Caring for your Candle
Hand Poured Soy Candles
It’s important to keep your wick trimmed to 5mm. This will keep the wick at optimum flame height and prevent the wick from smoking. To preserve the candle fragrance, do not burn for more than four hours at a time.
The first time you burn your candle allow the wax to burn to the sides of the jar.
Scented candles develop a ‘burn memory’ and if not burnt to the edges will ‘tunnel’ and burn unevenly through the centre of the wax. It will also allow maximum fragrance to be released on each and every burn.
Never leave a lit candle unsupervised. Keep the flame away from drafts, curtains and other flammable items around the home. Keep burning candles out of reach of children and pets and always place on a stable, heat resistant surface.
The handmade nature of your candle means that it may have slight imperfections on the top or sides of your candle. This will not affect how the candle burns or smells, it is simply the characteristic of natural soy wax.
