The NOLA Candle transports your mind to the beautiful street music and landscapes of New Orleans with its charming aroma. The sweet, spicy, and boozy fragrance of bourbon and honey is magic in a jar. Be it a relaxing weekend or a house party, this candle is all you need to set the mood right.
Seventh & Oak believes in the power of slowing down and practicing self care, and that fragrance shouldn’t come at the expense of the environment or hurt animals. Their natural soy candles feature a wood wick and are made with ethically sourced, non-toxic materials.

Trim your wick to 0.25”
Trimming your wick is important for so many reasons - the most important being that your candle will burn properly.
You can trim your S&O candle using a wick trimmer, scissors or nail cutter. We recommend trimming to 3/16th of an inch (0.25”). Wood wicks perform best when they are closer to the wax.
Re-trim your wick before every use, not just the first time you light your candle. Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris.
Burn for at least 2 hours:
When you light your candle for the first time, be sure to let it burn for 2 - 4 hours, or until the wax has melted to the edge of the jar (full melt pool). If you do not do this, your candle will tunnel. Tunnelling means that the wick is burning straight down the centre of the candle without creating a full melt pool within 2 - 4 hours of being lit.
If a full melt pool has not occurred after 4 hours, don't worry. Extinguish the candle, allow it to cool and try again. Wood wick candles need a lot of tending to, for an enjoyable experience.
You can also use a spoon or chopstick to scoop unmelted wax into the wax pool.
The more you burn your candle, the more the wax melts. A full melt pool would have been achieved when you’ve burned your candle half way through.
Pay attention to your candle:
- Never ever leave your candle unattended
- Never burn your candle close to anything that is flammable
- Never use a candle as a night light
- Never extinguish candles with water
- Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room
Safety instructions are on the bottom of your S&O candle. Please read and follow them carefully
Stop burning when there’s only 1/2” of wax left:
Once 1/2” of the wax is left, don’t burn any longer. This prevents the candle from overheating and damaging the surface below it. Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes or the flame becomes too high. S&O wick clips keep the flame at safety height above the bottom of the candle jar. This is in place to reduce the risk of overheating at the end of the candle's life.
Reuse your candle jar:
When you are done burning your candle, remove the remaining wax and wash your jar with soap and warm water. Voila! You now have a new mini terrarium, makeup brush holder, propagation jar or drinking glass. Whatever your preferences, you can reuse the jar to your hearts content.
