WHO WE ARE
Craft Beer Logistics By Day / Craft Candle Maker By Night
Hi my name is Mel - I help run a Craft Beer Logistics business in Auckland with my husband Phil - Beertique has got a great small team working with us distributing to all corners of the North and South Islands and includes an amazingly diverse customer base. For the last 7 years working hard establishing the business we are really proud to be independently family owned and operated.
Although I love BEER ... Wanting to do something creative as a distraction from day to day running of a beer business I started Wick x Wax. Phil named it as he did Beertique and so it has begun!
An easy solution to bring your home to life in minutes is to light a candle and in no time your home will be smelling like freshly picked flowers, home baking or recently laundered linen.
Wick x Wax is home to a beautiful range of 100% natural soy candles.
Hand crafted in small batches and infused with the most deliciously scented essential oils, our range is presented in beautiful jars, clean and classic, our products pay homage to a life inspired by nature, gratitude and mindfulness! Delicate hints of natural herbs, spices and flowers our beautiful fragrances are rich and warm in aroma.
CANDLE CARE AND SAFETY
Did you know that soy candles have a memory?
The first time you burn your candle allow enough time (ideally 2-4 hours) so that your candle can burn all the way to the edges of the jar. This prevents the candle tunnelling down the middle leaving unmelted wax to the edge of the jar. If you don’t have that time, save the candle for when you do!
The first time you light your candle, DON'T trim the wick, leave it as is. Every time thereafter, trim the wick before you light the candle, around half a centimetre should be enough. This creates a nice clean burn and a steady flame.
Position your candle on a flat/heat resistant surface away from kids and pets.
For maximum fragrance or scent throw, keep doors and windows closed.
Stop using your candle when there is about 1cm of wax left, tempting as it may be to get more deliciousness from your candle, there is a risk that the candle will run dry and the flame will the burn glass, which could cause it to crack!
Natural scent diminishes over time, which is why we always produce our candles in small batches to sell quickly and then encourage you to use them within 6 months. To enhance this length of time, store your candles in a dark, cool, dry place.
Never leave a candle unattended,
draughts or wind can decrease burn time and scent throw.
Here’s the best bit! When your candle has finished, allow the wax to cool slightly and clean out the jar. Next, think of all the amazing ways to recycle your jar!
