The Art of Candle Making

Wax

Julie Clarke Candles use 100% pure natural waxes that come from a biodegradable renewable resource.

Because each fragrance contains a unique mix of natural ingredients, Julie Clarke Candles custom blends specific wax formulas designed to complement every candle scent.

After the addition of the fragrance, the wax is hand poured at a temperature of around 45-55°C into pre-warmed containers. When your candle has burned down, our wax cleans out easily with soap and hot water, leaving you with a lovely translucent porcelain lantern to pop a tea light into.

 

 

Fragrance

Each of our fragrances has been carefully crafted using the finest essential oils, providing a unique set of calming aromas for your home. Choose from revitalising citrus, romantic and relaxing florals, sensual woody scents and comforting vanilla. The fragrance is added at a specific wax temperature to avoid burning off the perfume while still allowing the wax to pour smoothly.

The same is true for burning your candle. The candle should be burned for 3-4 hours until there is a full melt pool and then extinguished. The melt pool will still throw out fragrance to the room. Burning for prolonged periods, for example all day, will only result in the unnecessary loss of fragrance top notes.

 

 

 

Wicks and Porcelain Vessel

For your complete peace of mind, each Julie Clarke Candle is made with an unbleached cotton, lead-free wick. Wicks vary in diameter depending on the scent and are carefully cantered into each porcelain vessel. The porcelain vessels are filled to the top with heated wax. Before the wax has completely cooled, the wicks are straightened by hand one by one. The wicks are then trimmed to a length of 4 millimeters and the candles get one last inspection.

All our candles and diffusers are contained in fine porcelain vessels. The translucency of fine porcelain is complimented by the flickering reflections of candle light. All our candles come with silver colour or porcelain lids to keep the candles clean when not in use. A luxurious gift box completes the gift.
