Candle Care

When first lighting your candle it is important to trim the wick at least ¼ inch. This prevents uneven burning, dripping or flaring.

Your first burn is the most important, when lighting for the first time, burn the candle until wax melts across the entire surface up to the sides of vessel as this will prevent tunnelling, and create an even burn for the duration of the candle's 'life'. Do not blow out the candle until it has burned right to the edge.

If your candle is mushrooming, the wick is too large, blow out and trim your wick before every lighting. The wick only needs to be approximately 4-6mm in length, keeping it this length will avoid mushrooming which can result in unnecessary soot.

If soot forms on the inside of the vessel, extinguish candle, wait for it to cool, then wipe with a clean damp cloth. Trim wick and relight.

Always make sure you place your candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This will also help prevent possible heat damage to counters and table surfaces, and prevent glass containers from cracking or breaking.

Avoid drafts, vents or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting, and excessive dripping.

Burn for 2-3 hours each time you light the candle. This will help the candle burn evenly, and remember to trim wicks before each burn.

If your candle begins to tunnel, burn your candle for 30 minutes to an hour, blow out and scrape the wax until the candle is level. Let the candle cool and relight and burn like usual.

Extinguish candle with a snuffer, or dip the wick into the melted wax and then straighten wick to prevent smoking and also prevent hot wax from splattering.
