What are the burning hours?
With proper candle care, each of these tea light might last up to 4.5 hours, and if you're getting 6 in your box, that's 27 hours of burning time.
Why do your tea lights smell amazing?
Each of our tea lights is lovingly hand-poured for high quality and long-lasting scent. We only use 100% natural soy wax and premium fragrances to make our impressive tea lights. Soy wax holds aromas well, and due to the low melting point of the wax, the fragrance oils can be released slowly to live up to their full potential.
What type of wax do you use?
We only use 100% natural soy wax to make our soy tea lights. Soy wax is a plant-based wax which is non-carcinogenic, and non-toxic. Soy tea lights are more economical, as they burn 50% longer than candles made of paraffin waxes. Soy tea lights produce little or no soot at all and exceptional for those who have breathing issues and allergies.
What kind of fragrances do you use in your tea light candles?
We use both synthetic fragrances and essential oil blends to create our candles and melts. These fragrances are free from phthalates and paraffin, and non-toxic. Our fragrances are highly purified, safe and made from premium quality ingredients.
What are tea lights used for?
You can use them as a food warmer for fondue, for heating scented oil and to set afloat on the water for extra decoration. Impress your guest by placing some on the dining table when you have some guest over. Definitely recommending tea lights in small bedroom, office room and bathroom.
Is the tealight cups recyclable?
Yes, our clear plastic tealight cups are recyclable and are made with Underwriters Laboratories flame retardant plastic. The clear cups produce an impressively brilliant level of brightness and warmer light. Also, the temperature-resistant plastic has significantly lower heat dissipation – an essential safety feature as aluminium cups can become extremely and dangerously hot.
You bet! Any flat tea lights will float on the surface of the water. Add some fragrant flowers among the tea lights for an extra dose of positive energy.
Does tea light need a holder?
Because of their small sizes, using a tea light holder will provide a safe burning environment. Tea light holders come in different shapes and sizes. Or you can be creative by placing the tealights inside a mason jar, or recyclable candle jars or pick up some wax warmers as a candle holder.
Why does the tea lights start to change colour?
The tea light might change colour, and the surface might look a bit dry or flaky if the tea light hasn't been burnt for a while. This is because soy wax is a natural product. Just light the tealight, and the surface will return to normal.
Where are these candles made?
All our products are made in a city we chose to call our home, Wellington, New Zealand.
Are your soy tea lights Paraben and Phthalate free?
Our tea lights are made of soy wax, which is GMO-FREE, contains NO paraffin and NO unnatural additives. Soy waxes are biodegradable, renewable and environmentally safe. Many candles today are paraffin based. Petroleum products in candles can cause a smokiness that can build up over time on ceilings. Paraffin is one of the last by products of petroleum extraction. Some of the soot given off by paraffin candles is the same as burning diesel fuel. So there are documented concerns about the health affects this may have.
IMPORTANT: Never leave a tea light burning unattended or within reach of drafts, pets, or small children. Soy tea light will be hot after burning, so allow the wax to cool completely before handling. Never leave the tea lights on top of a plastic surface, even when using a candle holder.
