Bring a sense of calm into your home with the Kaufmann Soy Candle. The lavender and mint scent creates a cleansing atmosphere, so the candle is well-suited for the bathroom. Light it when you are filling the tub for a long soak or lathering up for a morning shave. Made with all-natural ingredients, the soy and beeswax blend will burn slowly and steadily for up to 65 hours.
Each candle is hand-poured by an established perfumer and candle maker who runs a small workshop in New York. First, the glass vessels are prepared by applying a thin copper line by hand, then fired in kilns at a temperature of 2000° Fahrenheit so the copper line is permanently inked onto the glassware.
Meanwhile, the wax formula is melded together in large holding tanks for several hours, and transferred to smaller vessels where the pure essential oils are added.After being measured out and heated to around 150° Fahrenheit, the wax is poured by hand into the glassware. Once filled, the candles cool slowly for two to three hours.
“Cooling cannot be accelerated,” the candle maker explains. Decreasing the temperature slowly is done by placing heat-reflective covers over large containers filled with candles. The cotton wick is then carefully applied with a special tool. Since inserting the wick can disrupt the naturally flat wax surface, the candles are reheated until the smoothness is restored. When they cool to room temperature (which can take several hours), the candles are reheated one last time to ensure a perfect surface. The wicks are trimmed to 1/4-inch, so the candle is ready to be lit as soon as it arrives in your home.
Prior to each lighting, ensure that the wick is trimmed to 1/4-inch. We recommend that the candle burns for no less than one hour and no more than three hours at a time.
Place the candle on a temperature-safe surface while lit, and allow to cool completely before moving. Do not allow wick trimmings or water to accumulate in the wax pool. When only 1/2-inch of wax remains, discontinue use of the candle.
