How to get the most from your Aura Rapeseed and Coconut Wax Candle

Did you know that wax has a memory? It’s smart! Here’s why: When lighting your candle for the first time, and each time, thereafter, allow the wax to melt all the way out to the full diameter of its container. Once the melted wax reaches the glass, allow it to melt until 1/4” deep. This is called a melt pool. This is also where all that fragrant aroma is released

Rapeseen and Coconut wax continues to expand, contract and change from its current form. It may also look frosted or have wet spots (where the wax pulls away from the glass). These ‘flaws’ are normal, and it is a clear indication that you have purchased a 100% all-natural soy candle. Hey, we can’t all be perfect!  Spotted a few air bubbles? Don’t worry, this is simply caused by surrounding temperature changes. And, as for a little discoloration? It’s due to our generous amount of fragrance oil and those ingredients in the formula which are naturally derived. Neither bubbles nor colour will affect your candle’s diffusion and lifespan.

Light at the end of the tunnelling!

To prevent uneven wax (or tunnelling), always burn candles long enough for the wax to melt and pool to the edges of the glass, don’t extinguish the flame until it has a full melt pool.


Never leave a candle unattended, Never place it in a draughty area, or Never burn the wax down to the base.  Oh, and make sure you protect the surface on which a candle sits. All very important.
