New scent - Mysterious (lavender and amber)

New to our Yoga Collection is Mysterious, a custom blend of lavender and amber.

Mysterious - lavender and amber candles

This scent was inspired by a celebrity gifting to Stephanie Drapeau. As a member of The Artisan Group, we have the opportunity to gift items to various celebrities from time to time. When I read that one of her favorite fragrances is lavender and amber, I knew exactly what scent to create for her! I had already been experimenting with the lavender and amber combination, and this gift opportunity pushed this scent to the top of the list.

Combining the fresh, floral fragrance of lavender with the dark and musky scent of amber does not seem a likely combination at first thought. But the blend of the two is .... well, mysterious and very romantic.

Burning Your Candles: Tip #6

Recently, we received the following email:

The wick curled back into the candle the first time I lit it. I tried to "scoop" around it but have had no luck. I read your directions that came in the packaging. I did trim the wick before the first time I used it. Was I not supposed to do that?

Thank you, Shannon, for that question! Here is my response:

Candles sent directly from us should be trimmed to the proper wick length when shipped, so you should be ready to light your candle out of the box. My recommendation for you at this point would be to melt your candle on or under a warmer. When the melt pool reaches about 1/4" of an inch, gently pour the melted wax into a safe container such as a coffee or vegetable can. Allow the wax to harden, then burn again according to the tips which were sent to you. Here's a blog post which shows a warmer which could work for this purpose:

The good news is that you can continue to enjoy the fragrance while using a warmer to get your candle "in shape" again. Remember to gently pull the wick into center as the wax hardens - when the color starts to change and the wax becomes gel-like is a good time to start.

Burning Your Candles: Tip #5

For safety reasons, you should not burn a candle with less than 1/2" of wax. Most candles will extinguish themselves at the point as the head of the wick pin will be at that point or lower. However, what you can do with this, or any other candle which has a lot of wax is place it on a candle warmer similar to what is shown in this photo:

They are easily available at Hobby Lobby stores for around $5; they may be available in other craft or candle stores as well. If you don't have a candle warmer, you can cheat (as I do sometimes) and use the warmer on your coffee maker (just don't pour water into the carafe first!).

Using this method, you can enjoy your candle as long as the wax continues to give a good hot throw. Depending upon the amount of wax left and your usage, you may get another week or two out of the fragrance.

You can also use this method to clean the remaining wax from any jar candle. Melt the wax then pour it into a safe receptacle, such as an old coffee or vegetable can, wipe the jar with a paper towel to remove as much leftover wax as possible, then put your jar into the dishwasher. The water in the dishwasher will be hot enough to eliminate safely any drops of remaining wax without clogging your plumbing. You can then reuse any jars for other purposes, or take them to another chandler who may refill them for you.
