Basil & Rue candles are made with all natural soy wax and are hand poured, so that each candle is unique. We strive to create candles that are in their utmost natural state. There is no color added to the natural soy wax and we use a custom blend of pure essential oils and fragrant oils; our candles remain dye-free, paraffin-free and phthalate-free. Soy candles are non-toxic, biodegradable and clean burning, meaning they produce less soot than paraffin candles. Every candle is made carefully by hand to ensure optimized performance and maximum enjoyment.
Hand crafted in Philadelphia, PA.
Here are some tips to assure you get the most from your BASIL & RUE candle experience:
- Upon lighting the candle for the 1st time, make sure to burn the candle long enough for the wax to melt all the way to the edge — for at least one hour to prevent wax tunneling and to optimize candle life. This will allow for a nice clean and even burn every time.
- Always keep the wick trimmed to 1/4 of an inch. Take care to ensure the wax has hardened before trimming to keep the wax pool free from trimmings and debris.
- Always burn your candle on a even heat resistant surface.
- Keep it out of drafts and never burn candles for longer than three hours at a time.
Burn time: 65-70 hours
