Absolutely! We encourage you to re-cycle. Once you have finished burning your HUTWOODS candle, the glass jar that is left behind can be reused. After the wax is completely removed (simply with warm soapy water), these jars are a unique way to store everyday items including make-up brushes, cotton wool, or as a vase for flowers etc.
My HUTWOODS candle has surface imperfections. Is this normal?
During temperature changes, soy wax will sometimes release excess oil. This often happens after shipping across the country and is known as ‘sweating’. This will not affect the candle, nor usually reappear after the initial burn. To remove the oil, use a paper towel to gently wipe it clean.
HUTWOODS candles are all hand poured and not massed produced. Although every effort is made to ensure consistency, each candle is unique. When using natural soy wax, sometimes you may notice darker patches or wet spots in your container. This is not a fault of the candle – simply a characteristic of natural soy wax where the wax has not 100% adhered to the glass. This does not affect the candle in any way. It’s how you know it’s completely natural soy wax.
Can I really use the seeded paper to grow a herb?
Yes, absolutely! We wanted a creative way for our customers to be able re-cycle and re-use our luxury range of silver, matte black and brass jars. Every one of these candles come with a layer of protective seeded herb paper with 4 different herb options; Basil, Oregano, Parsley and Thyme.
