DUX CANDLE COLLECTION
DUX Collection uses only natural waxes.
Patrons have a choice of Fragrance Free 100% Beeswax or Premium Fragranced Beeswax which are sourced from hives in Australia. Our Beeswax has been naturally filtered through the use of cheese cloth to ensure a stinger free wax and clean burn.
Beeswax is a natural product that has been used for centuries by candle makers. Even today it is recognised for its properties of cleaning the air as it releases negative ions when it burns. These negative ions attract positively charged ions found in pollen, dust mites, allergens, bacteria etc. and neutralise it, forming a new molecule which is heavier than air which subsequently falls to the ground. Research has shown that increased negative ions can improve your mood, concentration and well-being.
Enjoy the pleasure of being recharged and refreshed when you burn our DUX Beeswax candles.
Our Soy, Coconut and Palm wax are produced from environmentally friendly conscious growers who regenerate their crops.
Our waxes are kosher and eco friendly.

BURNING YOUR DUX CANDLE
- Burn a candle in a ventilated room.
- Candles have a burn memory. Burn it until the entire surface melts, to avoid tunnelling. Once a memory burn has been established it will continue to burn that way for the entire life of the candle.
- Trim the wick every time you light it to 6mm to avoid smoking, soot etc. Avoid trimming too short as you'll have difficulty relighting.
- To preserve the fragrance, burn the large candle for only 2-3 hours at a time during the first third of the candle and 1-2 hours for the remaining of the candle. Be sure to trim the wick intermittently to avoid smoking.
- Keep your candle away from children, pets, drafts, air currents, anything flammable and never unattended.
- Protect the table or surface on which the candle sits with a heat resistant coaster.
- Should the wick become off centre, gently readjust the extinguished candle wick when the wax is cool yet molten to the centre of the container in order to prevent the glass of the jar from cracking.
- To extinguish the candle gently place a candle dome or snuffer over it.
- Always leave 5 mm of non-molten wax at the bottom of your candle to prevent any heat damage to your surface or jar cracking. Candle warmers are not recommended.
- Keep the wax pool clean of wick trimmings, insects and debris at all times as it will affect the candle burn.
- Wipe the inside of the glass with a damp cloth to remove any soot once the wax has cooled down.
- Extinguish the candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers vigorously. Once it's cool trim the wick and check for air currents/drafts before re-lighting.
- Negative Ions: It has been recognised for centuries that Beeswax has properties for cleaning the air through releasing negative ions which attracts positively charged ions and neutralising it when it is been burnt. The full benefit of the ionising effect of burning a beeswax candle is achieved when you burn a naturally fragranced beeswax candle that is fragrance free.
- Smoking Candle: Smoking flame or flickering flame can be caused by a wick that's too long or drafts in the air. Extinguish your candle, trim the wick to 6mm with our wick trimmer which trims it to its required length and is large enough to reach the bottom of large candle jars.
- Cracking Candle: Beeswax is a very hard wax with a high temperature burn and when it cools it might crack due to the sudden drop in temperature. This will not hinder your burn but is a tell tale sign of its purity.
- Votive Candle: Votive candle holders should replicate the size and shape of the candle. A snug fit creates a better burn for these powerfully fragranced candles.
- Fragranced Candles: Consider the size of the room that you would like your candle to fragrance before purchasing it. A large room needs a candle jar which will have a wide melt pool or more than one candle to fragrance it as the fragrance comes from the melt pool and not the flame.
- Fragrance Overload: Once the candle is burning for a while your senses become neutralise to it and you lose the ability to smell it. This is a natural occurrence of the human body and will come back as soon as you leave the room or smell coffee beans.
- Candle Drips: Ensure your pillar and taper candles are securely fitted in its candle holder to avoid candles from capsizing and catching any wayward drips.
