How to Burn Soy Candles: The Quest to Waste Less!

Each time you burn your soy candle, we’re looking for a full melt pool each time. This takes time, about 2 to 3 hours, so plan ahead.


Take a look at the pictures below to see what we mean. Why care so much?! Well, these aren’t $5 paraffin wax, blue dye, chemical candles, so, we want you to get the most out of your R&S soy candle and to enjoy the clean fragrance experience to its fullest.
