The Important Bits

Candle Care

For best results when lighting for the first time, allow wax to melt to the sides of the jar, ensuring a consistent burn and prevention of the dreaded "tunnelling" Light your candle in a well-ventilated room, away from draughts or fans, which can cause sooting (black marks on the vessel) or rapid, uneven burning Maximum recommended burn time is 4 hrs per burn Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings and matches, as debris in the wax can act as a secondary wick. Centre and straighten the wick after blowing out the flame using a snuffer. A candle which has been burning too long can cause wick migration. If you see a flaming wick come close to the vessel wall, blow it out and straighten the wick to prevent vessels cracking. Long or crooked wicks can create high flames, smoking or sooting. Trimming the wick to 5mm (when the wax has set) is the easiest way to prevent this. Make sure you stop burning your candle when 10mm of wax remains at the bottom, keeping an eye on a burning candle when the wax is low CAUTION - candle tins and glasses will be HOT when wax is molten, DO NOT attempt to move the candle until cool
