Sheenashona Candles

At Sheenashona we design & manufacture our own candle ranges from the finest quality Eco-friendly soya wax. We use cotton wicks and hand blend in small batches with a curated selection of signature fragrances along with mica dyes to add colour and flare.

Candle waxes can be broken down into two main categories, vegetable (or natural) waxes such soya and rapeseed or mineral (or paraffin) waxes which are a soft colourless solid derived from petroleum, coal or shale oil.

Vegetable wax is made by hydrogenating vegetable oil such as soya bean and rapeseed oil, making it perfect to create candles. Hydrogenation is a process where the oil which was once a liquid at room temperature is processed to make them solid at room temperature, changing it into a wax. By changing the oils melt point, it allows the wax to melt at the ideal temperature. Vegetable waxes are renewable and thus Eco-friendly.

Candle Care  

How To Burn Your Candle To Achieve The Best Results

  • Light your candle in a well-ventilated room and burn candles away from walls and overhanging surfaces, draughts other heat sources and flammable materials. 
  • Allow the candle to burn until it reaches the edges of the container.
  • Keep the wick trimmed to between a 1/4 to an 1/8th of an inch before each use.
  • Burn regular-sized candles for a maximum of two hours at a time. Burning for less time can cause the candle to 'tunnel', which leaves a build-up of wax around the vessel's sides. Burning for longer periods (over four hours) can cause the wick to move or slant.
  • Make sure you stop burning your candle when you have 10 mm of unmelted wax in bottom of the candle to avoid excessive heat. 

Always Remember

  • Candle containers will become hot and should never be placed on any unprotected or polished surfaces.
  • Extinguish the flame and allow the candle too cool before handling or moving.
  • You should never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Make sure you burn candles out of reach of children and pets. Never leave fragments of wick or matches in the candle after lighting.
  • Never allow the flame to touch the side of any container and cease burning if it does.
  • Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers repeatedly or the flame becomes too high.
  • Never use if there is damage to the container.
  • Storing candles for too long can affect the scent, so use your candle in a reasonable time to make the most of its beautiful fragrance.
