Himalayan Candles makes beautifully fragranced candles in reusable original containers. Their candles are poured using artisan techniques with a natural soy wax blend and high quality essential and fragrance oils. They will burn exceptionally well..a clean even burn with minimal sooting, leaving little to no residue and a lingering fragrance. Himalayan Candles are hand made and packaged at their studio in Decatur, Georgia. The Driftwood collection has a metal liner, and the candle will burn evenly to the liner if the following measures are taken: Please ensure you keep all wicks lit at the same time. It is essential to burn the candle for at least 3-4 minutes at the beginning and each time you light it. This will create the widest burn pool. Trim wicks prior to lighting to maintain the cleanest burn and prevent a flame height that is larger than intended.
