Frequently Asked Questions

1) Q.  Do Front Porch Candles & Tarts need to Cure?

A. No, we test all of our staple scents after approx. 8 hours. Some customers do prefer to cure their tarts 1-2 weeks.

2) Q. How long does one wax melt last?

A.  If you search on google- "how long does one wax melt last"  the average is 6-12 hours.  At Front Porch Candles, one wax melt can last anywhere from 8 hours to 4 days depending on the warmer, how strong you like your melts, how long you melt them at a time, etc.  If you are looking for a longer lasting item, our candles are a great option.

3) Q.  What type of Tart Wax Warmer do you suggest?

A. We recommend an electric hot plate tart warmer for larger more open areas and a light bulb electric warmer for smaller rooms such as bedrooms.  Also be sure your warmer is not near a cold air return in your house, this can decrease your scent throw.

4) Q. Do I have to worry about ordering in the Summer Months?

A. Wax Melts:  In the summer months we put Avoid Heat Warnings on the packages.  If you live in hotter states such as Florida, Arizona, or Texas, our clamshell wax melts, warming oils, and soy candles are great choices to avoid any issues.  We also have an option to add an ice pack with your order- visit this page to order
