What are Candle Freak candles made from

Our candles are hand made with 100% natural soy wax and are white in colour (no artificial dyes or additives) They are mixed with high quality fragrance oils (Phthalate free) to give a lovely clean, long burning candle.
We use natural cotton wicks with a paper core.


Why does my candle have white crystals around the edges

This is called Frosting, It is a crystal growth of the vegetable oils around the edges of your candle. It is a natural characteristic of soy and is a way that you can tell that your candles are made with 100% pure soy wax.

Frosting can be prevented by using additives in the candle wax but we prefer to use 100% natural soy wax.
Frosting does not affect the performance of your candle in any way, it just adds a bit of character to your natural candle.


Why does my candle look like it has air bubbles in it

These are called Wet Spots. They occur where the soy wax has not adhered fully to the sides of the jar and they can look like air bubbles against the glass.
While we do our best to avoid these, but sometimes they just occur. However rest assured they won't affect the quality or the burning of yur candle.

They are usually caused by expansion and contraction of the soy wax during the setting process, seasonal temperatures can also affect wet spots.
