Help / FAQ


How do I burn a candle safely?

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Never burn a candle on or near anything that might catch fire.  Keep lit candles away from drafts--open windows, air conditioners, vents, fans, etc.  Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.  Extinguish the flame if it becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Trim the wick and check for drafts before re-lighting.  If the melt pool becomes too deep, or if the candle jar seems too hot, extinguish the candle immediately and let it fully cool before touching it.  If there is any chance you might doze off to sleep, blow out your candle immediately! Wait until the flame extinguishes completely and clears of smoke before replacing our topper lid.
If you’ve created a large wax pool during your burn, blow it out gently to avoid wax splattering.

Are your candles non-toxic?

Yes!  Mere Point Soleil was founded on the principle of clean-burning and non-toxic ingredients.  We use all-natural soy and coconut wax, cotton braided wicks (no metal-core), and clean fragrance oils which are free of phthalates, carcinogens associated with California’s Prop 65, mutagens, reproductive toxins, organ toxins, and acute toxins.

How strong are the scents?

We spent a lot of time conducting burn tests to make sure we get the scent strength just right.  Our candles are designed to fill a room with exquisite fragrances without being too overpowering.  Delightfully subtle.  Feel like we went too strong or too weak? We’d love to hear your feedback and offer returns! Let us know at
