Frequently asked questions

Why are candles so popular?


Candles are one of the most enjoyable, affordable, and readily accessible luxury items. They infuse the home with color and fragrance, and can help create a special warmth and ambiance to allow for a sense of calm and well-being. So go ahead and pick your favorite AM Candle!




What is the wax made of?


Our wax is a custom blend and is ecologically friendly as possible. The creamy wax is made of a premium coconut soy wax blend.




What is the proper burning method for candles?


We’ve found that the best burn time for our candles is in 3 hour increments. Be sure to trim your wick to 1/4” before each lighting (remove that mushroomed wick). Make sure that the melt pool reaches the edges of the candle before extinguishing - otherwise your candle will not burn evenly the next time you light it. Keep the candle away from children, pets, and any drafts. Drafts tend to make the flame burn elongated, causing abnormal burning. And be careful when you touch the candles while they’re lit - they get hot!




How long will the candles burn for?


AM Candles last for 50-75 hours, depending on size and when burned in 3 hour increments. If you keep your wick trimmed and don’t leave your candle on for 12+ hours a day it can last closer to 55-75+ hours.
