ILLUME® is committed to crafting environmentally conscious products, but candles cannot be certified organic. That said, our candles are crafted from either an FDA-approved food-grade paraffin (like the wax used on vegetables at the grocery store; ours is edible, too), or our proprietary all-natural blend of coconut wax, beeswax and essential oils. The wax type depends on the application. Our wax is the foundation for a clean burn and, combined with a metal-free wick and proper care, should provide the cleanest burn possible. Additionally, all of our fragrances are free of harmful phthalates and all packaging is made from recycled materials, are recyclable, or are in vessels designed for reuse.
- The first time you burn a candle, let it burn until the wax pool melts all the way to the edge. For a larger candle this may take a few hours. Wax has "memory," so if is extinguished with just a partial pool, it will struggle to ever get to a complete melt pool. Sometimes this takes some planning ahead but will make a huge difference if you haven't tried it before.
- Trim your wick each time you light the candle, removing any wick 'bloom' from the previous burn. We like 1/4"-1/2". Our wicks are crafted to self-extinguish at the bottom 1/2" or so, for safety. At that point you can freeze the container for a few hours, pop the wax out carefully with a butter knife, and hand wash so you can reuse the vessel.
