General FAQ

What type of wax do you use in your candles?

OURO candles are made from 100% coconut wax, which is the most natural, eco-friendly wax available. It is a slow burning wax to provide you with many hours of enjoyment. Additionally, coconut wax provides the cleanest burn, meaning you can expect very minimal soot compared to soy and paraffin.

What type of wicks do you use in your scented candles?

All of our wicks are 100% cotton and are lead and zinc free.

What type of oils do you use for fragrance?

We work with an outside fragrance company and use only phthalate-free premium fragrance oils.

How many hours will my candle burn for?
  • Our 12 oz matte ceramic candles have a burn time of up to 70 hours
  • Our 9 oz rocks glass candles have a burn time of up to 60 hours.
  • Our 5 oz tins have a burn time of up to 20 hours.

Where are Ouro candles made?

All of our candles are handmade and poured in micro batches by our team in Los Angeles, California.

Why does my candle have wax on the sides (tunneling)?

Our team works hard to control factors during production to encourage a clean burn. There are several factors that, while burning the candle can lead to an uneven burn. Please see our Candle Care page for the full details.

Why does my candle look separated from the glass?

These are called “wet spots” or “adhesion”and are caused by shrinkage and air bubbles that occur as the wax is cooling inside the candle container.  This happens during any temperature change.  During the drying process, depending on the room's temperature, the wax can pull away from the glass as it cools, creating this effect. However, once the candle is lit, it will go away as the glass heats up.  Most of the time the candle leaves our facility looking perfect but wet spots can develop during shipping.  Rest assured that it is temporary and does not affect the performance of your candle and will go away once the glass heats up.
