SAFETY

Candles are en fuego (on Fire) so please pay close attention when lit. Water, soot and other foreign liquids that fall into the wax pool can cause combustion and other problems. We suggest trimming the wick whenever you see a mushroom-shape beginning to form. A cloth or tissue is the perfect tool to pull off the excess (make sure it has cooled off). In addition to making your candle safer, this will help the flame to remain smaller and therefore your candle will last longer! This also helps prevent unsafe combustion and pollution.

WAX DISCOLORATION


Sometimes candle (wax) will discolor over time. This may be due to exposure to light or a reaction between the naturally occurring materials in the wax with the milagro charm. When heat (or cold) is added these materials may patina, however the performance of the candle will not be affected.  

LEAD-TIME

Each item we produce is made by hand and requires several steps of production. For this reason, we ask for your patience and to allow for 3-5 business days prior to shipping. Custom candles may take between 7-10 business days to ship.

REPURPOSE

Our new venture into ceramics allows for the vessels to be reused for glassware, etc. If you plan to repurpose your containers, you may hand-wash the vessel with soap & water...if wax remains we recommend letting the piece dry, then place in the freezer overnight.
