90-95% of a scented candle is wax. The wax used in candles is one of the most significant contributors to scent throw, lifespan, and burn quality.
At Pour & Penchant, we created our wax blend to produce a highly fragrant, clean, and evenly burning candle experience. Our wax is a proprietary blend of all-natural coconut and apricot waxes. The precise blending of our all-natural waxes is key to the craftsmanship of a quality candle. Our proprietary wax blend is vegan, gluten-free, toxin free, paraben free, phthalate free and comes from renewable sources.
Our all-natural cloth wicks are constructed from reinforced ring-spun cotton that burns with a tighter curl for a consistent and even flame. It is essential to properly maintain your wicks between burn cycles by trimming them to 1/4 inch. Trimmed wicks burn cleaner and extend the life of the candle while optimizing fragrance diffusion. Our wicks are lead and zinc free.
The cure time is the waiting period before lighting a candle. It is our observation that 45 days is the optimal cure time for a fully developed hot throw. Waiting the appropriate cure time will optimize candle performance and fill your home with a high intensity, room-filling fragrance. All of our candles cure a full 45 days prior to selling.
