Frequently Asked Questions

Candle Safety

  • Never leave burning candles unattended or out of sight
  • Always place the candle on a safe, heat resistant surface while the candle is in use
  • Keep out of reach of children and pets
  • If black smoke or soot is observed, extinguish the flame immediately. This is caused by letting the wick get too long, or the candle is located in a drafty area.
  • Burning times may vary depending on the fragrance, colour and climatic conditions.

Country Home Candle Co. Inc. only uses the finest 100% cotton wicking in all of its products. The 100% cotton wick is attached to a safety tab which stops the candle from burning to the bottom of the jar.

Soy vs. Paraffin: Decoding the Candle Debate

At Country Home Candle, we're here to break down the soy vs. paraffin debate without the frills. Customers often ask us about these waxes, so let's get straight to the facts for your home.

Soy Wax: Soy waxes come from soybean oil, processed through mechanical pressing and hydrogenation. It's non-toxic, burns cleanly, and stays colorless.

Paraffin Wax: Paraffin waxes, born from crude oil, are still natural, non-toxic, and boast a clean burn. They're good at keeping water at bay.

The Straight Talk: Concerns often focus on paraffin's safety, but truth be told, both soy and paraffin can produce some soot. The real issue is the chemicals. Paraffin may release some, but it's usually minimal.

Soy, while cleaner, has its quirks. A chunk of U.S. soybeans is genetically modified and treated with pesticides, potentially leading to chemical emissions in some soy candles.

Simple Wisdom: Keep it moderate – that's the key. Burn candles in well-ventilated spaces with trimmed wicks to avoid potential health concerns.

Scent and Time: Paraffin tends to give a stronger scent throw due to its molecular density. Soy, denser, promises a longer burn time.

Your Choice: Now that you've got the basics, the choice is yours. Paraffin offers a clean burn with a robust scent, while soy, a renewable option, gives a lasting glow. Whatever you choose, it's a Country Home Candle choice, tailored for your home.
