Candle care tips

Soy wax has a โ€œmemory.โ€ This means when a soy candle is burned and then extinguished, the next time it burns, the candle will only melt as far across as it did the last burn. So always burn your candle until the wax melts evenly across the top of the jar, to prevent โ€œtunneling.โ€
Before lighting your candle, make sure to trim the wick to ยผ inch. This ensures a clean and lasting burn. A flame that is too high can burn off the scent too fast.

Lit candles are hot (obviously) : never touch a candle jar while it is lit and allow sufficient time for a candle to cool off before you handle it.

Keep your candles in sight while burning and away from anything flammable. Never leave children unattended near an open flame.

KALAMIRA Candlesโ€™ labels are removable and do not leave any glue stains for a clean reusable jar ๐Ÿ™‚

About our soy candles

Soy wax is a clean burning and renewable resource unlike paraffin (which is derived from petroleum).

It is natural, non-toxic and cleans up easily with soap and warm water.

It also burns slower than paraffin wax resulting in a longer burning candle.

Each 10 oz (283 g) soy candle has an approximate burn time of 55-60 hours

We only use natural ingredients that are made in Canada or the U.S :

- all-natural soy wax

- phtalate free and paraben free fragrance oils

- cotton wicks

- reusable jars with removable labels, leaving no glue stains.

Oh, and each candle is hand-poured in Montreal, QC, Canada, where I'm from ๐Ÿ™‚

Each candle is 10 oz (283g) Height : 3.75 in (9.5 cm) Diameter : 3.5 in (8.9 cm)

Burn time : when using the candle in three hour increments, it will burn for 55-60 hours approximately

You'd like to use your own hashtag on our black label for a personalized soy candle? We got you ๐Ÿ™‚ (with no additional fee)

2- Add to cart

3- At the checkout, on the additional message box, let us know which hashtag you'd like to have (we advise a maximum of 20 characters for a better readability)

4- We're taking care of the rest ๐Ÿ™‚

Our candles smell great and each jar lasts 50 to 60 hours. And what our customers like the most about them is the trendy hashtags we use on our labels ๐Ÿ™‚ (Instagram fans can relate) #sundayfunday, anyone ?

Plus, we know candle enthusiasts love to collect scented candles from many brands, so there's definitely no such thing as having too many candles, right ? ๐Ÿ™‚

It's my childhood nickname, and how my parents (still) call me. Mira is actually a shortened version of my middle name, and ''Kala'' is often used affectionately to mean ''miss'' in Malagasy, usually by older people towards younger ones. So basically it means ''Miss Mira'':)
