Caring For Your Candle
We love using natural Soy Wax for our candles - because it is clean burning, sustainable and holds fragrance until the end of the candles usage.
Here are a few hints and tips, to ensure the longevity of your candle.
- For the first use; make sure you burn your candle for a good 2-3 hours, to ensure you have an even melt pool on the surface. This prevents tunneling.
- Thereafter; please ensure you Trim Your Wick to around 5mm before lighting your candle. This will control the size of your flame, and prevent your candle from burning too quickly, and keeps your container from overheating.
Please take note that with some candles, depending on the fragrance oil used, there may be some discolouration over time. This is purely cosmetic, and will not affect the performance of your candle.
Towards the end of your candle use, you may notice some soot marks on the inside of your container - this is only from the candle wick if it hasn't been trimmed, it easily wipes off clean.
"Frosting" - the cloudy appearance on the candle surface, this is a natural characteristic of soy wax. This doesn't affect the performance of your candle at all.
"Wet Spots" - the look of spaces between the glass and candle wax - within the candle industry, this is called 'Wet spots' and gives the appearance that the wax seems stuck to the glass. This is purely caused by changes in temperature that either expands or contracts the soy wax inside. Once again, is a perfectly normal characteristic of soy wax, and in no way affects the burning of the candle.
