Is there such a thing as "triple or double scented" candles?
No, Candle wax can hold only a certain amount of scent per pound. If you exceed that amount the fragrance oil would work its way out of the wax and rest on top of your candle.
Do all candles have cotton wicks?
No! Some Candles contain lead. All the wicks used at Boinkle are Cotton, Paper and or Hemp. Led and Zinc can be harmful.
Is trimming my candle wick that important?
Most Definitely! Keeping your wick trimmed is very important. The wick should be trimmed to 1/4" roughly every 4 hours of burn time. To trim your candle wick, simply extinguish the flame, when the candle has reached room temperature, simply trim the wick to 1/4" before relighting. Trimming the wicks will keep the candle burning without any black soot and it will give your candle a longer burn time. If you burn candles often, you may want to consider purchasing a "wick trimmer" tool.
Why Burn Soy Candles?
Soy Wax is Natural
Derived from the soybean, soy wax is hydrogenated vegetable oil that turns to a solid at room temperature. Soybeans are a natural, renewable source grown in many regions by local farmers. Using candles made from soy supports local agriculture and farmers, allowing them to make money and grow their operations. Biodegradable and free from pesticides and herbicides and is non GMO.
Soy Wax Delivers a Cleaner Burn
A candle made from soy wax burns cleaner with little soot released as the candle burns. Soy candles are also non-toxic, so they won't release toxins into the air as they burn.
Soy Candles Last Longer
Soy candles typically last 50% longer than a paraffin candle of the same size. The reason behind the longevity of soy candles is the slower burning time and cooler burning temperature of the soybean-based wax. You may pay more for a soy candle initially, but the longer-lasting burn means you won't have to buy new candles as often.
Are all "Soy Candles" pure Soy?
No, some companies claim their candles are soy but make sure you ask them if they use 100% soy wax. Some companies mix soy wax with paraffin wax or beeswax and state they are soy candles. This is not wrong to do but it is very misleading to those looking for a healthier candle product. By adding soy with additional waxes you will most likely not be able to enjoy all of the benefit of a true soy candle such as little to no soot, a longer burn time and a healthier candle - which are very important to most people. Boinkle soy candles are indeed 100% soy wax.
Is it true soy candles have a memory?
Yes it is true. When you burn your candle for the first time, allow your candle to burn until it has a complete melt pool from edge to edge. In addition, keep the wick trimmed between each use to 1/4" at all times. If you follow these two simple candle rules we guarantee a long lasting and cleaner burning candle.
Easy to clean up with soap and hot water eliminating solvents.

Soy Wax Melt Tips:
To use these wax melts, simply place 1/2 to the entire shot or 1-2 cubes in your tea light burner or electric wax burner. The wax can be reheated and cooled several times until the desired fragrance is no longer met. Never add cubes to wax that has already been heated several times, always take out the old wax first before putting a new cube in your warmer. To remove the old wax, place the wax tray (if there is one) into the freezer for 5-10 minutes; the old wax should come out easily. Or you can use a cotton ball to soak up the wax after it’s melted and clean out the tray before adding a new
