Frequently Asked Questions
We recommend allowing the organic soy to melt and pool until reaching the edges of the container, before blowing out your candle. This prevents tunneling and ensures an even burn surface.
Our recommended burn time is 3-4 hours. Refrain from leaving a burning candle unattended or in reach of children, pets or a draft. Be careful when making physical contact with the candle as the container may be hot. There are detailed safety instructions on the bottom of your container.
Inside the box for each of our scented candles you will find an instruction card with a unique code. All you need to do is enter that code along with the prayer of your choice by following this link. Once your custom prayer candle is ready and has been lit in the Kinkakuji Temple, you will receive an email with a confirmation photograph within 7 working days.
Yes, it’s part of our mission to ensure our products are 100% organic and cruelty free. We do everything to reduce our environmental footprint by using 100% vegan, sustainable soy wax, as well as cotton wicks.
We choose to work with soy wax for a variety of reasons. First off, soy wax is a 100% renewable resource and carbon neutral. We love that it burns more cleanly – and better yet – for longer periods of time when compared to paraffin. We also love the way our soy wax mixes with our organic fragrance oils.
Not only are out candles better for the environment, they are non-toxic and burn cleaner than paraffin wax.
Our candles produce as much as 90% less soot than paraffin wax. This soot can blacken walls and personal effects, contaminate your home and add toxic carcinogens into the air that you breathe.
