Anwen candles are handmade in Poland from natural soy wax, which is biodegradable and environmentally friendly.
The wax we use is characterized by a melting point of 47-54 °C and slow-burning. It is also free of petroleum, its derivatives, as well as herbicides, pesticides, and toxins. The wax burns 50% slower than paraffin, and the scent lasts longer. Candles made of soy wax produce 90% less carbon dioxide than those made of paraffin.
The candle should burn long enough to let the top layer of wax melt over the entire surface. This allows the development of the scent and prevents tunneling. Each time you use a candle, be sure to trim the wick to about 0.5 cm. With this simple step, the flame will burn evenly. Do not blow out the candle! Extinguish the candle by blocking the airflow, e.g. using the lid of a jar.
Do not leave candles unattended. Keep them out of reach of children or pets and away from flammable items.
