Are All Candles Made of soy-wax Same?
Absolutely No, all the made of soy wax are not the same. Some candle brands use only 51% soy wax and 49% chemical wax blends to mark their candle as “soy candles. They not only use other waxes but also use metal core wicks along with artificial scent oils. Whereas, we at MUNIO home use 100 percent soy wax and natural essential oils to provide you with a pure organic soy candle.
What are the Benefits of using an All Cotton Wick?
The most important thing in a candle is a wick. A candle’s entire burning process relies on the wick, so a wick with lead in it can produce smoke and other harmful carcinogenic chemicals in your home. That’s why we use 100% European cotton wicks in our candles. If you are not sure about lead content in your candle, rub the wick of an unburnt candle on a white paper. If it leaves gray marks behind like a pencil, it contains lead in it.
Black Smoke is Coming Out From Scented Candles? How can I fix it?
If you don’t trim the wick of the candle, before burning then the candlewick can begin to produce soot. If you plan to burn the candles for more than 4 hours, then trim the wick by 1⁄4 inch before burning new or previously burned candles. And extinguish the flame at every 2-hour interval, let the candle cool down, trim the wick and relight.
How many scented candles should I burn at once in a room?

Why buy an expensive aroma candle while I opt for cheaper ones?
If you buy a good-looking candle with a strong aroma at a cheaper cost. You are tampering with your health rather than benefiting from an aroma candle. As most of the cheaper candles are made using paraffin wax and a lead wick, which releases toxins in the air. Although a good quality aroma candle can be a little expensive. As they are made from high-quality wax blends and lead-free cotton wicks which doesn’t release any toxins. They are also made using 100% organic essential oil. Which is not only beneficial for your health but also makes your home feel like a garden.

Choose a romantic aroma such as lavender for your bedroom, a divine fragrance such as jasmine for the prayer room, a warm aroma like Cinnamon for the living room to create a warm atmosphere, and peppermint aroma for the bathroom for a refreshing smell all day long.
How should I remove spilled wax from carpets, rugs, or fabric?
Gently extract the larger pieces of wax once the wax has hardened. Once done, get a clean paper towel and put it over the wax spill. Warm the paper towel by using a flat iron on a low level. The wax will start to melt under the towel and soak in the towel. Blot the wax and repeat until the wax is removed, as needed.
How can I remove wax spills from wood surfaces?
Follow the above directions for extracting wax spills from the fabric/carpet. While extracting the bigger chips of wax, make sure to use a dull object so that your wood finish is not damaged. Wipe away the wax from the surface until you heat the paper towel over the wax spill.
What safety precautions do I need to take before or while burning the candle?
Keep the wicks trimmed to approximately 1cm. Holding the wick short ensures that the candle will burn at the correct temperature and create less smoke. Before each use, re-trim the wick. After each flame, center your wick.
Each time you light your candle, allow the top surface to melt completely. Allowing the wax to melt so that the whole top surface is a runny liquid. It would ensure that your soy wax candle will melt down properly and all the way down at an equal rate.
For better results, we advise burning your candle between 1 and 3 hours at a time. You can end up with wax stuck to the surface of your glass jar if it burns for less than an hour, which may decrease burn time and may drown your wick. When 0,5-1cm of wax is left at the bottom of the container, discontinue use.
