Frequently Asked Questions

LOHN Candles

We use a blend of essential oils, natural fragrances, and clean synthetic fragrances in our core collections (Amber Road, Tea Road & Spice Road). The use of these ingredients allow us to create a more complex scent with a stronger scent throw than a 100% natural scent.  Our Forage Collection is made with 100% essential oils. Every LOHN candle is paraben free, phthalate free and preservative free.

We hand blend our scents and all of the ingredients are regulated to very high standards by the International Fragrance Association (IFRA). We’ve worked in the cosmetics industry for years and we are passionate about sharing our knowledge.

T, M, B, stands for top notes, middle notes and base/bottom notes. Perfume notes (ingredients that make up a scent) are classified into top, middle and base notes, according to their relative volatility, their rate of evaporation. Top notes are the most volatile, middle notes diffuse more slowly, and base notes are the most lasting.

As your candle burns, or as your perfume oil wears on your skin, you can smell the different notes in the scent. Top notes first and base notes last.

LOHN candles are made with clean scents, an organic coconut and soy wax blend, a non-toxic cotton core wick and recyclable packaging. Every candle is vegan, paraben free, phthalate free, cruelty free & non-toxic. 

Our coconut and soy wax blend is phenomenal, trust us, we’ve tested all the waxes. The 7.5 oz candles burn for 50 hours and the 3 oz candles burn for 20 hours. 

The best way to make your candles last is to blow them out only after the wax melts to the glass edge, burn them for no more than 3 hours at a time, keep the wick centered and wax free of debris, trim the wick to ¼” before each lighting.

Make sure to burn your candle on a stable, heat-safe surface away from drafts and flammable materials. When it's burning, keep your candle in sight, away from children and pets. During use, the glass may become warm so allow it to cool before handling it. 

Of course you can! We highly encourage this. We designed our glasses so that you’ll want to reuse them for whatever you’d like. And they are food-grade too! It’s really easy to reuse your candle glass, wipe out the wax, use a spoon to pry out the wick base and then wash it out with soap and water. Ta da! You’ve got a yourself a cocktail glass, a toothbrush holder, or a vase for your flowers or plants.
