Interesting Facts

  • Did you know that soy wax candles can be called soy wax if there is as little as 25% soy wax used? If soy wax candles are stand alone, that is, in a pillar or votive style, they may contain paraffin. 100% pure soy wax candles melt like oil so they must be in a container. Erica Soy Candles uses 100% pure soy wax in all candles, tea lights and melts.


  • You can burn your soy candles too long. The maximum recommended burn time is 4 hours per burn. Burning longer than the recommended time is also dangerous, especially when combined with improper wick trimming. Although we use heat-safe glass, an improperly trimmed wick can create a high flame and temperature forming a deep melt pool and fatigue the glass.


  • Soy wax cleans up easily with soap and water, but remember it is still a wax and should not be poured down the sink.
