Candle Care Instructions

fragrant soy candle

First Burn – When you light your soy candle for the first time allow the wax to burn across the entire surface to the edges of the container. This will assist in preventing tunneling & help promote an even burn for the duration of the candle’s life.

Trim Wick Before Every Use – It is normal in Soy Wax for the wick to mushroom. This is easily fixed by trimming your wick to 6mm. Trimming will ensure your candle does not burn hotter than it should & thus will prolong the life of the candle. Trim the little ball on the end of your wick to keep your candle burning gently, be sure not to cut it too short or it will become engulfed by wax.

Avoid Draughts – Keep candle away from draughts & vibrations around the home so as not to disturb the flame & help to keep an even clean burn.

Burn Time – For safety reasons DO NOT BURN your candle more than 4 hours at a time.

Putting Candles Out – It is always best to use a Candle Dipper rather than blowing out to prevent wicks from drifting off centre. This will help to maximise the candle’s burn time.

Keep The Burn Pool Clean – If you get any black at the rim of your glass, simply wipe it away with a tissue, this may be a sign that your wick is too long.

Time Is Up – Extinguish the flame when there is approx. 6mm of wax in the bottom of candle jar. It is time to clean the jar, refill or repurpose it & grab yourself another Burning Scent Candle.

Lastly, enjoy you candle
