Candle Care Instructions
To safely burn and extend the life of your soy candle, please follow these instructions below.
- Trim the wick to 1/4 inch before each use. This helps prevent tunneling, flame flickering, and uneven burning.
- On the first burn, make sure the wax melts all the way to the edges.
- Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings and debris.
- Place the candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface to help prevent possible heat damage to counters and table surfaces.
- Keep candle away from drafts, vents, and flammable objects.
- Burn no longer than 4 hours at a time.
- Never leave a burning candle unattended, even while leaving the room, and especially when sleeping.
- Never touch or move a burning candle.
- Don’t burn a candle all the way down. Stop burning a candle when there is 1/2 inch of wax left in the jar.
- Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
Natural Wax Characteristics
Natural waxes may have visual characteristics beyond our control. Soy wax in particular has a lower melting point and may change form and appearance over time, especially when exposed to fluctuating temperatures. If exposed to cooler temperatures, the wax may shrink in some areas and pull away from the jar causing what is called "wet spots". When exposed to fluctuating heat changes, frosting and discoloration may also occur due to the wax quickly trying to get back to its natural state.
If these things happen to your candle do not worry! It is only aesthetic and does not affect the quality of your candle burn. It is also proof that the wax comes from a quality natural source! There isn't a way to fully avoid this, but keeping your candle out of direct sunlight and stored at room temperature may help.
