Q: Why Does The Candle Wax Sometimes Change From White To Ivory?
As soy wax is exposed to the air, it oxidizes or 'discolors'.
This is normal, and in no way effects the burn/scent/quality of the candle!

Q: How Much Of The Bath/Body Product Should I Use?
Obviously, this depends on the area you're looking to moisturize!
Generally speaking though, start with a dime-sized amount. You'll know

Soy wax only heats to a few degrees above body temperature - so there's no risk of serious burning, if spilled.
Soy candles are natural since they’re made from vegetable oil (soybeans). Whereas, paraffin candles are made from petroleum oil. As a result, soy wax candles do not increase the CO2 level in the atmosphere like paraffin candles do. Furthermore, soy candles do not require chemicals to scent them. Since soybeans are vegetables, soy wax (basically made from hydrogenated soybean oil) is naturally biodegradable. Soy wax is also easier to remove from materials and other surfaces than paraffin wax.
Soy candles burn at least 50% longer than regular candles. Therefore, even though soy wax candles are sometimes more expensive than paraffin wax candles to buy, they are still more cost-effective in the long run. For comparison’s sake, soy candles generally cost less than beeswax candles (another natural wax alternative to paraffin). Furthermore, soy candles burn evenly, leaving almost no excess wax on the sides of the jar.
Soy candles burn cleaner than regular paraffin candles do. As a result, they don’t produce the black soot like paraffin candles do. Candle soot from paraben / paraffin wax is more of a nuisance than you might realize. If you burn a lot of those candles, over time not only will it discolor your walls & furniture and stain the edges of your carpet, but it actually can increase the CO2 level within the room! Paraffin candles release a petro-carbon soot that is circulated through your air ducts. This soot, according to the American Lung Association, contains 11 documented toxins, 2 of which are known carcinogens — toluene and benzene.
Soy candles are non-toxic since they are made of vegetable oil, have a lower melting point (so the wax itself warms to just a few degrees above our body’s normal temperature), produce negligible amounts of soot, and release no known carcinogens into the air. Compared to paraffin candles, soy wax candles are much healthier for humans, pets, and the environment. Plus, they clean up easier (just use soap and water) if the wax is spilled.
The scent from soy candles is much stronger and more pleasant than the scent from paraffin wax candles. Because of the lower melting point of soy wax, there is a larger amount of the liquid wax
pool around the candle wick itself. It is from this liquid wax pool and the wick itself that the essential oils evaporate into the atmosphere. When it’s said that a candle scent “throws well”, this means it
fills the room with a strong, lasting scent. Soy wax candles not only have a great scent throw, but
also have a cleaner smell. It’s been noted by many that paraffin wax will give them headaches. Of
course it’s not the scent itself, but the additional chemicals the paraffin is putting off.
Because soy burns so clean, you’ll get a cleaner, safer scent.
