I haven’t come across many people who don’t love a quality candle. I myself am a little obsessed and never feel like I have enough. Candles are an inexpensive way to set the mood as well as a way to help mask odours. The more candles I buy the more I realise that not all candles are created equal with many crafted using inferior (possibly toxic) ingredients. Higher quality candles tend to have better (and more nuanced) scent profiles that are longer lasting than cheaper versions.
Introducing Kush Candles, a brand born in 2015 with a studio located in Colorado (lucky them!). Each hand poured candle within their range is based around the terpene profiles of a certain strain of marijuana. Natural essential oils are also used within each blend, all together creating some pretty amazing aromas. Each and every candle is created in small batches so that Kush Candles can maintain their high levels of perfection.
TIP: You can expect up to 60 hours of burn time. 2 – 4 hours per burn recommended.
The base of each candle is 100% pure soy wax and hemp seed oil. Candles made from soy wax are considered safe for your health, tend to hold scent well and are slow burn. All are 100% free of any pthalates, paraffin, GMOs, pesticides, herbicides or lead (wick). As a harm minimisation advocate this makes me happy!
TIP: This does not mean that the candle smells like a bag of weed (absolutely no THC) and will smell like the dominant terpenes found within a certain strain (plus essential oils used)!
LETS TALK APPLEJACK
As the name implies you can expect the fragrance of a ripe apple and bright fruit notes. Kush Candles then added a little pinch of spices (+ essential oils) including cinnamon, clove, orange and cedarwood. Finally, the Terpenes used include α. Pinene and Myrcene.
I am currently holding the candle as I write this, and I can sense the subtle spiced apple coming through with another scent that I can’t put into words. I may not be able to offer an adequate description, but I can say that it smells truly amazing. Lastly, you should never buy a candle based on looks but this candle is the craziest/coolest shade of pink that I just love!
- Always important to trim your wick before usage. Trim to approximately ¼”.
- Ensure that your candle is on a flat fire-resistant surface with nothing flammable nearby.
- Light wick with lighter/matches and don’t burn for more than 4 hours at a time.
- Ensure the candle is extinguished completely after use. Double check if you need to.
No need to clean a candle but I sometimes wipe down the glass if any soot is present.
