Melting Candle

I had a question in reference to the candle and having it melt. I placed it in my room, a fairly temperature-controlled space, and picked it up and noticed that the outside had a residue and that the candle had been leaking. Mind you, I've never used it before. Am I perhaps storing it in too hot of an area, or is something else happening?

Thank you!

I've heard a lot of mentions about the fact that these candles tend to melt in heat, so that might be what happened? Seems odd to have it melt at room temperature though.

I've had mine start to "sweat" the oil when it's really warm in the room during the summer, but I'm talking an ambient temperature of about 85 degrees Fahrenheit and I haven't had anything leak out yet. Is there a crack somewhere in the ceramic maybe?

I have no idea, but it might be what the both of you said. I've been storing it in a darker area of my room where the light does not hit, so I'm going to check on it in a few days and see if that helps. If not, I'm going to put it in my closet and we'll go from there.

I haven't had mine melt but I have definitely had mine sweat before at room temperature. It seems to be something these soy wax candles do :/

Soy candles are more "oily" but that's because they're natural. You can actually use the "wax" for massage oil.

That's srange... I just barely got mine and haven't noticed anything like that yet. I think if you have a hot room the candle could probably sweat or get a little melty. I store mine in the box after it cools off.

Same here...sometimes they seem to sweat oil but never had any of mine leak.

i've had massage candles that sweat when the room is too warm, and little drops of oil build up on the surface of the candle but never had it turn into a big melted mess or leak. i had it stored upright so maybe if i had it on it's side it might've leaked a bit of the oil it was sweating.
