Other Soy Candle FAQ’s

Q: Are Soy candles really 100% organic?
A: Soy wax is 100% organic, but all candles contain some form of a synthetic ingredient in them. Although dyes or fragrances are extracted from natural ingredients, they maybe partially synthetic, however, that doesn’t mean that they contain harmful or hazardous solvents. Anyone who tells you that their dyes and fragrances are 100% organic is probably pulling your leg! A truly 100% soy candle is a candle that has no dye and no fragrance.

Q: What are double-scented and triple-scented candles?
A: FAKE!  You can only use a certain amount per pound of wax and adding more fragrance oil to the wax can cause it to become dangerous.

Q: Can I use soy candles if I have soy allergies?
A: Most soy allergies involve food additives, so just don’t eat the candle, you will be fine.

Q: My Mel’s Smells candle has white patches or the top is flaky and crater like is there something wrong with my candle?
A: There is nothing wrong with the candle. Because of the organic properties of the candle, white patches, called frosting, and craters occur normally when the wax melts and cools again. Depending upon the temperature we pour our candles this may be a result, but it not affect the quality of the scent throw or burn.

Q: What is a Candle Nose?
A: This is a term used in the candle industry which simply means our brains get used to smells and our perception of scents gets  reduced and we may not smell them anymore. This is very obvious with smokers who don’t realize how their homes smell like ashtrays. So, it is not a good idea to burn the same scented candle for long periods because you will stop recognizing the scent. If you switch scents often, you’ll get much more enjoyment from your scented candles.
