With each Classic Size, you'll receive 15 cotton wicks, which should be more than sufficient. It's important to note that the provided burn times are based on not trimming the wick, and various factors may affect the actual burn time.

2. Post-Burn Care: What to Do When the Wick Reaches the Bottom?

After your candle's wick has burned down, you can effortlessly remove the solidified wax and wick layer. Since it's made from vegan ingredients, both the melted wax and the cotton wick can be responsibly recycled in a biodegradable bin.

To get the most out of your Sand Candles, you can reuse the solidified layer after burning by breaking it apart. Check out this video for reference.

3. How Are Sand Candles Different from Traditional Candles?

Traditional candles are typically come in containers, but with sand candles, you can freely pour them into any container you prefer - allowing you to create a candle in just one minute. How cool is that!

4. What Makes Sand Candles Sustainable?

When you purchase a candle, you no longer receive a container. Did you know that research shows only 8% of candle containers get recycled? This means that 92% of candle containers not only go unrecycled, but also amounts to a significant volume of unused containers.

5. Adding Scent to Unscented Sand Candles: How is it Done?
