At Waxing Kara, we use soy wax with a little beeswax from our hives in each batch. Adding beeswax is our way of putting a little bit of our farm into the product while at the same time adding a little bit of a soft yellow glow. Beeswax also adds some extra burn time to the product. Our wicks are 100% cotton. Our fragrance oils are Phthalate-Free. Average burn time 15-17 hours.
Weight: 3.5 ounces. Measures 3″ x 2″.
Ingredients: Natural Soy Wax, Phthalate-Free Fragrance Oil, Beeswax, 100% Cotton Wick.

- Never leave a burning candle unattended.
- Keep burning candles away from any flammable objects.
- Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
- Trim candlewicks to ¼ inch each time before burning.
- Be sure the candleholder is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface.
- Never leave wick trimmings, matches, or any other material in the wax pool.
- Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents & ceiling fans.
- Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room.
- Never touch a burning candle or move a container candle when the wax is liquid.
- Handle burning container candles with care. The melted wax and flame can cause the containers to be too hot to handle.
- When the wax level is from 1/4 to 1/2 from the bottom of container, you should discontinue use and avoid the possibility of the container cracking.
- Make sure a candle is completely extinguished and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
- Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers repeatedly, or the flame becomes too high.
What are Phthalates anyway?
Phthalates are chemicals that are added to plastic to make it flexible. Some of them are known endocrine disrupters. They are found in some of the most surprising places, like in water bottles, hairspray, nail polish and lotions. When we first started making candles, we made only fragrance-free candles. There were a number of good reasons why, but our customers taught us that they like candles to emit aroma. After some research we added fragrance to our candles. We will only use phthalate-free fragrances. Most are blends of man-made fragrance combined with essential oils. If you want to read more about phthalates, these are our sources: Toxipedia and CCCEH.
