Why Does My Candle Look Wet?

Why Does My Candle Look Wet?

The wet spots that you see are not really wet spots, what you are seeing are the spots within the jar where shrinkage and air bubbles occurred as the wax was cooling.

Part of the wax pulls away from the glassware and sticks to the container resulting in the "wetspot" look. This is common in all candles, yes, including the expensive ones! It does not affect the burnability of your candle. Go ahead and light your candle and enjoy the aroma.

Is That Sweat On My Candle?

We use soy wax to make our candles, Soy is natural however it is very sensitive. When soy is exposed to fluctuating changes in temperatures, our candles are made in and shipped from California, the natural soy oils can cause the essential oil to separate from the wax causing sweating in the candle.

This type of sweating does not affect the quality of the candle, its burn, or scent. If this occurs, simply dab any excess oil off with a tissue, light your candle and enjoy the aroma!
