Applewood Candle Co.
'The Long' Dough Bowl Candle
Our Long Dough Bowls are the perfect size to add a hint of rustic light to your existing decor, as well as small spaces!
Our dough bowls are hand-carved, and no two bowls are the same, each dough bowl will hold a slightly different amount of wax. Each 'Long' dough bowl holds two to three pounds of wax, has five of our signature, crackling wooden wicks and burns for 10 - 20 hours. These amounts vary, based on the shape and thickness of each handmade dough bowl. The average dimension of this dough bowl is 6 - 7 inches wide and 18 - 20 inches long.
After you are finished burning their candle, with a little bit of elbow-grease and hot water, the dough bowl can be used as a holder for decorative objects, dried flowers, or other home decor pieces!
Let this delicate, yet complex blend of blue spruce, frosted pine & cypress bring you back to your childhood days of hanging stockings & decorating the tree.

Festive notes of frosted citrus & sugar plums, mingle with the holiday comforts of cozy cashmere, warm amber & light musk to create an inviting blend that is sure to embody holiday cheer!

Our Reed Diffuser comes in a classic, thick-walled clear glass bottle, accented with a metallic gold lip and your choice of reed color, enclosed in a linen dust and box.
ALLOW A FULL MELT POOL
Be sure to keep your candle lit long enough for the melted wax to almost reach the sides of the vessel. This is called a full melt pool. This process could take 2 - 4 hours to be achieved.
One new coincidence we've noticed with our new coconut-soy blend of wax is that a full melt pool is sometimes not achieved until you get half-way through the life of your candle - and that is a-okay! A major benefit of our switch to coconut-soy wax, is that this wax is a little more forgiving and, most times, does self-correct!
TRIM YOUR WICK
Pinch the black portion of the wick between your thumb and index finger and remove before re-lighting candle.
Failure to do so can cause the candle to extinguish itself. You may even melt a bit of the wax around the wick with your lighter before lighting wick, to assist the wax flow, which helps keep candle lit.
PRACTICE SAFE CANDLE BURNING
Never leave your candle unattended (always be in the same room as your candle), keep away from drafts, burn on a level fire-resistant surface and always extinguish the wicks when melt pool has almost reached the sides of the vessel. Never leave your candle where it could be reached by children or pets.
Discontinue use when silver wick clips are visible, or a 1/2 inch of wax remains at the bottom of the vessel.
NEVER BURN CANDLE FOR LONGER THAN 4 HOURS
An ideal candle burn time is between 2 and 4 hours - if burned longer your candle may overheat, will not burn as clean and could cause serious harm.
HELP PREVENT DISCOLORATION -
Our sustainable wax is 100% pure and additive-free. A natural characteristic of soy is that it discolors when exposed to light (both natural and artificial). Keep candle out of direct light to maintain creamy white coloring.
REPURPOSE YOUR VESSEL -
When only 1/2 inch of wax remains in the vessel (or you see the silver wick clip), your candle is finished. To clean out remaining wax, carefully pour hot water into vessel and allow to sit until water cools. Wax will melt and float to top of vessel. Repeat, if needed. Clean with papertowel & dishsoap. Let dry and restyle your new vessel!
Almost all of our vessels can be reused! We suggest reusing our jar or tin vessels as flower vases, succulent vessels, desk decor, etc. We also suggest reusing your dough bowls for holiday decor, etc.
