This is a 4oz soy wax candle colored with liquid candle dye in a small glass jar with a BPA free lid. The wick is made from waxed cotton. The scent comes from Sage essential oil at a total of 20 drops, so if you should accidentally get any on you it is unlikely to cause skin irritation (do not intentionally rub the wax into your skin, the candle is meant for scent only). Burn time will be around 24hrs total. Candles made with pure essential oils have a more gentle throw, and will not behave like a traditional scented candle in perfuming the entire house (instead only perfuming a room, sometimes only lightly).
