candle care & safety

Candle Information

Here at Lexscentials we use 100% soy wax in our candles. Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated. The hydrogenation process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated. This process dramatically alters the melting point of the oil, making it a solid at room temperature. Soy wax is  vegan, eco-friendly, renewable, American grown, sustainable and carbon neutral. 

Candle Care

Allow candle to cool completely before handling. Always burn candle on heat resistant, level surface. Do not burn around flammable materials. 

Instructions for burning: Keep wick(s) trimmed to 1/4". Keep wax free of any foreign debris. Never burn more than 4 hours at a time. Keep away from drafts. Discontinue use when only 1/2" of wax remains.
