One of my favorite decorations at Christmas – my nativity scene! A reminder to not forget the real reason for the season! “For onto us a child is born, onto us a son is given: His name shall be called wonderful counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting father, the prince of peace.”
A classic holiday fragrance combines all the good things about Christmas! Orange spice notes from the kitchen, fir and pine notes from the tree, and earthy smokiness from the fireplace. Its Christmas Eve, and time to celebrate the birth of our savior, Christ Jesus!
Dirt Road Candle Co. candles are hand poured in small batches in Lewis, Iowa. We use pure, renewable, American grown soy wax infused with fragrances that are free of paraben & phthalate free fragrances. They are the cleanest non-toxic candles on the market! Variations in the look and texture of the wax will vary from candle to candle. These differences are not considered defects nor will they affect how your candle burns.
Allow your candle to reach a full melt pool during every burn. This is where the wax is completely melted around the whole diameter of the jar. This will ensure a clean, even burn for the life of your candle. Always keep the wick trimmed to 1/4".
Please note that the jars are reusable after your candle is finished. Simply pop the wick out of the bottom of your jar and dispose of it. Then, put the jar into the microwave until the remaining wax is melted. Use a paper towel to wipe the remaining melted wax out of the jar. Put it into dishwasher to clean and sanitize. Reuse for years to come!
In order to enjoy that crackle light after light there are a couple tips you need to know first! Listen up wood wick lovers!
1. Wick height. It’s super important that your wick is 1/8 inch tall or shorter. The wood wick needs to be close to the wax, so the wick can’t be too tall.
2. Trim your wick! While this important for every candle it’s necessary on wood wicks. You HAVE to trim your wick before re-lighting them each time! If you don’t trim your wick, they will light up and burn out shortly after. If you trim your wick and this still happens, stay calm and trim a little bit more off and relight. Keep doing this until it stays lit.
3. Lighting it up. When you light your wood wick, you need to put the flame where the wick and the wax meet. If you light from the top tip of the wick, it will burn out. It needs the fuel from the melted wax to keep the wick burning.
This candle represents everything that is Christmas, and the scent is so good! I cannot wait to light this one and fill my whole home with the magic of the season.
