Citrus Botanica Scented Candle by Stellar Apotheca
Citrus Botanica is one of our bestsellers. Crisp and bright bergamot blends with a sparkling and bittersweet yuzu to create the beginnings of an uplifting aroma. These citrus notes are rounded out by the fresh, slightly sweet and softly floral notes of lily of the valley, giving this candle an overall feeling of lightness and positivity.

A Note on Candle Care
The first time you burn your candle, allow the wax to melt to the edges of the container (typically 2-3 hours). This helps prevent "tunneling" - where the candle burns straight down the middle, leaving extra wax along the sides. Keep your burn time to a maximum of four hours. Doing so will help prevent the wick from "mushrooming" - which can cause the flame to get too large, your candle to smoke, and soot to be released into the air. Before each burn, trim your wick to 1/4". This will ensure a smaller, safer flame with less smoke and soot.
