What are your candles made of?
MAR Fragrances scented candles are made with all-natural soy wax, wooden wicks, and scented oils. Just wax, wick, and scent with no other additives or dyes.
Where are your candles and wax melts made?
Both candles and wax melts are hand-poured by myself with love in Ireland.
Do you have a store I can visit in-person?
Not as of yet but I will be stocked in other retail shops soon.
Why should I trim the wick and only burn your candles for 2-4 hours at a time?
These are common instructions and good practices for any candle and are meant to prolong a candle’s burn time. A longer wick creates a larger flame, a larger flame melts the wax faster, and the wax melts faster than the wick burns away. So the longer your candle burns, the larger the flame gets, causing your candle to melt faster and faster. Keeping the wick trimmed and burning 2-4 hours at a time slows everything down so you get a longer burn time. It also gives a clean burn as you are removing the char from the wick.
Additionally, burning your candle for 2-4 hours at a time ensures that the wax melts all the way to the edge of the container. The melted wax (not the flame) is what gives off your candle’s scent, so this will maximize your candle’s scent when lit. It will also prevent your candle from “tunneling”, or burning a hole down the center of the candle while leaving a ring of un-melted wax along the inside of the container.
What short should I trim my wick?
Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch to ensure your candles burns gently.
How quickly will my order ship?
We make every effort to ship your orders as quickly as possible. Delivery within the republic of Ireland takes 1-2 business days.
What makes an all-natural soy wax candle different?
While paraffin wax is refined from crude oil, soy wax is made from soybeans- a completely renewable resource. Compared to paraffin, soy wax burns cleaner with no petrol-carbon soot. Soy wax also burns slower than paraffin, so soy wax candles also last longer.
