All Village Common products are “leaping bunny certified” and never tested on animals by any suppliers or in our own production.
When designing products, Village Common considers the entire life cycle of the products and packaging to reduce waste and encourage reuse. 


When burning your candle for the first time, it is important to allow the candle to burn for at least 3-3.5 hours to insure a full melt pool across the top of the candle. If the first burn only lasts a short while the candle will begin to "tunnel" down the width of the initial burn. "Tunneling" down the center of the container is caused by an improper first burning. By allowing your candle to create its initial full melt pool of wax, the candle will burn perfect 100% of the time and increases the candle's scent throw.
To prevent your soy candle from producing black soot, always trim your wick to 1/4" before lighting your candle - with the exception of the first burn. Always burn your candle on a level, heat resistant surface. If the wick begins to have a large flame, starts flickering constantly, or if the wick becomes larger than 1/4" extinguish the flame and let cool for 1-2 hours, re-trim wick and re-light. Always keep the wick centered.
If for some reason you cannot smell the scent of the candle you are burning, leave the room for a few minutes and let your olfactory sense adjust. The pure 100% essential oil formula is not a potent as many other synthetic, toxic scents found in most other candles. Many times the olfactory becomes accustomed to your surroundings and blocks out scents that are in your immediate area. When you return you should be able to smell the fragrance.
Although Village Common candles are highly fragrant, sometimes the homes we live in have large open spaces that combine many living areas. Some of our fragrances are bolder and will scent an entire home, while others are lighter and have been designed to achieve a soothing ambiance.
