About our candles

At Lorraine’s, we care about the appearance and performance of our candles. We are dedicated to choosing materials that are good for you and our environment.

  • Premium soy wax
  • Natural cotton wax
  • Clean fragrance oils

FAQs About Our Candles

  • Our candles will burn for a range of 40-60 hours depending on size.

    No candle should be burned for more than 4 hours.  After 4 hours, the candle needs a 2 hour resting period before it is lit again.  This allows the wax pool to cool and not get too deep so that the heat shatters the glass.

  • Wicks should be trimmed to ¼’ – ½” between burns. A properly cut wick can be achieved by a horizontal cut with a wick trimmer.

  • Wax is the fuel in a candle. Wax is also the carrier for the fragrance oil. All candle wax used at Lorraine’s Candles is SOY WAX. Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans.

    Wax made from soy’s greatest advantage is that it is completely renewable. While the global reserves of oil shrink and paraffin prices increase, the only limit to the soy supply is how much we choose to grow.

    In addition to sustainability, a well-made soy candle will burn cleanly and slowly for on average 40 – 60 hours (8 oz – 100z candle), much to the delight of our customers.

    The performance and beauty of soy candles speak for themselves, but soy wax candles are also eco-friendly, renewable, American grown, sustainable, carbon-neutral, and many other sustainable benefits.

  • Yes! All fragrances at Lorraine’s Candles are “Clean Scents”, meaning they are free from carcinogens, toxins, and other potentially harmful chemicals or ingredients. All of our fragrance oils are extensively tested and rated for performance in soy wax.

    Fragrance oils are a combination of natural essential oils and synthetic aroma chemicals.

    Essential oils are pure liquids containing aroma compounds that are removed from the seeds, flowers, leaves, roots, and stems or bark of plants through methods such as distillation, expression or extraction.

    Synthetic aroma chemicals which come in powder or liquid form are used when essential oils are not available (like chocolate cake).

    Lorraine’s Candles is committed to sourcing the safest, highest quality, most thoroughly tested fragrance line in the industry.

  • The wick plays a critical role. The purpose of a wick is to deliver the fuel (“wax”) to the flame.

    All wicks at Lorraine’s Candles are the same size and style, no matter the fragrance selection. We have carefully selected the type of wick to ensure superior burn and fragrance performance with our wax type and fragrance selections.

    The wick is a flat braided cotton wick with paper threads woven into the cotton.

    The reinforced construction of the wick is designed to ensure a consistent burn with higher fragrance loads, especially with softer, more viscous natural waxes, like soy.

    The superior rigidity of this type of wick allows the wick to stand up straighter for easier pours and keeps the wick upright in a deep melt pool..

  • You sure can! Bring your clean, empty Lorraine's vessel into the shop and you can pour into it again for $5 off the price. We can help remove the wick. The vessel must be free of any cracking or damage to ensure a safe burn.
