Our Recycled Wine and Spirit Candles feature 100% soy wax candles handcrafted out of a variety of recycled wine, liquor, and champagne bottles. We take discarded bottles and reuse them in a creative way. By cutting off the tops of the bottles and smoothing out the edges, we create a unique vessel to house all natural, great smelling candles. Handcrafted in North Carolina, these bottles have imperfections which is what gives them character!
*Glass color and shape will vary based on availability (brown, blue, clear, green).
Recycled Wine and Spirit Candles
The first time you burn the candle, allow pool of wax to extend to outside rim of jar to set its "memory." Each time you burn the candle, it will "remember" to burn out to the rim. Rule of thumb: Burn one hour for every inch of your candle's diameter.
Keep wicks trimmed to 1/4" and centered. Trimming your wick is one of the most important tips we can share.
Extinguish flame by dipping wick into the melted wax pool, then reposition. This will help eliminate smoking or "afterglow." We don't recommend using the lid because it can stain the glass and leave smoke marks.
