Basic Candle Care

Summarised Candle Care:

1.) Burn min 2 hrs on candle’s first light to avoid a memory ring.

2.) Observe safety precautions, only burn candles within sight at all times.

3.) To avoid overheating, don’t burn candles for more than 4 hrs at a time.

4.) Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4” before relighting. Untrimmed wicks lead to popping, smoking, and soot. This is how candles end up looking unattractive and become dangerous.

5.) Place the candle on a temperature safe or heat resistant surface to avoid damage. Suggestion: Place something underneath your candle to protect the surface beneath it - like a coaster or tray.

6.) Extinguish the flame by gently covering the lid and open to let the smoke exhaust, or best to use a snuffer.


1. First burn + memory rings

❒  Soy wax has memory! For the first light, allow 2-3 hours for the candle to burn while attended.

❒  If the first light is not burned for suggested hours to melt from all edges of the container, it will create a "memory ring" and it will continue to tunnel for the life of the candle.

❒  Extinguish the flame by gently covering the lid & open to let the smoke exhaust, or best to use snuffer.

2. well maintained wicks

It helps the candle to burn more cleanly and efficiently if you have a well maintained wicks.

Safety when wick trimming:

❒  Extinguish the flame as it shouldn't be lighting while being trimmed;

❒  Let the candle come to room temperature;

❒  And trim the wick before relighting. 

3. perfect wood wick trim

❒  Trimmed wick length should be 1/4". 

❒  Use Wick Scissors / Nail Clippers to cut properly. 

❒  Ensure proper wick length. If the the wick was cut too short, it will caused the candle to burn improperly.

❒  Discard the remnant wick before lighting.

4. max 4 hours per burning time

Candles are recommended to burn only 4 hours at a time, should be extinguished, and allow to cool down for two hours, then trimmed before relighting. Our 180ml candle total burning time lasts for 40-45 hours.

5. for safety care

❒  Keep out of reach of children & pets.

❒  Keep away from flammable objects.

❒  Burn on a heat resistance surface.

❒  Never leave a burning candle unattended.
