How come I don't smell my soy candle as soon as I light it?
Soy candles work well for holding onto the scent from essential oils. Because they burn more slowly, the scent is gradually released, creating a more pleasant atmosphere for most people.
What is the wet stuff on top of my candle?
Since soybean wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax, it can release excess fragrance or essential oils, which it cannot hold. Sweat from soy candles does not affect the quality of the candle or burn. After you burn it for the first time, the sweat drops will not show up again. You can leave it or wipe it out with a tissue or paper towel.
