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.
