Create a burn Memory
When lighting a soy candle for the first time,
allow the wax to melt all the way to the sides of the container.
This will give you maximum fragrance and an even burn. If you do not allow the wax to pool on the first burn you may get wax remaining along the sides of your container.
Trim the Wick
Always trim your wick to about 6-8mm before you re-light your candle. This will ensure a long lasting candle, minimise soot and remove any mushrooming of the wick left from the previous burn. But be sure not to over trim your wick as you may not be able to re-light your candle.
If you do not trim the wick regularly, if the candle is in a draft or is left to burn too long you may get a “mushroom” of carbon on the end of the wick. This may cause some soot to collect on the inside of the container.
Do Not Blow Out
Extinguish your candle by dipping the wick into the melted wax and straighten.
This will stop the wick smoking and will help with re- lighting the next time. It is recommended you do not burn your candle for more than 4hrs at a time.
Please remember the candles are hand poured, not massed produced. Although all effort is made to ensure consistency, every candle will be different. The top of your candle may also appear slightly uneven, this is also a sign of natural soy wax being hand poured.
