This is a favorite of many. Even when unlit this candle gives off a sweet strawberry scent. The candle is a soy blend and is hand poured and packaged. Also, With every candle purchase $1 is donated to the Feeding America charity. This charity provides food to pantries across America. $1= 10 meals the pantry can provide! Candle Care: When first burning your candle make sure to let the wax melt all the way to the edges. On the initial burn this may take 2.5 hrs. If you don't the candle may make a tunnel and you may have wax left over on the sides. Also, keep your wick trimmed to 1/4 inch. Burn time: If you follow the above instructions you should get 40+ hrs out of your candle! I make each item with care, and I won't put anything out that I am not satisfied with. Feel free to contact me if you have any concerns.
