

No, you are able to order as much or as little as you like.  Discounts do apply for greated quantities of stubby holders and mugs.  Please see the pricing table on the product page.
