FAQ:

Why Soy? 

Soy wax is a byproduct of the soy bean. It is a renewable and sustainable wax that burns clean and has a longer burn time than other waxes such as paraffin (paraffin wax is a petroleum product). All soy wax that Bridge Nine uses is sourced from American farmers. 

What type of wick do you use? 

We use an 100% cotton wick to ensure a clean and consistent burn. 

What type of scent do you use?

To scent our candles we use a mixture of high grade fragrance and essential oils. Our fragrance oils are phthalate free and formaldehyde free. 

What is the cloudy appearance on my candle?

Are you seeing a cloudy appearance on your candles? Good news! That means you have an all natural soy wax candle! Soy wax goes through a natural crystallization process called "frosting," which creates a cloudy appearance on the candle over time. This process occurs more rapidly in extreme heat or cold. If you receive a candle that has "frosted," don't worry, it will not affect the way your candle will burn or throw scent. Below is an example of what a "frosted" candle looks like:

CANDLE MAINTENANCE AND SAFETY

The following tips and precautions will sustain a happy and safe candle experience: Please allow your Bridge Nine Candle Co candle to burn for approximately 2 hours, or until the wax reaches the edges of the container, the first time you burn it. This will give your candle a good ‘memory’ so that it burns evenly for the remainder of its lifespan.Keep your wick trimmed to 1⁄4” to help prevent smoking and soot build-up. Keep your candle out of direct sunlight. Soy wax has a low melting point and candles will melt in extreme heat and direct sun.

Do not leave a burning candle unattended.

Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
