Intensely Scented Gel Candles



Frequently Asked Questions


What are gel candles?

Gel candles are attractive, decorative candles which burn longer, cleaner, and brighter than traditional wax candles. The Gel consists of 95% mineral oil, and 5% polymer resin (gelling agent) and is translucent with a solid jelly-like appearance. Gel candles from Wicked Scentual Candles are available in a wide variety of colors and fragrances.

How do gel candles compare to wax candles?

Since gel melts at a higher temperature than wax does, they burn longer than traditional wax candles. There is no smoke or soot, so it is a much cleaner burn. And because gel candles are translucent, they burn about 40% brighter.

How should I burn my gel candle?

Gel candles should not be burned for more than 4 hours at a time. They should be allowed to cool completely before being relit. All candles should only be burned on a flat, heat resistant surface, and should never be moved or handled while hot or burning. Keep clear of flammable items, children, and pets, and NEVER leave a burning candle unattended.

When should I trim the wick on my gel candle?

Although Wicked Scentual Candles does use "self-trimming" wicks, it may be necessary at times to trim your wick, should mushrooming occur. Only trim your wick when the gel is completely cooled. Wicks should be trimmed to about a ¼” before relighting your candle.

Does Wicked Scentual Candles use wicks that contain lead?

No. Neither our wicks nor gel contain any lead.
