MOST IMPORTANTLY, PROPER CANDLE CARE
The first burn is the most important—the candle wax must pool to the edge on the initial burn. Wax has a memory, meaning that if your candle doesn't burn to the edges, it will begin to tunnel and won't burn evenly the next time. Keeping the candle away from airstreams like open AC vents, windows, or fans is crucial.
In the perfect scenario, a person would burn their candles for four hours each time and not more than once every 24 hours to prolong the life of that candle. Burning for more than four hours can cause the wick to form a mushroom, or carbon deposit, on the tip and the more carbon, the more soot and smoke.
A melt pool is where the fragrant aroma is released. If you cannot smell the aroma, it means that the candle is too small for the area. Consider placing a couple candles in one room to increase its aromatic benefit.
Your soy candle is dye free. This does not mean that soy remains white. Dependent upon the fragrance, soy can take on different hues of white, cream and sometimes yellow. Rest assured that this is due to the fragrance used.
Keep the wick trimmed to 1/8 inch at all times. When wick trimming, you should always extinguish the flame, let the candle come to room temperature, and trim the wick to 1/8 of inch before relighting.
Always burn candles well away from drafts, other heat sources, and anything flammable. Make sure burning candles are out of reach of children and pets. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
It may also look frosted. These ‘flaws’ are normal and it is a clear indication that you have purchased a 100% all natural soy candle.
The candle wax and fragrance oils we use in our candles are sensitive to both temperature and light, so please be careful when storing candles for an extended period of time. If you store your candle, be sure it is in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or intense light. Keeping it in a dark place like a cupboard or box will protect it from fading and discoloration.
CANDLE BURN TIMES
Burn times will always vary depending on the placement of your candle. Drafty areas will burn slightly quicker. Burn times will also vary depending on the height of your wick. The longer the wick, the quicker the candle will burn. You can extend your candles burn time by burning the candles long enough to allow the wax pool to reach the edge.
