Candle Care

CANDLE CARE

  • Always trim your wick down to 1/4 after each burn. This keeps the wick from developing a bulbous tip while keeping the flame low.  By trimming your cotton wick each time, you will avoid uncontrolled flickering and a faster burn. Wooden wick must be trimmed for proper burn, the wick will not light if it has a burnt piece at the top. 
  • Let your soy candle burn long enough each time so that the wax melts all the way to the edge of the vessel to avoid tunnelling
  • To keep your candle clean and free of dust and debris, place lid on when not burning. (Do not use to extinguish flame)
  • Do not place lit candles near air drafts such as open windows, fans and high traffic areas in the home. Drafts will cause a faster and uneven burn, as well as soot to gather along the edges
  • Do not store your candle in direct sunlight. This can cause the wax to melt faster and the colour of wax to change
  • Using a candle snuffer, snuff the candle to extinguish the flame to avoid wax splatter
  • Always place your candle on a heat-safe surface when burning to avoid heat damage 

 * candles with whip frosting:  place them on a coaster or plate - the whip wax sometimes comes out of the jar and runs down the side of the jar.
