We're very proud that our Hidden Candles are hand-poured in New York, USA using these ingredients: - Natural soy wax - Cotton wick - Natural essential oils - Glass jar Plus, of course, your hidden message in a glass vial!
The hidden message is inside of the candle (yes - inside!) The message is put in a small glass vial which becomes visible as the wax melts.
As the wax melts, the vial that contains your hidden message becomes visible. Once the wax around the vial is melted, you can blow out the candle and remove the vial with tweezers. (You will get a set of step-by-step instructions on how to remove the vial when purchasing a candle)
Every message is different. Depending on the collection, your message will be something unique! (For example, if you order from our Fortune Collection, your message will contain a fortune-telling / inspirational message. If you order from our Love Letter Collection, the message will be something sweet and romantic)
Great question! Here are a few tips:
1. Make sure you liquify the whole top layer of wax when you first light your Hidden Candle. This helps the whole candle burn evenly.
2. Keep your wick trimmed! Wicks burn best at around a ⅛ inch height. You can use a wick trimmer or scissors to do trim your wick after each burn.
3. We know it can be tempting to keep your Hidden Candle lit all day, but it'll last longest when you burn it for no longer than 4 hours each time. Don't worry, your house will already smell incredible by then!
4. Once you've finished your Hidden Candle, you have two jobs to do... Firstly, head to HiddenCandle.co to order another and, secondly, re-use your jar! They can be used to hold makeup brushes, a tea light, a cute coffee jar or even as a plant pot! Tag us on Instagram with pics of your creative up-cycled jar ideas!
