Why is your candle flame throwing out soot (black smoke) ?
It is completely normal for some black smoke (soot) to be released upon having a candle lit. This is a natural burning process as the wick releases the fragrance from the wax. To keep soot to a minimum, you should practice good candle care. Meaning, wicks should be trimmed each time before lighting the candle. This can be done with scissors, nail clippers, wire cutters or simply just a wick trimmer. Untrimmed wicks will cause issues with your candle producing higher amounts of soot and smoke. So please... TRIM YOUR WICKS :)

Why choose Zen Auras?
Our mission has always been to create products that are made with a luxury feel at an affordable price.From our very first candle in late 2019, all of our products are created in small-batches, curated by hand by our founder Crystal. Most of our candles are custom fragrance blends that may be a concoction of 2 or more oil blends, selected by me.
Why do we use manufactured oils?
We use fragrance (manufactured) oils because they are precisely developed for use in candles and body products. We wouldn't want to put something in your home or on your. body if it wasn't safe to use. Fragrance oils also allow for more complex and exclusive scent profiles. While fragrance oils allow us to keep our prices affordable, you may find that some candles are blended with essential oils.
