Hot Apple Cider
Fall candles are my favorite, but you may have noticed I don't have a lot of bakery scents up. This one is an exception.
Hot Apple Cider is one of my favorite smells. I still recall a historical fall festival I attended in the northeast where a woman threw hard spices like cinnamon sticks and cloves into a large cast iron pot simmering with recently harvested red apples. The smell was irresistable, and this was the closest I could come to that moment.
This is a dual cotton wick coconut wax candle (it doesn't smell like coconut, that's removed when the oil is refined) that has about 80 hours of burn time (in 4 hour maximum increments, of course). The vessel is a gorgeous, thick walled garnet color that is easily repurposed.
Candles preform their best when we play by their rules! Here's our recommendations:
-Always burn in sight, and away from anything that could knock it over: kids or pets, for example.
-Burn away from draft prone areas like around fans or windows
-Never burn for more than 4 hours at a time, but do burn it until the melted wax reaches the sides. If you burn the candle for too short a time it could "tunnel" and the wax will build up on the sides.
-Always trim your wicks to 1/4 inch before lighting. If your wick is too high it can start too soot, and burn too hot.
-Stop burning your candle when you're down to the last 1/4 inch of wax in the bottom of the container. You can use the remaining wax in a melter. On our instagram page, we have resources for how to clean your vessels!
