Sometimes candles will have changes in colour or wicks will act up, but these issues are all a result of burning an all natural candle. The following list shows a few naturally occurring imperfections of soy candles and natural fiber wicks. Please keep in mind that none of these will change the scent of your candle.
Frosting is a byproduct of a natural wax, and is caused by the accumulation of tiny crystals on the surfaces of the wax. All soy wax will frost over time, but luckily frosting is solely an aesthetic issue and does not affect the way your candle burns or smells.
BUMPY SURFACE AFTER BURNING The rough, bumpy tops after burning a soy wax candle are caused when the hot wax in the melt pool cools and solidifies at an inconsistent rate. This is a feature of soy wax, and not a sign you did anything incorrectly.
The "mushroom" shape sometimes seen at the end of a candle wick after burning is the result of carbon buildup. This happens when the flame consumes more fuel (wax + fragrance) than it can burn. It's a common occurrence. Remove the mushroom from the tip of the wick with wick trimmers and your candle will burn without any issues.
Yellowing can occur if the candle gets too much direct sunlight or sits near a fluorescent light. We do not use chemical stabilizers in our candles, which would stop this from happening, but we pride ourselves on offering a chemical free candle. This does not change the scent of the candle.
Sometimes the wax will pull away from the side of the jar to create a shadow effect. This is a natural occurrence and will not affect the integrity of the candle.
