The story of Southern Candles Company & Gifts ~ Candles
Since 1999, Southern Candles Company has grown from making cake type candles to manufacturing and supplying numerous fragrant goods. By improving on already good products Southern Candles Company has filled a niche in the sale of fine fragrant goods, one 'Hand-made & Hand-Poured' candle at a time. We carry In Stock Candles and Special Request Candles.
Southern Candles Company has always used only American-made zinc core wicks in making their hand-made and hand-poured candles.  Although zinc core wicks are more expensive than plain cotton wicks, they are easy-to-light or relight. When using a cotton wick, if the top of the candle liquefies and it is blown out, the wick in many cases will be submerged, and it is necessary to "dig" to relight the candle. The zinc wick is 100% environmentally safe and has no relationship to a lead wick. By using a zinc wick, you will experience a longer, more evenly burning candle.
When burning our Candles, the wicks will often develop a black "fragrance mushroom." This mushroom is caused by the high volume of fragrance oils we use to make our candles. The wick acts like a straw while the candle is burning, pulling the fragrance oil through the wax and releasing the fragrance into the air as it burns. We hope when you see the "fragrance mushroom" on your candles, it will be a reminder of Southern Candles Company's dedication to quality and your enjoyment. When a "fragrance mushroom" is formed, gently blow out the flame, let the candle cool and trim the wick to 1/8"-1/4", then  relight.  Without this simple attention, the "fragrance mushroom" could smoke and cause an oversized flame.
