  • How do I trim my wick?
    When you trim your wick, you are prolonging the life of your candle by ridding the excess soot build up and helping decrease the amount of carbon released when your candle is burning. This should be done before relighting any candle, at any time. To trim your candle wick: Cotton wick: Use wick trimmers (available for purchase under accessories) to trim the wick of your candle to 1/4" before relighting. Dispose of the trimmed wick/soot. *The wick trimmer is specially designed to fit into jars of various depths and provide a surface to hold the excess wick as you lift it out of the jar. Wood wick: To ensure you do not remove too much of the wick, we recommend avoiding scissors or wick trimmers when caring for a wood wick. We recommend, using a tissue to gently remove any burnt wick/ash from the top of your wick. Dispose of the tissue and burnt wick/ash. 1/4"-1/2" of the wood wick should remain. It is okay for the top of the wick to be black when you relight your candle, as long as there is not excess ash hanging off of it.
  • Are the candles non-toxic?
    Yes, all ingredients used in our candles are non-toxic when used for its recommended purpose, AKA being warmed in the use of a candle/wax melt. Please do not consume any part of the candle.
  • Why is there an emphasis on non-toxic?
    Many common candle brands use a highly toxic ingredient called paraffin wax, which is derived from crude oil. Even refined paraffin wax, which is FDA approved, contains crude oil. Through studies, it has been deemed dangerous and can cause, nausea, headaches, fatigue and other symptoms when inhaled. Additionally, many fragrance oils these companies use in their candles contain phthalates, which are a plasticizer designed to hold the scent, however it is not necessary in the making of fragrance oil. If you have had bad experiences before with common candles, this may be the reason. Our candles are non-toxic when burning and do not emit the harmful chemicals that paraffin wax does. Additionally, the fragrance oils we use do not contain anything that is harmful to inhale, when used in the use of a candle/wax melt. Misty Candles are safe for all, but especially pets, children, elderly, and those with allergies and asthma *research has been concluded*.
