Candle Care

Mayowa Samuel Candles use an all-natural, paraffin-free, cruelty-free wax, blended of Soy Wax, and a cotton, lead free wick.

Mayowa Samuel aims to be an eco-friendly company, with foam free packaging and minimal usages of plastics.  Our shipping materials are biodegradable, our gift bags are reusable (and cute) and our candle vessels are meant to be reused or recycled.

For optimal burning, trim wicks to a ¼” before each light to avoid smoking and overheating. Once the flame is extinguished make sure the wick is upright and centered.

The first burn of any candle should be long enough for the entire top layer of wax to liquify.  This will ensure an even burn for each light.  Refrain from burning candles longer than 3 hours at a time, and never burn a candle when there is less than ¼” of wax at the base.

Always protect the surface on which the candle sits.



  1. Place reeds into the bottle & they will absorb the liquid, releasing the fragrance from the top of the reeds into the air
  2. Flip the reeds 2-3x in the first 24hrs to ensure even distribution.
  3. After this, flip reeds periodically to release a stronger scent.
  4. You can use less reed sticks and turn less often if you prefer a more subtle scent.

To refresh the fragrance of the reed diffuser, simply repeat steps 2-4 every few days or when required.
