Dimensions: Since every dough bowl is different this is an approximation: 40" x 6" x 2".

Burn Life: Approximately 25-35 hours depending on wick type and the number of wicks.

Number of Wicks: Varies depending on bowl dimensions and if you choose wooden or braided cotton, 11-15 wicks per bowl.

Holds approximately 58 ounces of soy wax.

You can reuse the bowl for home decor or order a refill kit (coming very soon) and enjoy it all over again.

How Are Dough Bowl Candles Made?

First, we apply a water-based (toxin-free) fire retardant.  Then we secure the wicks to the bowl using a high-temperature hot glue.

Every Candle Is Made with Top-of-The-Line Ingredients:

100% soy wax (from domestically grown soybeans), superior fragrance oils (phthalate and nitro musk free), and crackling wooden or braided cotton wicks.

What's The Difference Between Wooden and Cotton Wicks?

There are two main differences between wooden and braided cotton wicks.

  1. Wooden wicks crackle as they burn which adds another layer of coziness to your home.
  2. Braided cotton wicks have a narrower flame which melts the wax slower and allows your candle to have a slightly longer burn life.

8 ounce Amber Glass Vessel: 45-hour burn life, gold lid, and most popular jar.

The biggest thing that I cannot stress enough is that you must trim your wick before every burn.


Here's why:

  • You have a controlled burn and not a wild flame. 
  • When the flame is too big or too chaotic you will get black soot.
  • Your candle will not burn evenly.
  • You will distort the fragrance.
  • And MOST importantly you risk getting the glass on the vessel too hot and that can break or crack the jar.  Now you have a big risk of fire and certainly a mess.
  • Last but not least, you waste so much of the burn life when you burn it too hot.  

Your wick should never be more than 1/4 inch in length.

The second thing I want to make sure you know in terms of burning is when to stop burning.  You don't want to let all the wax burn completely out.

Why?  Because again once you have reached the bottom of the jar, you have a layer of glass between your counter top and flame, and you risk the wax getting too hot and breaking the jar or even burning the counter top.

We recommend when you can see the bottom of the jar because the wax is liquid, stop burning.  This should be about a 1/2 of an inch from the bottom.

Also it's a great idea to burn your candle on a heat resistant surface like the candle lid.

We are not trying to discourage you from using the product fully, we just want to make sure we keep you and your household safe.  

Now on to the Candle Care instructions that are included in every purchase:

Yes, there is a way to care for your candles in order to get the most out of your purchase.

Your first burn:

  • Light the wick and allow to burn 3-4 hours. (This allows the proper melt pool to form.)

 Subsequent Burns:

  • Trim the wick so that it is ¼” long.
  • Light the wick.
  • Make sure the wick remains centered as it burns.

 General Guidelines:

  • Never leave a candle burning unattended.
  • If the wick creeps to one side, blow out the candle and re-center the wick with a tweezers. Allow to completely cool before relighting.
  • Keep lit candles away from any décor (curtains) and flammable material.
  • Never burn a candle for more than 2-3 hours at a time (with the exception of the first light).
  • Extinguish the candle and upcyle your vessel when 1/2 inch of wax remains.
  • Always burn on a heat resistant surface, like the lid of the candle.

If you follow this care guide you will be able to enjoy your candle longer, and save yourself some money.
