Why does my candle wax sometimes look bumpy after burning?

Since our soy wax candles do not contain additives, the surface wax after your first burn may appear rough, frosted, or slightly lumpy once it hardens. This is quite common and typical of all natural soy wax candles and is purely cosmetic. 

It happens when the rate of cooling is inconsistent and unfortunately, it's difficult to control once the candle has been lit and then extinguished. Sometimes it will dry with the rough, uneven surface and sometimes it will dry smooth as glass.

The good news is, is not a product flaw and will not affect the scent or performance of your candle!
