Malicious Women Co. handcrafted soy candles are natural and burn cleaner than traditional paraffin candles. The scented, creamy soy wax is hand-poured into a vintage apothecary-style recyclable jar. After approximately 45 hours of burn time or when the candle wax burns down to 1/4" from the bottom of the jar, simply melt the remaining soy wax in very hot water and wipe clean. Visit our FAQ page to learn all the tips & tricks to ensure you get ALL 45 hours of burn time from your new candle.

Great News - we never include prices on our packing slips

Before the first light, make sure you have 3-4 hours available for the candle to burn while attended. We know it is exciting to want to light your candle right away, but this is the most important step! We suggest you choose an evening that doesn’t require interruption or on a weekend while watching the game or reading a book. It is supposed to be a relaxing experience anyway.​ Keep your wick trimmed to 1/4”. Occasionally, mushrooming may occur. This is okay and simply means that there is a build-up of carbon or a draft. After the candle is extinguished, allow wick to harden and carefully trim to 1/4”. Do not allow wick trimming to fall into wax, as this can create a fire hazard. It’s just not good candle care. Soy candle wax has what’s called a memory. That means that when you burn a soy candle and then extinguish it, the next time you burn it, the soy candle wax will melt across as far as it did the first time.​ This is why it is so important to allow soy candles to burn all the way across to the edge of the container the first time you burn it before putting it out. This ensures that your soy candle does not “tunnel” as it burns, leaving wax along the sides of the container. A good rule of thumb is to burn your candle 1 hour for every inch wide that the candle is. So if you have a 3 inch wide soy candle, you may need to burn it for at least 3 hours for a good melt pool.

I get this question all the time and it is an important one. We use a premium blend of Grade A synthetic and natural fragrances in all our candles, as they 1) allow me to create my own signature scents; 2)allow us to offer MWCC candles at an affordable price point of $20. Our oils are vegan and cruelty-free. Further, I fly to my scent suppliers every year to blend my own scents with the help of their lab technicians. It is my most favorite trip of the year! You will not find any other scents that smell like mine in another candle line.

Our products were designed to empower - not overpower - your day. Because of this, their scent throw will be more intimate than other products on the market that are blended with paraffin or other additives and stabilizers. We don't use any of that shit in our candles! Our candles are designed to scent a medium sized room with pure maliciousness.

When you've reached the sad end of your Malicious Women candle, you can reuse the jar! Simply remove the wick, rinse the jar in hot water, and wipe clean. Try to avoid getting the label wet or rubbing the label when it is wet, as the label may become damaged.

You may also refill your jar in any scent with one of our refill kits available... CLICK HERE FOR REFILL KIT.

New 9 oz: Burn Time Approximately 40-50 Hours *Burn times vary depending on the environment your candle is placed in. Drafts, temperature and trimming of your wick can affect the life of your candle.
