Frequently Asked Questions

Coconut wax is obtained from a sustainable crop that is eco-friendly to harvest and is not associated with any deforestation. It is produced from cold-pressed coconut meat leaving it free from all toxins. Coconut wax also burns cooler making your candle last longer. Joe + Monroe candles are made from completely natural ingredients resulting in a wax that burns cleaner than others in the market.

Each of our fragrances have been carefully created and blended using the finest essential and Phthalate free aromatic oils sourced from around the world. Joe + Monroe candles not only provide exquisite fragrances but also the ability to enhance mood and wellbeing.

Allow the candle to burn for a minimum of 2 hours upon your first burn OR until the surface is fully melted from edge to edge to minimize tunneling. Trim wick in between burn cycles to reduce chances of soot and to preserve candle life. Never burn candle for more than 4 hours at a time and always burn within eyesight.

Note: For safety reasons, there will be a small amount of wax left over once the candle has completed its burn cycle. The metal wick clip used is manufactured to burn out the candle before it reaches the very bottom of the vessel.
