Crafted from pure coconut wax and soy wax with a wooden wick, this hand-poured candle is redolent with invigorating natural ingredients including Eucalyptus, Hemp, and Citrus. Wooden wicks need a bit of tending before each burn- similar to cotton wicks. Before each burn, be sure to gently snap off the ash or burnt wood along the top edge of the wick and then light as usual. When burning the candle for a long period of time, you may notice the flame height getting low. If this happens, tap off excess ash or burnt wood along the top of the wick. Then the flame will return to its proper, optimal height.
