Soy Wax

Most candles in stores are made with paraffin which is composed primarily of petroleum oil wax, synthetic scents, and preservatives.  When burned, paraffin releases toxins that circulate throughout your home which can emit up to 11 documented toxins and two known carcinogens, Toluene and Benzene.  According to the American Lung Association®, "Paraffin wax candles have as many carcinogens as second-hand cigarette smoke causing harm to the heart, lungs, circulatory & nervous systems."   

The soy wax used by Grey Cabin Candles is from USA soybean farmers, it's 100% pesticide & GMO-free #renewableresources #madeintheUSA

100% Soy Wax & Cotton Wick vs. "Soy" Wax with Wooden Wick  #whatisthat?

Clean Burn

  • Soy candles are naturally vegetable based, non-toxic, & Simply healthier to burn
  • Soy wax burns 50% longer, with its slower burn time, and cleaner aroma;  Much more cost effective giving you twice the candle for your money
  • Soy wax releases the aromas more gradually and evenly
  • Much healthier for humans, pets, your home, and the environment
  • Grey Cabin Candles fragrance oils are 100% pure & Phthalate-free
  • Cotton wicks are 100% natural (Metal-free) to ensure a proper burn
  • Easy clean up with just soap & warm water

Since our candles are "Vegetable-derived," simply wash Vessel in warm water and re-use the vessel/container for something else fun. {Just don't toss the soapy wax down the drain, it can clog!}

Safety Tips

  • Keep out of reach of children and pets

  • Burn candles in a well-ventilated room

  • Keep candles out of any drafty area

  • Keep the candle on an even, heat-resistant surface

  • Never touch hot or molten wax 

  • Burn candles within sight, never leave a candle burning without supervision

  • Never add anything to the candle wax or melt pool - It can change the way the candle is meant to burn in very unpredictable ways, leading to fire hazards

  • Never burn a candle near curtains, bedding, drafty areas, home decorations, etc

  • Do not extinguish any candle with its lid;  A candle snuffer is best

  • Storage - Keep all candles out of extreme heat or cold

 

Burning Instructions

*Burn Times are approximate due to factors such as drafts & wick length

  • First time lighting, allow the candle to burn until the liquid wax covers the entire top; Performance is better and more even for future lightings

  • Keep wicks trimmed to 1/4 inch at all times

  • If there's a large flame, blow it out, trim the wick, re-light

  • Burn candles at a minimum of one hour per each inch diameter of the candle (2 inch diameter jar = 2 hours burn time)

  • Burning candles no longer that 3-4 hours increases overall burn time

  • Burn the candle long enough so there's a melting pool evenly across the diameter each time you burn the candle;  This increases burn time

  • Place the candle on an even surface; Never move it while burning hot

  • If the candle burns unevenly carefully rotate the candle every so-often to keep burning uniformly or move to another location without any draft;  Make sure the candle is on an "even" surface.

  • Obviously, smaller size candles waft better in a smaller area.  A 6 oz Travel Tin will not fill a huge room!

"The best way to extinguish a candle is to push the wick into the wax pool.  Using a candle snuffer, place the bell over the wick, this gradually deprives the flame of oxygen.  Dip the wick into the candle wax pool, eliminating smoke.  Bring the warm wick back to its upright position for the next lighting."
