Coconut wax is produced by pressing the oil out of the coconut meat, then putting the oil through the process of hydrogenation. It is then filtered and cleaned, giving you 100% natural, and fully biodegradable wax.
Coconuts are a renewable and high yield crop, which means less coconuts are needed to our product. This makes it one of the most eco-friendly waxes on the market! Along with being sustainable, there are other major benefits:
Coconut wax burns slower than any other wax on the market so you can enjoy one of your favorite candles for longer! Since it also has an even burn, you can enjoy all of what the candle has to offer instead of being left with half the product stuck to the sides!
Ever notice a black mark where your candle is burning? The reason for that is non-coconut wax candles have toxins in the wax.
Coconut candles are non-toxic. They burn cleaner than all other wax candles so you don’t need to worry about the potential of carcinogens being released into your home.
Fragrances blend wonderfully with coconut wax, giving your candle a strong hot scent throw. What that means is that when your candle is lit, the scent should fill your room..
Like everything, popularity growth means mass production. Thankfully, unlike the palm oil industry, the coconut industry has found a way to avoid around this problem by giving the locals a chance to make a living.
Local farmers grow the coconut trees on their land, without pesticides or herbicides, and harvest the coconuts by hand so there is no need for giant tractors.
GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. This is a process that changes things at the genetic level to increase yields, harvests and other things. These days most fruits and vegetables have been genetically modified, but the coconuts are one of the very few left that have remained untouched.
This means that the coconut wax used in our candles is totally pure! Not even pesticides are used while farming, due to the hard protective exterior of coconuts that naturally ward off insects and wildlife.
These one of a kind hand made vessels are a beautiful addition to any room. Let your imagination run wild for ways to use the vessel after the candle burns down. Hairline cracks are very common in concrete and dough bowls and may occur in your vessel, it should not affect the way your candle burns. We cannot guarantee this will not happen. Both are natural materials, if there are any signs of deterioration it is time to replace your vessel.
To remove remaining wax in concrete pop in the freezer for an hour or so, it should come right out. Then when the vessel is at room temperature wash with warm soapy water. Never pour boiling water into your vessel as this time will most likely make it crack. Dough bowl remaining wax should be easy to scoop out. Both have been sealed with a water-based protective sealer. The dough bowl was also sealed with a flame retardant however, with washing and use over time this will deplete. To get the most from your vessels don’t wash repeatedly and please don’t place in the dishwasher.
Note: Lemon juice, red wine and oily foods may stain the concrete. Place parchment paper on the bottom before using with food. This should help protect the surface from staining.
Suggested After Candle Usage: Dough bowls make great centerpieces. During winter use pinecones, moss, ornaments, antlers, candles and greenery. In fall use pumpkins, pinecones, leaves, greenery, acorns and nuts, add branches and candles.
Concrete vessels make great planters for succulents, potpourri, makeup brushes… just let your imagination flow!
