How to care for my candle...

What do I do with my candle wick?

If you are going to burn your candle, trim your wick down to 1/4 inch. This will help the candle burn clean and more evenly. You should do this every time you light the candle. 

 

How to burn a candle

You should burn your candle for 2-3 hours at a time, but never longer then 4 hours. Also, make sure you never light a candle if you’re feeling sleepy or getting too snuggled up on the sofa, that won’t be good for the candle or safe for you. 

 

The first burn - candle memory 

Your candle has a memory, if you only burn it for an hour for the first burn, it will start to pool the next time you light it and won’t burn evenly. For an even burn away, make sure you’ve burnt it for at least 2 hours, so it has the even burn.

 

Avoid direct sunlight

Place your candles out of direct sunlight or harsh indoor lighting, such as spotlights as the bright lights can melt and discolour the wax. 

 

How to clean a candle 

You can remove dust and fingerprints from a candle by gently rubbing the surface with a soft cloth, you can either use a dry cloth or slightly damp cloth. 

 

Frosting on a soy wax candle

Frosting is completely normal on soy candles, you can simply wipe it off with a dry cloth, and if that doesn't work, you can slightly damp the cloth with warm water and wipe away.
