Did you know there is a certain way to burn and care for your Ribbonwick Candles? We want to provide a few tips so you can get the most out of these lovely luminaries.

  • When lighting your Ribbonwick Candles, always allow them to burn at least until the wax is melted fully to the sides of the candle container. Depending on the size of your candle, this could take anywhere from two to four hours.
  • If after lighting the candle, the flame is more than an inch high, blow it out and wait for it to cool. Then gently run your finger over the wick to remove any excess wick material or debris. Relight the candle and the flame should burn lower. Repeat this process if needed until the flame is not too high.
  • Always allow your Ribbonwick Candle to cool completely before lighting it again.
  • Be sure to remove any loose wick debris from the inside of your Ribbonwick Candles before you burn them.
  • If your Ribbonwick Candle starts smoking, first check the wick to make sure it is not too long. If the wick is fine, then you probably need to move the candle to a less drafty area of your home.
  • Do not be concerned if you notice air bubbles in your Ribbonwick Candles. The air bubbles form since these candles are made from soy wax, and soy tends to be more sensitive to temperature changes. Even with air bubbles, the candles are fine and should burn normally.
  • Follow basic safety guidelines: never leave the candle unattended while burning; do not burn Ribbonwick Candles in drafty areas of your home; keep pets and small children away from lit candles; make sure your Ribbonwick Candles are always on a heat protected surface; keep all matches and lighters safely stored and out of reach of children.

We hope these tips will make burning your Ribbonwick Candles an even better experience. For more information on Ribbonwick Candles or how to care for them, call 612-584-9405 or Browse our Site.

The Comforts of Camping

“A great many people, and more all the time, live their entire lives without ever once sleeping out under the stars.”
― Alan S. Kesselheim, Let Them Paddle: Coming of Age on the Water

One of the most popular summertime activities is camping. Memories are made sitting around the campfire and making s’mores or hiking through the woods and feeling at one with nature. But if for some reason you can’t get to the great outdoors this summer, bring them to you with these WoodWick Candles from The Woods.

The Frasier Fir WoodWick Candle will remind you of what it is like to camp among the pines. When you light this candle, you will be taken back to the days of sleeping on pine needles and smelling the sharp and fresh scent of pine trees.

If you have ever gone camping during the height of summer, you know how hot it can get outside! Thankfully, you can still enjoy the smell of a hot day in the woods but without having to deal with the heat, humidity and bugs! The Warm Woods WoodWick Candle will help you reminisce about the days you used to spend in the Great Outdoors.

Have you ever been to the Redwoods Forest in California? If so, the Redwood WoodWick Candle might remind you of it. And if you have not visited, you can get a peek of what the forest is like without having to leave your home when you buy one of our Redwood WoodWick Candles.

The last time you went camping, did you take the time to look up at the stars? You can see so many more of them when you are out in the middle of nowhere! The Night Sky Ribbonwick Candle is a great choice for you if you have fond memories of counting the stars while falling asleep.

Happy Mother’s Day from Woodwick Candles

We here at The Woods Gifts love holidays, and one of our favorites is Mother’s Day. And one of our favorite gifts to give are WoodWick Candles. Here are a few fun facts about the holiday that celebrates mothers nationwide:

  • People make more phone calls on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year.
  • Forerunners of Mother’s Day were clubs organized by Ann Reeves Jarvis of West Virginia. They were called “Mother’s Day Work Clubs.” These clubs taught women how to care for their children.
  • In 1870, Julia Ward Howe wrote “Mother’s Day Proclamation.” This document urged mothers to unite to promote world peace, and in 1873, she lobbied for “Mother’s Peace Day” to be celebrated on June 2 of every year.
  • Officially, Mother’s Day was started by Anna Jarvis (the daughter of Ann Reeves Jarvis). Anna Jarvis started Mother’s Day as a way to honor a mother’s sacrifices for her children. The first Mother’s Day celebration was held in May of 1908 at a Methodist church in West Virginia.
  • By 1912, many towns, states and churches were celebrating Mother’s Day annually and in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson officially established Mother’s Day, which would be celebrated on the second Sunday in May.

So how will you be celebrating Mother’s Day this year? We have a few suggestions on what to get Mom! What better way to show you care and appreciate everything she does for you than with one of WoodWick Candle’s beautiful and unique candles?

Parisian Vanilla is a great choice of Ribbonwick Candle because it is a gender neutral scent. Vanilla is a more relaxing scent that makes you feel like you’ve just taken a trip to the spa.
