Q: do your candles cause soot?

A: It is advised that before each new burn, the wick be trimmed down to 1/4".  While our non-toxic, soy blend wax, our formula and candle making procedures cause minimal to no soot, this will help reduce it. As the candle starts to get low, towards the end, there may be slight soot. No worries, it is natural. However, if there is a lot of soot on the jar during the initial burning, please let us know.
