BITG Soy Candles

Months were spent testing and devising a formula to ensure a clean burn. When pouring candles, I kept with the aim of using wax that is natural, from renewable sources. Natural soy wax burns with zero petro soot that are harmful to health.

Made with:
Wax - 100% natural soy
Fragrance Oil - paraben, phthalate & animal cruelty-free
Cotton wick (50g candles) - lead & zinc free

- prior to burning -

trim the wick.

5mm is the ideal length to obtain a clean and even burn, helping your candle to last longer. If not trimmed, the wick may flare (too big), cause smoking and be a potential fire hazard. I recommend you to use a wick trimmer or a pair of scissors after every burn.

keep it clean.

Ensure that the candle is free of wick trimmings and debris. Use a pair of tweezers to remove any unwanted speck on your candle.

be safe.

Place your candle on a stable and heat-resistant surface to avoid any possible heat damage. Keep away from children, pets, draughts and flammable items.

If burning with another candle, ensure that there is at least 10cm of space between each candle. 

burning environment.

Light your candle in a space away from drafts, vents or air currents to avoid uneven burning (which eventually leads to tunneling) and sooting. 

- when burning -

never leave unattended.

If you’re leaving the room or going to bed, ensure that all candles are extinguished first. Accidents can and do happen and you can avoid them by being present and awake.

do not touch.

Molten wax is hot, hence do not attempt to move the candle or touch the surface of the jar when lit. 

burn time.

The ideal burning time for BITG's candles is 2-3 hours each time (with a full melt pool), *especially for the first burn!*

This gives your candle ample time to reach a full melt pool and maximum scent throw. Any duration shorter may cause the candle to tunnel (uneven burning).

Do not burn for longer than 4 hours continuously. Excessive burning duration may cause the candle to get too hot, producing soot.

flame power.

If you notice the flame getting too big or flickering repeatedly, extinguish it immediately. Allow the candle to cool, trim the wick, check for any drafts before relighting.

- extinguishing -

put it out.

!Ensure that the melt pool of the wax has reached the edge of the candle to prevent tunneling! 

Using a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle is the safest way to prevent hot wax from splattering. Do not use water! 


Variables such as temperature and light can affect the quality of your candles over time.
Keep them in a cool place away from direct sunlight.
Try to utilize candles within 12 months of purchase.

retire your candle.

For safety measures, stop burning when there is 1.5cm of wax left. Burning the candle all the way down could overheat the glass jar, creating a potential hazard.


Repurpose your candle jars once you’re done with them!

Simply pour boiling water into the jar and leave it to cool for about a day. The remaining wax should harden on the top surface. Scoop the wax and dispose into a trash bin. Wash the jar with soap and leave to dry.
