The Original Troy Boy is inspired by the most famous resident in the history of Troy, NY: Uncle Sam. Legend has it that Uncle Sam was a meat packer named Samuel Wilson, from Troy, NY. He supplied rations for soldiers and was required to stamp his name and where the rations came from onto the food he sent. Sam Wilson's packages were stamped “E.A – US.” Someone asked what that stood for, and a coworker jokingly said “Elbert Anderson (his contractor) and Uncle Sam,” but it actually stood for United States.
What's more American than Uncle Sam and Apple Pie? This scent is a sweet, cinnamony apple pie smell so realistic you'll think there is a pie fresh out of your oven!
8oz glass mason jar, soy wax, cotton wick, and phthalate free fragrance oil. No dyes are used in this candles.
Our 8oz mason jars are 3" tall and 3.5" in wide. We hand pour our candles in small batches to ensure the highest quality.
Approximate burn time for 8oz: 40 hours.
Why soy wax & the melt pool:
When first burning your candle, please allow a full melt pool to form across the top of the container 1/4" - 3/8" deep. Depending on the size, your candle could take 2-3 hours to achieve a full melt pool. Doing this will guarantee that every time the candle is lit it will retain the memory of a full melt pool. This insures the proper amount of scent is being released while reducing tunneling and the excess of unmelted wax along the sides, leaving the container clean.
Each candle is surrounded by a nest of shredded kraft paper to insure safe shipping. To help save paper, we do not send printed invoices with our shipments. You can access your invoice by reviewing the receipt emailed to you.
Current processing time BEFORE YOUR ORDER SHIPS is 3-5 business days. Weird Beard Candle Co ships domestically via USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. Priority Mail is typically delivered within 2-3 business days. You will receive a tracking notification once your item has been shipped.
Never leave a candle burning unattended or within reach of small children, pets, flammable objects, or a draft. Keep wax free of matches, wick trimmings, or other flammable material. Keep wick centered & trimmed to 1/4" to prevent smoking & soot build up on container or other item. Burn only on stable heat resistant surface for no more than 4 hours at a time. Discontinue use when only 1/2" of wax remains in bottom. Do not move candle while burning or if wax is hot. Failure to follow safety instructions could result in fire hazard, injury, or smoke damage.
