General info about Scented Candles and Rapeseed Candles:

Candles made from rapeseed wax require a bit more care and attention than other candles. Yvelis' candles are handmade and carefully tested to burn as beautifully as possible and smell wonderful.

The wax I use is not genetically modified or tested on animals. The fragrance oils and essential oils I use are carefully selected and of the highest quality, also not tested on animals. The wicks are made of cotton and contain no lead.

Since rapeseed wax is a vegetable wax, it can sometimes develop so-called frosting, uneven surfaces, or discolorations. This does not affect how the candle burns or smells, but is simply the nature of rapeseed wax and cannot be changed without adding various additives, which we want to avoid!

It's the pool of melted wax that spreads the scent, so remember that it can take up to an hour, and sometimes more, before the candle fully releases its fragrance.

In the early life of the candle, some wax may remain on the glass walls, do not remove it, as it will melt down during later burnings. This happens because the candle gets warmer the further down the flame goes, and in order to make a candle that burns as safely as possible, some wax may remain during the candle's first burnings. I have chosen to manufacture the safest candles possible.

Read and follow the care instructions carefully to get the best out of your candle.

General info about stearin Candles and Pillar Candles:

We use olive stearin in our production, which is made from pure olive oil. "Regular" stearin is often made from animal fat and/or palm oil.

Our stearin candles have a crystalline surface where the stearin crystals are clearly visible.

Our stearin candles often form a nice lace or spiderweb as they burn down, if you don't get this it could be due to drafts, temperature differences, or if the wick is too long or short.

Stearin candles can drip, all stearin candles can drip, and so can ours, even though we do what we can to prevent it. If it starts to drip, extinguish the candle, trim the wick, and let it solidify before lighting it again.

Burning stearin candles in a lantern or lantern can cause the candle to burn poorly and/or drip, as the airflows become completely different and it can also get too hot. If you still want to use a lantern, try with one as large as possible.

Care Instructions:

- Let the candle burn for about 3 hours at a time, slightly longer for the largest candles and slightly shorter for the smallest ones. If you burn the candle for too short periods at a time, it will burn down in the middle and create a tunnel.

- Do not place the candle on a delicate surface, remember that the glass can get hot, especially when the candle has burned down a bit in the glass, and can then damage the surface. Consider using our beautiful wooden lids as coasters for scented candles, and pillar candles need a candle tray.

- Before lighting your candle, trim the wick if necessary to about 0.7 cm, this is to avoid sooting from the wick and to keep the flame height controlled.

- After extinguishing the candle, center the wick before the wax has cooled if needed.

- Extinguish the candle if the flame becomes too high or soots a lot. Let the candle cool completely, trim the wick, and light it again.

- Spills of rapeseed wax can be removed with warm water and soap or a cleaning agent. Stearin is a bit harder and requires washing at 60 degrees Celsius.

- Keep your candle away from sunlight to prevent color changes, this also applies to white candles that can turn yellow from sunlight. Store your candle dry and the temperature should not exceed 28 degrees Celsius or be below 10 degrees Celsius to prevent deformation and cracking.


Burning candles should always be treated with the utmost respect and caution!

- Never light a candle on or near anything flammable and never leave a lit candle unattended.

- Keep a distance of at least 10 cm between multiple lit candles.

- Keep a lit candle away from pets and children.

- Ensure that the wick remains centered and does not come into contact with the glass to avoid cracking the glass or it becoming very hot!

- Keep the candle away from drafts.

Rapeseed Wax:

The use of Swedish rapeseed wax in candle making is relatively new, and we are pleased to be among the first to offer scented candles made from rapeseed wax.

Rapeseed is a crop extensively grown in Sweden and also in Europe, used to protect the soil and as animal feed. Due to the availability of rapeseed, there is no deforestation, and since our rapeseed wax is produced in Sweden, it has a much lower environmental impact compared to, for example, soy wax which is transported over long distances.

The rapeseed wax Yvelis uses is not genetically modified or tested on animals.

We are proud to use wax made from natural and renewable crops!
