Soy Candle Care

Soy Candle Care Guide.

Our candles are made from 100% pure soy wax.

  • We never add beeswax or other waxes and we use a complex blend of essential oils and perfume.
  • Common paraffin candles are made from petroleum (mineral wax), which is considered not good for humans, pets or the environment.

Care Instructions.

  • Each Aery candle has been tested to burn for the optimum results.
  • Using clean-burning GMO-free European grown soy with lead free cotton wicks.
  • With a little simple care and minimal maintenance your candle will produce a wonderful experience every time.

Trim the Wick.

  • As with wicks on any candle, the carbon build-up can eventually fall into the melt pool and sink to the bottom which will effect the burn.

  • If this does occur with your candle it's important to trim this build up off.

The Melt Pool.

  • Ensure melt pool reaches the sides of the vessel on first burn, and ideally on all subsequent burns.

  • For the best results, burn your candle for 2-4 hours at a time.

  • Allow the wax to melt right to the edges of the glass evenly each time achieving a full “melt pool” before extinguishing.

  • Short burns may result in a “tunnelling” effect which can occur when the candle is extinguished after short burns and so is unable to produce a wide melt pool.

  • Candles made from 100% soy wax have a ‘memory’ and ideally they should reach a full melt pool on first burns especially.

  • If your candle is extinguished prior to allowing a full melt pool being achieved, it’s likely that following burns will not go past the first one.

  • If this happens try leaving the wick long and not trimming prior to burning.

  • If your candle starts to pool to one side it could be due to a draft or an uneven surface or a leaning wick.

  • Fix this by adjusting the wick to the correct position.


  • If you are experiencing smoke from the wick, it is most likely due to not trimming.

  • The wicks may give a small amount of smoke when first lit however once they achieve ample heating they will burn without smoke.

  • If smoke persists it is most likely a wick that needs trimming or a draft that is not allowing ample heat to generate. 

Tops Tips.

  • Ensure melt pool reaches the sides of the vessel on first burn, and ideally on all subsequent burns.

  • Always trim the wick to 10mm before re-lighting.

  • Clear any debris before each lighting

  • Keep out of drafts and rotate periodically.

  • Keep out of direct sunlight and sources of heat.

Keep out of reach of children and pets. 
Burn within sight and never leave a burning candle unattended.
The vessel may become hot during use.
Never move a hot burning candle.
