Candle Care & Tips

Keep out of direct sun

To avoid changing the wax colour. But if it does change, it will not change how the candle burns or it's scent.

Trim your wick before every burn

This helps to avoid burning with a very large flame and mushrooming. It ensures an even and safe burn.

Allow melt pool to reach the edge of the container

Since candle wax has a memory, it's important to do this on the first burn to avoid tunneling.

Craters and bumpy surfaces

Are a characteristic of soy wax but they do not effect how the candle burns.

Avoid burning more than 4 hours at a time

This will cause the wick to get too big and will result in the wax burning to quickly.
