When you first light your candle, allow the wax to melt across the
entire surface, reaching the edges of the glass. This step prevents
tunneling and ensures an even burn throughout the candle's lifespan.
Trim the Wick Before Each Use:
It is normal for the wick in soy wax candles to develop a
mushroom-shaped tip. Simply trim the little ball off the wick before
lighting. Be careful not to cut the wick too short, as it may become
submerged in wax. (6 millimeters is perfect!)
Place your candle away from drafty areas within your home. This
prevents disruptions to the flame and promotes a consistent, clean burn.
To ensure safety, don’t burn your candle for more than four hours at
one time. The flame can get too hot, start smoking, and leave black
stains on the glass.
Avoid Direct Sunlight: Keep your candle out of the sun’s rays to prevent discoloration of the wax.
Keep the Burn Pool Clean:
If you notice any black residue at the rim of the glass, simply wipe it
away with a tissue. This may indicate that your wick is too long.
Know When to Stop:
Extinguish the flame when approximately 6mm of wax remains at the
bottom of the candle jar. Then, you can clean and repurpose the jar.
They make great keepsakes. Now it’s time to get a new candle with a
different photo and scent!
