Your favorite vacation poured into a glass vessel – that's exactly how our Bora Bora Candle smells like. The sweet and punchy fragrance of tangerine and peach are very much prominent in the scent, carrying a tropical, relaxing vibe. If you're a fan of exotic, fruity aromas, you're surely going to love this one. All you have to do is light up the candle and close your eyes. In an instant, you'll imagine yourself chilling by the serene blue sea of the Bora Bora islands, sipping on a cocktail.
Get this for yourself, or for a friend who's been missing their beach holidays a bit too much.

Trim your wick to 0.25”
Trimming your wick is important for so many reasons - the most important being that your candle will burn properly.
You can trim your S&O candle using a wick trimmer, scissors or nail cutter. We recommend trimming to 3/16th of an inch (0.25”). Wood wicks perform best when they are closer to the wax.
Re-trim your wick before every use, not just the first time you light your candle. Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris.
Burn for at least 2 hours
When you light your candle for the first time, be sure to let it burn for 2 - 4 hours, or until the wax has melted to the edge of the jar (full melt pool). If you do not do this, your candle will tunnel. Tunnelling means that the wick is burning straight down the centre of the candle without creating a full melt pool within 2 - 4 hours of being lit.
If a full melt pool has not occurred after 4 hours, don't worry. Extinguish the candle, allow it to cool and try again. Wood wick candles need a lot of tending to, for an enjoyable experience.
You can also use a spoon or chopstick to scoop unmelted wax into the wax pool.
The more you burn your candle, the more the wax melts. A full melt pool would have been achieved when you’ve burned your candle half way through.
Stop burning after 4 hours or when your candle has achieved a full melt pool
Once your candle has burned for 4 hours, extinguish it. Do not burn longer than this time to maximize the full benefit of your S&O candle and to keep the glass jar from getting too hot. Relight it once the candle has cooled.
Pay attention to your candle
Never ever leave your candle unattended, especially if you have pets or kids
Never burn your candle close to anything that is flammable
Never use a candle as a night light
Never extinguish candles with water
Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room
Safety instructions are on the bottom of your S&O candle. Please read and follow them carefully
Stop burning when there’s only 1/2” of wax left
Once 1/2” of the wax is left, don’t burn any longer. This prevents the candle from overheating and damaging the surface below it. Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes or the flame becomes too high.
Our candles are quite the sensory experience and we understand if you just can't get enough. However, there's only so much wax to burn. Our wick clips keep the flame at safety height above the bottom of the candle jar. This is in place to reduce the risk of overheating at the end of the candles life.
Reuse or return your candle jar
When you are done burning your candle, remove the remaining wax and wash your jar with soap and warm water. Voila! You now have a new mini terrarium, makeup brush holder, propagation jar or whiskey glass. Whatever your preferences, you can reuse the jar to your hearts content.
Can’t find any use for it? No worries, email us at email@example.com for instructions on how to send us the empty jar intact and you would get 10% off your next order.

I love the scent of the Bora Bora candle-Tangerine and Peach!
It just reminds me of summer, so fresh,fruity and delicious smelling.
It is not overwhelming either, just the right amount of scent! Love it!
Karla, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! Stunning photo too!
Every part of my experience here was lovely. They were quick to respond and answer my questions, the candles were shipped promptly and arrived safely, and this one is my favorite-it smells DELIGHTFUL.
Thank you so much for your review, Erin!
Personally, I have never liked candles because the ones I used to buy had too strong of a scent and gave me headaches. I was surprised when I received the Bora Bora scent because it was nice and subtle and the crackling sounds from the wick brings me so much joy. I highly recommend everyone to get their candles from Seventh & Oak!
Thank you for your feedback, Jennie!
Seventh & Oak candles were the first candles I ever bought in my life and they have turned me into a true candle lover! I first bought bora bora last year as a mini and loved it so much, I'm now on my second full size candle 😍

I'm a scented candle junkie and I came across the New Orleans candle in a pop-up shop in Port Colborne. Absolutely incredible scent that fills the house and the crackling wick is a nice bonus to an already amazing candle. Will be checking out more from this place.
We're so glad you discovered us, Aaron. First of many candle purchases to come! We appreciate your support.
