candle care and how to look after your scented candle

TRIM YOUR WICK


BEFORE LIGHTING, ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOUR WICK IS TRIMMED TO 1/4". THIS PREVENTS MUSHROOMING  OF THE WICK, ALLOWS FOR A SLOWER BURN AND PREVENTS BUILD UP OF SOOT . BE CAREFUL NOT TO ALLOW ANY TRIMMINGS TO FALL INTO THE WAX, THIS CREATES A FIRE HAZARD. WE RECOMMEND USING A WICK TRIMMER TO CATCH ANY TRIMMINGS.


KNOW WHEN TO SAY GOODBYE


WHEN YOU HAVE 1/2" OF WAX LEFT IN THE BOTTOM OF YOUR CANDLE ITS TIME TO SAY GOODBYE. IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO BURN YOUR CANDLE COMPLETELY AS IT MAY CAUSE THE GLASS TO OVERHEAT. 


BE AWARE OF ANY DRAFTS


KEEP YOUR CANDLES AWAY FROM ANY DRAFTS OR OTHER HEAT SOURCES. THIS MAY CAUSE YOUR CANDLE TO BURN QUICKER THAN NORMAL AND UNEVENLY


LOVE AT FIRST LIGHT


SOY WAX HAS A MEMORY - IF YOU DON'T ALLOW THE WHOLE SURFACE TO BURN ON THE FIRST LIGHT, IT WILL BE DIFFICULT FOR THE WAX TO MELT PAST THE 'RING' ON FUTURE BURNS. BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A SPARE FEW HOURS TO RELAX WITH YOUR CANDLE ON THE FIRST BURN


USE THE CORRECT LIGHTING TOOL


WE RECOMMEND USING EITHER LONG MATCHES OR A GRILL LIGHTER TO LIGHT YOUR CANDLES. THIS HELPS AVOID ANY UNSIGHTLY SOOT MARKS ON THE GLASS, AND WILL MAKE LIGHTING THE WICK EASIER AS THE CANDLE BURNS DOWN


SIZE REALLY DOES MATTER


KEEP IN MIND THE SIZE OF YOUR ROOM WHEN CHOOSING A CANDLE SIZE. SMALL CANDLES ARE SUITABLE FOR SMALLER ROOMS LIKE BATHROOMS AND GUEST ROOMS, WHEREAS LARGER CANDLES ARE BETTER FOR BIGGER ROOMS. WE USE THE HIGHEST RECOMMENDED RATIO OF FRAGRANCE OIL TO WAX, SO YOU'RE LIKELY TO EXPERIENCE THE AROMA IN YOUR ROOM WITHOUT LIGHTING. FOR LARGER ROOMS WE RECOMMEND USING TWO OR THREE


LET YOUR CANDLE REST


CANDLES SHOULD NOT BE BURNED FOR MORE THAN 4 HOURS AT A TIME, AND ALLOWED TO COOL FOR AT LEAST 2 HOURS BETWEEN EACH BURN. THIS PREVENTS OVERHEATING.
