Half-Cut Candles Logo

Half-cut Candles was born out of a desire to do something different in this throw away world. So many celebrations & memories are made over a glass of wine or fizz. They wanted a way to capture those times, rather than throw them away.

After a fun evening with friends, wine bottles were at their disposal and they were reluctant to throw them away. The combination of a desire to be creative, a 70’s craft magazine and a want to find an interesting way to savour the moment of a special evening led to the first half-cut candle.

They are always experimenting with fragrances – meeting customers and introducing them to their candles has taught them that scent is a very personal thing. Smells can evoke memories in us all and the right scent combination can bring back special memories and put a smile on your face.

They have simple and noble ideals.

  • They take a bottle that once celebrated a moment in time.
  • Re-purpose it to create a uniquely designed gift
  • Add a carefully designed fragrance
  • So their customers can enjoy a new moment in time to create new memories

They work with 100% Soy wax and high quality fragrance oils.

  • Soy wax is created with natural soybean oil.
  • Composed of non-petroleum renewable resources.
  • Promoting the growth and care of our environment.
  • Biodegradable and free from Pesticides and Herbicides.
  • 100% Vegetable guaranteed.

FIRST BURN

When burning your soy candle for the first time, it's important to allow the candle to burn for 2.5 to 3 hours. Soy wax has a “memory” and allowing your candle to create its initial memory burn will help create a full melt pool of wax, this increases the scent throw.

WICK TIPS

To prevent your soy candle from producing black soot, trim your wick to 1/4” before lighting. If the wick has a large flame, or starts to flicker, extinguish and let cool, re-trim wick and re-light. 

The natural fiber wicks are self-trimming and are made to curl slightly when burning, which help the candle produce lower soot. At times a carbon mushroom may appear at the top of the wick, this is unburned carbon that has collected. If this happens to your candle, extinguish it, let cool and trim the wick.
