40 hours burn time
Ships in a reusable mud-dyed cotton pouch
A few tips to ensure optimal burning: trim wick to 1/4" before burning every time to avoid soot. Burn for 2 to 4 hours every time, allowing the wax to liquify from edge to edge to avoid tunnelling. Never leave a burning candle unattended, never move a candle while burning.

In addition, oils, Underwear, Bodysuits, Swimwear and B.E.D.s (Body Exploration Devices including vibrators, wands and any other intimate device or lubricant) are final sale and exempt from being returned or exchanged due to their personal nature for sanitary reasons however if you believe your B.E.D. is defective (i.e. not charging, won't stay on or turn on), please email us so we can troubleshoot with you (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We require a receipt or proof of purchase issued by The Lake to complete your return.

We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund. If you are approved, your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original payment method within a certain amount of days.
Late or missing refunds (if applicable) If you haven't received a refund, first recheck your bank account. Then contact your credit card company; it may take some time before your refund is officially posted. Next, contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted. If you've done all this and still have not received your refund, please get in touch with us at email@example.com.
