Candles can add a little mood lighting and offer calm at the end of a stressful day. Rarely do they make you laugh as well. Embrace your inner Malicious Woman and express yourself with incredibly fun and snarky labels. Perfect when you need a gift for a hostess, birthday, or friend needing a sarcastic little pick me up. You simply can't go wrong!
Garden Hoe - Infused with Dirty Thoughts
Scent: Citrus & Sage - The perfect kitchen candle. The clean scent has top notes of mandarin, tangerine, ruby red grapefruit, and lemon rinds and bottom notes of fresh white sage leaves. My bestie calls this "Freshly Showered Man". Take that as you want.

Tips for the best burning candle experience:
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.
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 is made from recycled kraft paper.
