RETROGRADE is all about going back to find yourself. Be still and dig deep.
Elemi resin, unrefined beeswax, lit matches, and big leaf mahogany. Retrograde is deep and warm. Oakmoss, agarwood, and burnt incense create extra complexity.
Hand poured, flat wooden wick, luxury vegan wax blend, phthalate free fragrance oil. 14 oz = up to 90 hours of burn time. This is a large candle housed in a reusable matte blush vessel.
The flat wooden wick creates a softly crackling flame. Unique and comforting.
This matte blush vessel is begging to be used again and again. After depleting your candle fill the cleaned container with pens, palo santo, make up brushes, or a potted plant.
Tips for getting the most of your candle...
*Burn your new candle at least 3-4 hours the first time you light it. This will allow the entire top layer of wax to liquify and promote a clean burn that doesn't waste wax. This prevents tunneling in your candle. Wax has a memory so start off right! If you experience a high flame or black smoke the first burn, quickly blow out the candle and immediately and carefully trim off the black portion of the wick and relight. Your wick should be much more manageable and clean.
*Do not leave a burning candle unsupervised, near kiddos, or surrounded by flammable objects. I also keep my candles away from the wall. Do not burn over four hours at a time. Safety first!
*Before relighting your candle trim.the.wick. (Every time.) I cannot overstate the importance of this! The correct length is 1/8 of an inch. So short! I snagged a handy wick trimmer for just this purpose. Seriously a crucial item for preventing soot, keeping the candle flame safe, and prolonging candle life. Failing to trim the wick = smelling burning wood vs your luxury candle. Maintain your candle, you deserve it!
