How to Care for your Candle

A little bit of care will ensure you get the absolute best out of your soy candle.By following these steps you will be rewarded with beautiful candles that burn evenly and without smoke.

 

Here are our top tips for the best candle care.

1.TRIM YOUR WICK

Trimming your wick is an essential part of candle care. You should trim your wick to around 4mm before you burn your candle or for every 4 hours of burn time. Trimming ensures that the candle will burn evenly, but also you will get a nice clean and even burn throughout the use of your candle. You can use a wick trimmer to help you trim the wick, especially when it gets too low for scissors. Pinching the wick with your fingers is also an effective way of trimming your wick if you don’t have a wick trimmer.

2. THE FIRST BURN IS IMPORTANT

You want to ensure that the first layer has completely liquified on your first burn. Otherwise, you get wax that stays up the edges of the candles for every burn afterwards.

We recommend burning your candle for 3 hours initially to ensure that you don’t get tunnelling on the second burn.

3. FOUR HOURS BURN TIME

To minimise any damage or issues, we recommend only burning your candle for 4 hours at a time. Also, do not leave your candle unattended the whole time that it is burning.

4. BE SAFE

It’s critical to keep our candles away from children and pets. Plus, to avoid burning yourself don’t touch the candle until it has fully cooled. Make sure you’re putting them somewhere safe, away from draughts and things that are flammable and always 10cm apart from another candle.

5. DON’T BURN BELOW 5MM

Once your candle has got to 5mm from the bottom of the candle, it is time to stop burning it. However, you can always emptying out the wax and reuse the container, or buy another one of our luxury candles to enjoy.
