Candles

Candles are easy to use but there are some things you can do to make them last longer. Here are some of our best use tips:

1. ALWAYS trim the wick before lighting or re-lighting. Wicks should be 1/4 inch.

2. When lighting a candle for the first time, allow it to burn for at least 1 hour, or until the melt pool has reached the edges of the container. Blowing out a candle too early will create a tunnel and the wax will never melt entirely.

3. NEVER burn a candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Burning a candle for more than 4 hours can result in:
*Broken glass
*Severe sooting (black jars and black marks in your home)
*Mushrooming (the wick builds carbon, which can release dangerous sparks or cause an extremely large flame)
*Burn marks on the surface the candle has been placed on

4. Store your candles in a cool, dark area with the lid on tightly. This keeps the fragrance snuggly in the wax.

5. Keep the flame away from windows, fans, and other sources of moving air. This causes an unstable flame which can result in a burnt/sooted jar and an uneven burn.

6. Finally, replace your scented candles often. Soy candles are meant to hold fragrance for 6 to 12 months. After this time they can begind to lose their fragance.

No. It is extremely dangerous to burn a candle for longer than 4 hours. Extended burning can cause the jar to break, nearby surfaces to burn, and even dangerous sparks to shoot from the candle. Just like any natural fire, carbon builds on the wick surface of a candle. If burned for too long, this excess carbon results in an extra large flame, excess sooting, and possible fireball-like sparks.

YES. Trimming your wicks before lighting or re-lighting your candles is essential. Keeping a wick short ensures less soot, a larger melt pool, and a longer lasting candle.

Bath Products

All of our bath products are made with natural, organic ingtredients, and have been used on children as young as 4 months old. If your child has a skin condition, consult a physician before trying anynew product.

Great question! Believe it or not, we were exclusively a bath company before adding candles to the mix.

Back in 2011 we made bars of soap and bath salts only. After seeing a need for natural candles that actuallysmell great, we started the long process of testing candles.

As anyone who has ever made one will tell you, candles are not as easy as they look! It took until 2017 to finally figure out what worked best for us, and even now we are constantly changing to make improvements.

Yes, but please make sure to talk to your doctor first.

Our soaps were created with the sole purpose of helping those with skin issues find products that are fun but won't irritate or bother their skin. As someone who suffers with a skin disorder, the owner of Traveler's Apothecary sets a high standard for what can and can't go into a product.

Because we take pride in products that are safe for all skin types, some oils and fragrances cannot be used in our soaps. While harmless in a candle or wax melt, certain natural oils can cause irritation to the skin, especially to those suffering with skin conditions.
