candle care.

follow these simple rules to get the most out of your candle:

braid wick:

  • refrain from burning for more then 4hrs at a time. each time you burn your candle allow for the wax to become a complete liquid pool at the top to stop your candle from tunnelling. if you happen to experience tunnelling, once wax is hard, you can scoop out the wax along the edges of the jar until it is level.
  • trim your wick to 1/8" before each burn to encourage even, clean burning and to minimize soot omission and mushrooming.  
  • be mindful when placing your jar. keep away from children, pets, and items that may catch fire.
  • when 1/2" of the wick remains or if the wick moves off centre it is time to retire this candle & get a new one

wood wick:

  • refrain from burning for more then 4hrs at a time. each time you burn your candle allow for the wax to become a complete liquid pool at the top to stop your candle from tunnelling. if you happen to experience tunnelling, once wax is hard, you can scoop out the wax along the edges of the jar until it is level.
  • trim your wick to 1/8" before each burn to encourage even, clean burning and to minimize soot omission. if the wick is too long, the wax will not pull up the wick and the wick will extinguish.
  • ensure your candle is at room temperature before lighting as this helps prevent it from tunnelling.
  • if you are burning your candle for a long period of time and you notice the flame is getting too low you may need to break off burnt wood so the flame returns to regular height.
  • your melt pool will take a little longer then that of a braid wick, but if you find that it is taking longer that 2hrs you may need to tap off some of the burnt wood to encourage a bigger flame. 
  • be mindful when placing your jar. keep away from children, pets, and items that may catch fire.
