What makes Light & Lit Candles unique?

Should we tell you how our all-natural soy candles stand out by their elegant glow and fragrant aromas? And the way our frosted colored glass and cork lid can add a classy pop to any room? Or the fact that each candle is inspired by a timeless novel, with an intentionally chosen quote and scent to capture the essence of each book? We truly believe that each of our candles offers a full experience!

Why won't my candle burn all the way to the edges?

Candle wax has what's called a "memory". (It's science; we're not making this up.) This means the first time you burn it, you'll want to allow it to burn fully to the edge (generally 3 hours) before extinguishing it. This candle-sized melt pool then will easily melt the next time you light your candle. Extinguishing your candle before that point on the first burn can lead to tunneling, where the wick burns through the center but leaves wax around the edges unmelted. Thankfully, it's an easy fix by making your first burn several hours long!

Will my candle's fragrance fill a room?

We've gotten many compliments on how full, yet not overpowering, our fragrances are. No two spaces are alike, but you can generally expect a single candle to fill a living room or bedroom with its scent. Factors that will affect the reach of your candle's scent include ceiling height, airflow, and humidity levels in your home.
