This soy candle smells like:

Toasted marshmallow, crackling campfire, and smoke infused vanilla.

 

You will be instantly transported to family nights around the campfire , making s’mores.

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

9 ounce Black/White/Clear Tumbler:  55-hour burn life, double wicked, with a metal lid.  

2 ounce Gold Tin: 12-hour burn life.  A good Travel companion as well.

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. 

What's in Our Candles?

We are delighted that you are here AND that you care about what products you bring into your home.

In order for us to make quality products free from harmful materials, we did countless hours of research.  After months of testing we chose eco-friendly, domestically grown, soy to be our wax.  And our wax is all-natural and non-GMO.

Next we add in the type of wick that promotes a clean even burn. 

This part of the process takes a VERY long time.  Because when you are choosing a wick for a vessel, it has to be just the right strength to provide a perfect melt pool (the melted wax reaches all sides of the vessel), and it has to get the wax hot enough to throw the scent (or hot throw) out into the room.

We choose cotton wicks.  We highly recommend trimming your wicks to 1/4 inch before each burn.  This allows for that nice even burn that we are looking for so that you have zero wax waste.  

Next is the fun part adding scent.  We really wanted to find a manufacture that provides the finest fragrance oils that are free from harmful chemicals.  Our candles are:

1.  Phthalates Free

2.  Nitro Musk Free

Our Unboxing is an Experience

Unboxing a Bella Vida soy candle

The overwhelming feedback that we get about our candles is incredible. 

But the coolest part is how much you love our packaging.  

Bella Vida soy candle

When we first began Bella Vida Candles, I was sitting on the floor in the loft, surrounded by kraft boxes, glue sticks, and paper.Hand stamped soy candle packaging  

After many configurations we came up with the design that shows up at your door step.  

Handmade soy candle tag

Love at First Glimpse!

Immediately you know this was made to make you feel special.  You have the cream cord wrapped tightly around the box.  And it's adorned with the metal lotus flower charm. 

In the center you have a small wooded tag that is embossed with "Hand Made".  That is laid on top of a colored hand-torn paper, and just below that we have hand-stamped our logo.

And then when you open your candle:

You're greeted with candle care instructions, wild flower seeds to encourage you to upcycle your vessel after the flame has gone out.  And a jar of stick matches.

The best part, our kids prepare each and every jar.

Candle Care

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

Your first burn:

  • For the first burn we recommend allowing the jar candle to burn for 3 hours.  This allows for a proper melt pool to form.

Subsequent burns:

  • Trim the wick so that it is 1/4" long.
  • Light the wick.
  • Make sure that the wick remains centered as it burns.  

General Candle Care Guidelines:

  • Never leave a candle burning unattended.
  • Always burn your candle on a fire resistant surface, like a coaster or the lid.
  • 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 decor (curtains) and flammable material.
  • Never burn a candle for more than 2-3 hours at a time (with the exception of the first burn).
  • Extinguish the candle when there is 1/2 inch of wax left in the vessel.  Clean out the vessel and repurpose.

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

Whether you're getting a candle as a gift for yourself or someone you love, you can be assured they will feel the joy and happiness that we put into making the product the moment their nose sniffs the scent.
