What is Ube?

Ube is a purple yam that is native to the Philippines and is widely used in Filipino cuisine. It is known for its sweet, nutty flavor and vibrant purple color, which makes it a popular choice for use in desserts and baked goods.

Ube has a long history in the Philippines, where it has been grown and cultivated for centuries. It is an important part of the country's culinary tradition, and is often used to make dishes such as ube halaya, a sweet, purplish-colored jam made from boiled and mashed ube.

In recent years, ube has gained popularity around the world, particularly in the United States, where it has become a trend in food and beverage products. It is often used to flavor ice cream, pastries, and other sweets, and can be found in a variety of products in markets and specialty stores. Despite its increasing popularity, ube remains an integral part of Filipino culture and cuisine, and is an important part of the country's food heritage.

Candle care is crucial for maintaining the quality and longevity of your favorite candles, whether they have cotton or wood wicks. Here's how to ensure you get the most out of your candle experience:

For Cotton Wicks:

Trim the Wick: Before each use, trim the cotton wick to about 1/4 inch to prevent excessive smoking and soot buildup. A trimmed wick ensures a cleaner burn and minimizes the risk of uneven flames.

Avoid Tunneling: During the first burn, allow the candle to melt across the entire surface to prevent tunneling, where wax accumulates around the wick, leaving wax along the edges. This promotes an even burn throughout the life of the candle.

Burn Time: Limit each burn session to 3-4 hours to prevent overheating and extend the lifespan of your candle. Extinguish the flame when it reaches the recommended time and allow the candle to cool before relighting.

Avoid Drafts: Keep the candle away from drafts or breezy areas to ensure an even burn and prevent flickering or uneven melting.

Extinguish Safely: Use a snuffer or gently blow out the flame to extinguish the candle instead of blowing on it, which can cause wax splatter or smoke.

For Wood Wicks:

Trim the Wick: Wood wicks typically don't require trimming like cotton wicks. However, ensure that the wick is no longer than 1/4 inch before lighting to prevent excessive flickering and uneven burning.

First Burn: Allow the candle to burn until the wax pool reaches the edge of the container to prevent tunneling and ensure an even burn in subsequent uses.

Burn Time: Similar to cotton wicks, limit each burn session to 3-4 hours to prevent overheating and maintain the integrity of the wood wick.

Mind the Ash: After extinguishing the flame, if there's any ash buildup on the wood wick, gently break it off before relighting to ensure a clean burn.

Safety First: Always place the candle on a heat-resistant surface and away from flammable materials. Monitor the candle while it's burning, especially if it's a wood-wicked candle, as the flame may be larger and more visible.

By following these simple tips, you'll maximize the enjoyment of your candles, whether they feature cotton or wood wicks, while ensuring safety and longevity.

Ube 8oz Candle

I love how minimal and aesthetic the packaging and the candle is itself. It was shipped promptly and packaged with care. I just wish the fragrance was a bit more strong for the amount I paid for.
