Arbutus Tea Lights are sold with Canadian-made, fire-proof polycarbonate cups in which they should be burned.
- Whether this cup is used or not, they must be burned inside a container. They are designed to liquify inside the container. Tea lights should be burned until the melted wax pool reaches the side of the container.
- Soy tea lights are particularly useful in essential oil diffusers, as they burn at a lower temperature than other waxes.
