More About Our Unique Candles

INMENDO candles are clean and natural burning products. We work with soy wax because it is a renewable resource and carbon neutral; it burns more cleanly and for a longer period of time than paraffin. Our candles are made with the finest fragrance oils, free from heavy metals, phthalates, and are thus safer for inhalation.

Depending on size, our candles will typically burn for 20-40 hours. Our recommended burn time is 2-3 hours. Always allow the melt pool to reach the edges of the jar before extinguishing - this is especially important with our soy candles. Doing so not only allows for even burning, but prevents "tunneling" and the creation of a “memory ring.” Once a candle has this “memory ring,” it will continue to tunnel and to burn that way for the life of the candle. This can reduce the life of the candle and it just doesn’t look pretty!

Be sure to trim the wick to 1/4" before each lighting with a simple finger pinch. As a safety precaution, never leave wick trimmings (matches or other debris, for that matter) in your candle vessel! Never leave a candle unattended or in reach of children, pets or a draft. Allow the vessel to cool completely before handling.
The glass can get hot on the bottom as the flame nears the base of the jar and most of the wax has been consumed. When about 1/2" of wax remains, discontinue use of candle. Once cool, chip out the remaining wax and use soap and water to remove the waxy residue.
