Candle Tips & Instructions

☽  when lighting a new candle for the first time, allow it to burn for at least 3-4 hours or until the wax has melted to the edges of the container. this helps to prevent tunneling, which is when the wax burns down the center of the candle and leaves a ring of wax around the edges. 

☽ always trim the wick to 5mm before lighting the candle. this helps the candle to burn evenly and prevents excessive soot and smoke.

☽ keep the candle away from drafts, as this can cause uneven burning and shorten the life of the candle.

☽  burn the candle for no more than 4 hours at a time, and allow it to cool completely before relighting.

☽ never leave a burning candle unattended or near flammable objects.

☽ extinguish the candle by using a snuffer or gently blowing it out. do not use water to extinguish a candle.

☽ keep the wax pool free of debris, such as wick trimmings or matches, as this can cause the flame to become too high and potentially dangerous.

☽ if you notice any black soot around the rim of the candle jar, extinguish the candle and trim the wick. excessive soot can be a sign that the wick is too long or that the candle is burning too hot.

☽ to prevent the wick from drifting off-center, use a wick centering tool or gently nudge the wick back to the center while the wax is still melted.

☽  if you're not going to be using your candles for an extended period of time, store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. this will help to prevent the wax from melting or becoming discolored.

☽ when you're ready to dispose of a candle, allow the wax to cool and solidify, then scoop out any remaining wax and recycle the container.

By following these additional tips & instructions, you can help ensure that your candles burn cleanly and evenly, and that you can enjoy them for as long as possible.
