Candles are awesome – here’s how to use them correctly.

First things first – let’s talk safety.

    •    Never leave a lit candle burning unattended.

    •    Keep burning candles away from children, pets and anything that can catch fire.

    •    To avoid a hazard and to prevent the glass from breaking, always discontinue use and discard your candle when ½” wax remains.

    •    Always use a candle holder or plate specifically designed for candle use.  It should be heat resistant, sturdy and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.

    •    Never burn a candle for more than 2 to 3 hours at a time

    •    Never move or handle a burning candle.  The wax and the container get hot when in use.  Extinguish and allow to fully cool after or in between use.

    •    Place the candle and candle holder on a stable, flat surface.

    •    Trim wicks to ¼” or less before each use.  Extinguish immediately, allow to cool, and trim wick further if black smoke appears. 

    •    Do not burn candles where there is a draft, as it may cause sooting (and uneven burning).

    •    Burn candles in well-ventilated rooms.

    •    Never burn a candle when the wick is not in the center of the candle wax.

    •    Keep the melt pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.

 

Voluspa

Founded in 1999 by Traci and Troy Arntsen, Voluspa has gone from a homegrown labor of love to a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Southern California. Legend has it that the two built the brand from their own ruined pots and kitchen laboratory—even personally walking orders into the first retail stores.

What has grown over the last almost two decades is the result of a remarkable pedigree and relentless innovation. Traci’s cultivated passion for botany and essential oils combined with her fragrance education, allows Voluspa to hand-craft scents using the finest global ingredients.

We’re not all frills, though. Our revolutionary custom wax blend is the result of considerable sourcing, sustainability research, testing and testing again. We stamp each candle with a seal of domestic, sustainable, eco-friendly pride.

A hand-crafted collection of exquisite beauty products, designed to bring cherished inspirations from around the world to you.

TOCCA was born out of friendship, wanderlust and a lot of love. We started as a young group of friends, who loved travel, and the discovery of beautiful people, places & things. Our curiosity for textures & embroideries, scents & gardens led us into the world of artisanal fashion & beauty.

Today, TOCCA, which means ‘touch’ in Italian, stands true to its roots. We create with passion and an appreciation for the time it takes to manifest true beauty. We found our sole purpose … to create beauty that combines an appreciation for vintage femininity with a dose of modern confidence woven in.

Ever grateful for the discerning who have discovered us, we invite you to share in the wonder and beauty that is TOCCA.
