WHY SOY?

That's easy, we are concerned for the planet and we love our customers! 

 Soy candles are really great in many other ways too:

  • Burns more than 50% longer
  • Clean, safe, non-toxic and biodegradable
  • Renewable resource
  • When blended correctly Soy's burning nature can cause better fragrance disbursement

Really...why would we use anything else?

In my house...allergies abound and paraffin candles would always cause a funny, itchy cough when they were burning.  Not so with Soy Candles, we just enjoy the wonderful fragrance without any throat irritation.  All of the enjoyment of candles with none of the coughing.

WHY REPURPOSE?

For a lot of the same reasons we use Soy Wax...it just makes sense.

We only have one planet and if we don't take care of it we will eventually regret it.  Plus, there are so many awesome options for Antique/Vintage containers it just takes a little work to bring them back to their former glory. 

AND finally, we believe the Farm Finds Antique and Vintage candles compliment a homes decor much better than any boring glass container. 

 AND...we truly believe "Life's too short for boring candles!!"

IMPORTANT CANDLE STUFF

Wick Trimming

  • Keep wicks trimmed to 1/4 inch at all times - trimmed wicks form less soot and don't smoke
  • Trim wicks about every 4 hours
  • TO TRIM:  Extinguish candle.  Let cool to room temp and trim with sharp scissors or wick trimmers. Re-light and ENJOY.

Candle Safety Tips

  • Extinguish candle when burns down to 1/2" from bottom of container to avoid excess heat
  • Do not leave lit candles unattended
  • Keep burning candles away from children and pets
  • Keep candles away from drafts and flammable materials
  • Place candles on heat resistant surfaces – use a tile or candle rug on wood tabletops.

WHEN SHOULD I RE-POUR MY CANDLE?

WHY DID MY CANDLE TUNNEL?

A First Burn with every candle is critical to the life of the candle.  First Burn means that the first time you burn the candle you allow the candle to burn long enough to melt the entire top to the candle.  Can take up to 3 o4 4 hours.  Tunneling is often caused when you do not allow for a successful First Burn.

See the BLOG section for this volume formula

WHAT IS A SAMPLER CANDLE AND HOW DO I POUR ONE?

A Farm Finds Sampler Candle is a candle poured in layers of fragrance.  These fun candles gradually change from one fragrance to another as they burn.  

That's the beauty of the Farm Finds system.  We have made it so easy to create amazing Antique and Vintage candles.  Plus, we provide you easy to follow instructions so everyone can easily pour candles.  You will find it becomes an addiction!!  But in a good way!!

The secret to these fun sampler candles is to let each layer cool well before pouring the next layer.  Allow each layer of wax to cool at least an hour before pouring the next layer.  Remember, if you have a little wax left after a candle re-pour simply place the lid back on and finish using it next time you pour.

HOW DO I USE RUSTIC TARTS AND SCOOPABLE WAX?

These products are both perfect options for enjoying the amazing fragrances of Farm Finds without the flame.  They are intended to be used with a Tart Warmer.  This electric device has a small bowl on the top.  Place either a portion of a Rustic Tart or a couple spoonfuls of the Scoopable Wax into the bowl and let the wax melt.  The fragrance will fill the room just like a candle.  Plus, with the Scoopable Wax you can combine the fragrances and create your own custom fragrances.  Check out the BLOG for some fun and yummy Scoopable Fragrance Recipes.
