Let’s talk about sweating

Let’s talk about sweating! 😅 ⁣

Those beads or puddles of oil on top of a candle are extremely common, particularly in summer.☀️⁣

You can leave it or dab it away with a tissue. Sweat does not affect the burn quality or scent throw and generally sweat will not show up again after your first burn.⁣

100% soy candles are notorious for sweating.🌿⁣

Soy wax is sensitive to extreme temperature changes, causing the natural oils to separate from the wax, leaving the pools of oil we see on top.💦⁣

Paraffin wax (mineral by-product) doesn’t sweat, so if your candle sweats you can be assured you have a natural product.💚⁣

Sometimes there’s no obvious reason why a candle sweats. I can have 6 candles lined up, all poured at the same time from the same jug of wax, and after they set only one of of them sweats.🤷‍♀️ ⁣

Bottom line… don’t worry about it, enjoy your candle!🕯️
