About Eight Hands Farm's Candles:
Our Beeswax Soy candles are made with a mix of pure beeswax & 100% soy wax that we blend ourselves. We use a phthalate-free premium fragrance oil that is infused with essential oils, two cotton wicks and made in a 14 ounce apothecary style amber glass jar that gives a beautiful glow when lit. They are clean burning, long lasting, highly fragrant and contain no paraffins, no phthalates, and produce no petro soot.
The approximate burn time on this size is 65 +hours.

Benefits of Beeswax & Soy Wax Candles:
Burning beeswax produces negative ions which helps to purify & neutralize pollutants in the air. They also omit a natural warm aroma and burn slower then most waxes which makes for a long lasting candle. Soy wax is also beneficial with it's clean burn and zero petro soot.
To ensure a long lasting candle, burn until the entire top of the candle is liquid wax (edge to edge) before extinguishing; do this with each use and especially on your initial burn to prevent tunneling and to get the most even burn. Also, Keep your wick trimmed to 1/4" inch each time to get a clean, even burn for the life of the candle. Do not burn for more then 4 hours at a time. Once the candle is down to 1/2" of wax it's time to discard of it.
