FAQ

Why is coconut better?

Coconut wax is obtained from a sustainable crop that is eco-friendly to harvest and is not associated with any deforestation. It is produced from cold-pressed coconut meat leaving it free from all toxins. Coconut wax also burns cooler making your candle last longer. Remedium candles are made from completely natural ingredients resulting in a wax that burns cleaner than others in the market.

We do we use wood wicks?

Our wooden wicks are manufactured in the USA, naturally processed and sourced from sustainable forests. Besides looking unique, they provide a soft crackling sound when burning to create an alluringly warm ambience.  Unlike cotton wicks, wooden wicks emit no harmful toxins, have little to no carbon build-up, debris or sooting.

Our use of essential oils not only add to our fragrances but also the ability to enhance mood and wellbeing.

Are your cork lids eco-friendly?

Cork stoppers are made from the bark of a cork oak tree, not the tree itself. Bark is harvested from the tree every 9-12 years. Completely renewable and sustainable, harvesting bark does not harm the tree. Each time cork is harvested; cork bark regenerates itself (and in doing so absorbs CO2). In fact, cork trees live between 100 and 300 years.

How to care for your candle.

With every candle the first burn is the most important and sets the stage for how your candle will burn for the remainder of its life. To achieve an optimal burn and candle life, keep your candle lit for long enough so that the wax melts to the edge of the jar on every burn, especially the first! This is to avoid burning a tunnel down the middle of the candle and leaving wax around the edges of jar, which can create problems such as the wax drowning the wick and the life of the candle being reduced.

Our wooden wicks are self-trimming so they rarely need to be trimmed in between lightings unless the wick is too long and the candle is producing smoke or soot. Your candle should not be burned for any longer than 4 hours at a time to avoid the candle from burning too hot. Keep candle away from foreign materials and burn on an even, heat resistant surface, and remember to allow your candle to cool completely before handling!
