FRAGRANCE: Softly fruity, the scent of freshly ripened summer figs with a hint of green.
LAFCO candles are hand poured in the USA and optimized to yield a 90-hour burn. Formulated with a specialty high soy content wax which burns cleaner than paraffin. Made with natural essential oil-based fragrances that burns richly and evenly, filling the entire space with fragrance. Each candle is made in a hand-blown art glass vessel whose sophisticated lines and vibrant colors will compliment any space, long after the wax has burned.
Clean burning soy-based wax and with a 100% cotton/ non-chemically treated wick. Each oversized hand-blown art glass vessel (approx. 4"x4") will have slight differences of size and color from piece to piece. This is to be expected and assures you that this is a hand made product.
To repurpose your hand blown glass when the candle is finished place the cup in the refrigerator /freezer to allow the remaining wax to shrink allowing for easy removal, and then pull out the metal wick holder. Wash with warm soapy water or in the dishwasher.
First Burn: Allow the candle to burn until the wax melts all the way to the edge of the glass - it could take up to 4 hours and varies by fragrance. This ensures that the candle will burn evenly thereafter.
Ideal Burning: LAFCO candles perform best when burned for 2 - 4 hours at a time. Ensure an even burn by keeping lit candles away from any drafts, open windows or air vents.
After the First Burn: Trim the wick to 1/4" before you relight each time. Do not let the trimmings, matches, or any other debris fall into the wax.
Center the Wick: Use a snuffer to gently center and straighten the wick after extinguishing. Never allow the wick or flame to touch the sides of the candle vessel.
Last Burn: Our candle is designed to self-extinguish, leaving up to 1/2" of wax left in the bottom of the glass. This is a safety measure to prevent the bottom of the glass from becoming too hot. If the candle does not self extinguish, stop burning when less than 1/2" of wax remains - do not let the candle burn all the way to the bottom.
