Candle Care

Our .candles are handmade using natural soy.  Each one may vary slightly.  Consistency may vary, however rest assured they are poured with love. 

We are vegan friendly, not tested on animals, and use lead free cotton wicks.

xo Brown Girl Candle Care Tips:

  • For best results, trim wicks prior to burning and avoid burning longer than 3 hours at a time.

  • For an even burn, allow the melt pool to reach across to the edges before extinguishing.  This avoids wasting wax on the sides.  If you blow your candle out before it reaches across the sides, then every burn thereafter will only make it that far.

  • Never leave or move a lit candle.

  • Always keep out of reach of children and pets.

  • Avoid exposure to drafts.

  • Never leave a lit candle unattended.

  • Always store the candle in a cool dry place, away from sunlight.

  • Discontinue burning when there is 1cm of wax left in the jar.

  • Wash and re-use.

Failure to follow instructions could result in fire, hazard, or injury.

Reuse Our Candle Jars:

When finished burning your candle, clean out any left over soy wax and repurpose your jar for storage or for planting.

How to clean:

  1. Pour boiling water in container and allow the candle cool until left over wax has floated to the top and hardened and easy to grab out.  
  2. Then wash with warm soapy water 


  1. Put the jar in the freezer for 3 hours
  2. Use a butter knife and chip the remaining wax out.
  3. Then wash with warm soapy water 

* Do not dump wax down your drain.
