Soy Candle Safety - Maddison Avenue Candles

Thank you for choosing Maddison Avenue Candle Company for your soy candle needs.   Handcrafted from 100% soy wax (made from soybean oil), our soy candles are a renewable, biodegradable resource. Please follow these helpful hints to ensure maximum safety and enjoyment of your clean burning soy candle.  Please visitsoy candle burning instructions. 

Our container candles are designed to burn 1 hour per inch in diameter. Approximately 3 hours for each lighting.


At each lighting, burn your soy candle until the melt pool reaches edges of glass. This is usually around 3 hrs. Keeping the wick trimmed 1/4" means you may have to extinguish during the burn (using ourwick dipper).  Before re-lighting, make sure to trim your wick (using ourwick trimmer).  If you do not burn your soy candle until it gets a full melt pool, you will not achieve a good fragrance throw, meaning the candle will not smell as good.  (for more information please seesoy candle burning instructions).

If during the burn the wick gets too big, simply extinguish the candle, trim the wick to 1/8" and relight.  This is usually caused by drafts.   


On the other hand if your melt pool does not get to the edge of the glass in 3 hours, DO NOT trim the wick as much or try burning the candle a little longer.  Avoid tunneling by burning your candle until the melt pool gets to the edge of the glass.  If your candle is burning to one side simply adjust your wick by gently pushing towards opposite side of candle using awick dipper.


Stop burning the candle when 1/2 inch of wax remains in bottom.  Our glass containers clean easily with soap and water and can be re-used.  Simply scrap out cooled wax and dispose of in garbage container (NOT IN SINK - wax will clog your sink).

Before and after burning your candle you may notice an unevenness on the inside of the glass. This is normal and is caused by the wax expanding and contracting with the changing temperatures around them.


Other common occurrences are a white frosting on the top.  Sometimes you may even see bubbles around the edges of your melt pool, none of which will affect the performance or safety of your wonderful soy candle.  This is simply one of the natural occurrences of natural waxes.  Remember that you are helping support America's Farmers and helping keep a cleaner environment by burning soy candles!


Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish candle before going to sleep!
