Customized Candles!

Melanie was so great to work with. Customization was so easy! Thank you!

Favorite Scent

Bought one a while back and had to replace it. Bought nine, so I would always have them, for the Man Cave!

This & That

The smell of this candle has a lot of different scents but is not over powering. I love it!

Beautiful scent

It's fruity and flowery in a more subtle way, with the vanilla making it super cozy for cold days. Definitely one of my favorites!

Q: Is there a "right" way to burn my candle?

A: Yes. Here’s how to get the most out of your candles:

  1. Choose a good quality candle.  
    A well-crafted candle is made using high-quality wax, as well as the appropriate wick for that particular candle.  A good candle will have a full layer of melted wax spanning the surface, and the sides of the vessel should be clean & soot-free.   
  2. Trim the wick.
    Trim your wick to 1/4" prior to the initial burn, and keep it trimmed throughout the life of the candle.  If you light the wick and you see any smoke at all, extinguish the flame and trim the wick.  Wicks can be trimmed with one of our sleek Wick Trimmers, but you can also use standard scissors to keep your wicks in check.  
  3. Take your time.  
    Your candle’s initial burn is incredibly important, and it lays the groundwork for the life of that candle.  
    Kalamazoo Candle recommends an initial burn of 4 hours, or until a full melt pool has formed across the surface of the candle.  Subsequent burns should also last until the entire surface of the candle is melted (1-2 hours for Kalamazoo Candles).  
  4. Location, location, location.
    First and foremost: place your candle in a safe spot, away from windy areas and items that may catch fire, Keep candles out of reach of children and pets, and never leave an open flame unattended.  Lastly, avoid burning your candle near a window during the cold months.  Cold temperatures can offset all your hard work and leave your candle with a pretty wicked tunnel.
