All You Wanted to Know And More

When burning your candle, make sure the melt pool has reached the edge of the container. This is roughly 2 hours.  Please avoid extinguishing the candle before that for your first time use. If the candle is put out too quickly, you could experience tunnelling.

Discontinue use when only 1/2 inch of wax remains.

To prevent fire and serious injury, burn your candle within sight. Keep away from drafts. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Never burn your candle on or near anything that can catch fire.

Do I need to trim the wick?

Yes, the wick should be trimmed to 1/4” before each burn, excluding the first burn as the candle has its wick trimmed by us.

What are otter lake candles made of?

All of our candles are hand poured with care using simple ingredients- all natural soy and coconut wax, 100% cotton or natural wooden wicks, premium fragrance oils and essential oils. That’s it. Soy and coconut wax releases fragrances naturally, it is water soluble, biodegradable and lasts for 25-50% longer than paraffin. It is free from pesticides and herbicides and it is non-toxic to the environment.

How long will my candle burn for?

If burnt as per our recommended instructions and maintained properly, our 9 oz candles will burn for approx. 40-50 hours.  Our 16 oz candles will burn for approx. 70-80 hours. 

How do I clean and reuse the vessel?

Discontinue use when 1/2" of wax remains. Once done, place the candle in the refrigerator overnight as the wax shrinks in cold temperature. Once out of the fridge, gently tap the candle upside down on a paper towel and the wax should slide right out. Allow for the ceramic to reach room temperature, then wash with soapy water and enjoy it as a mug, planter, pen/make up brush holder or anything you like!  We will also be offering a refill program shortly and will update this section at that time.

We can also make your candle unscented. Please contact us at or fill out our online request form on
