I’ve been on this safe for you bandwagon for years when our first was born in 2008. I’m so happy/over joyed for this company and all they stand for SAFE CLEAN ingredients matter. Thank you so much for an amazing candle scent it’s hard to pick a fav but this one is SO good!
I am new to Fontana and am obsessed! Thank you Fontana for being a candle I can burn with confidence knowing I am not contaminating my air.
This my favorite scent to burn in my leather workshop where there are so many other random odors. This scent is able to become dominant which I love and smells like Christmas! I have already burnt 1 candle tin completely to the bottom of this scent and 1/2 through my second candle of this scent.
Since being diagnosed with a thyroid disease 7 years ago, I have been slowly removing all toxic products out of my house. It was a blessing when someone recommended Fontana Candles to me. Even though they are more expensive, these candles are amazing! It is such a great relief knowing they are TRULY non-toxic and still smell amazing. This scent is my favorite, the perfect blend and not too light or strong. If you are on the fence about what scent to try, try this one first! It smells so good and is so healthy at the same time.
After finding mold in my infants nose when they were a baby from toxic candles, I've thrown this easy in search of no toxic and natural ways to freshen up my house. Well these candles are it. I've sent them to friends, sisters that are trying to conceive (non toxic life as much as possible etc). I feel so confident in these as gifts knowing they won't hurt people and the air that they breathe in. I feel like you don't even need to burn these very long for them to do their job. We also cloth diaper and can't smell them at all if we've had to go a day or two before a wash. Definitely a win there 😉.
We want you to have a great experience with your Fontana Candle so we are sharing tips we have discovered to create an optimal burn!
Because Fontana Candles are hand-made from natural ingredients, slight variations are to be expected. Beeswax expands and contracts, resulting in small cracks.
Always store your candle in a cool, dry place at room temperature and keep it away from direct sunlight and high humidity. Be sure to store your candle with the lid on.
The first time you burn your candle is extremely important. Allow the candle to burn until the melted wax reaches the edge of the container. This should take between 2 and 3 hours in our 14 oz candle. Burning the candle this length of time will prevent the wax from tunneling on the side of the jar. Candles that have tunneling have severely reduced burn time. The burn time will also be severely reduced if you burn your candles for longer periods of time. If you plan on burning your candles for longer than 3-4 hours at a time, we do recommend the large 14 ounce tin as that size is most suited for extended burn times.
It is also important to limit your burn time to approximately 3 to 4 hours, especially when burning the smaller 6 ounce tins. The wax and container get extremely hot. Please do not touch the container while your candle is burning. As always, burn your candle on a flat, flame retardant surface and never leave it unattended. If your wick becomes unstuck from the bottom of the jar or tin and travels to the edge, please stop burning it immediately. The jar can shatter if this occurs for too long. This typically occurs at the very end of the candle's burn. We recommend burning our tins on a coaster, and not directly on your furniture. The tin lid makes a perfect coaster! Please read the Candle Warning label located on the bottom of the candle.
We have found that the optimal burn for our candles is achieved with a short wick. Our wicks burn best when they are trimmed to approximately 1/4." This will require you to periodically trim the wick. No special tools are needed! This can be done by snapping the burnt ends off with your fingers. If your flame gets larger than 1 ½”, please extinguish the candle and allow it to cool. Once your candle cools, you can trim your wick to approximately ¼” to ½”. Remove the wick trimmings before relighting your candle.
