Our Abuelita Concha has many layers of fragrance, including top notes of Cocoa and Vanilla Sugar. It's the irresistible scent of chocolate and cinnamon that I first think of when I'm offered hot chocolate. Mexican hot chocolate is not your ordinary cacao powder and milk. 

The Notes

Top: Cacao, Vanilla Sugar
Middle: Mexican Hot Chocolate
Base: Cinnamon

Approximate burn time:
8 oz // Burn time: 40-45 hours 

Our Memory:  During the cold winter months in Chicago, my parents would always make us Mexican chocolate for beverages, sold in tablets not powder. My mom would heat up the nice-sized tablet in a saucepan with whole milk and serve it to us in a mug. We would sip it at first because it was really hot, but oh did we love drinking it with a concha. Dip the concha in it next time you try the most popular Mexican hot chocolate in the US. 

All candles are hand-poured in Brookfield, IL.

Candle Safety

Candle SafetyThank you for your purchase! Please review the following guidelines to ensure your candle remains in the best condition possible. 

- When lighting a soy candle for the first time, allow the wax to melt all the way to the sides of the container. Depending on the container size, this should take around 1-3 hours.

- Failure to do this will often cause "tunneling" which will limit the life of your new soy candle.

- Soy wax does not burn as hot as paraffin wax, so soy wax candles require a thicker wick, which does not burn 100% and needs to be trimmed regularly.

- Aim to trim your wick to about 1/4"/6-8mm before you re-light your candle. This will ensure a long lasting candle, minimize soot and remove any mushrooming of carbon on the end of the wick.

- Extinguish your candle by dipping the wick into the melted wax and straighten. Please remember the candles are hand poured although every effort is made to ensure consistency, every candle will be a little different.
