Candle Terms 101

May 04, 2016 Jamie Graves

Check out some pretty neat terms related to candles that you may have never heard of! 

Melt Point - The temperature at which melting wax gets hot enough to turn from a solid into a liquid.

Melt Pool - This is the liquid layer of wax that forms as the candle burns.

Cold Throw - Term used to describe the strength of fragrance before a candle has been burned for the first time. This evaluation is typically done within 24-48 hours of the candle being made.

Hurricane Candle - An outer shell of wax with a high melt point that may be decorated and is not intended for burning.  There will be an inner candle that can be burned and/or replaced.

Stay tuned for more candle terms to come in the future!
