Caring for your candle
The First Burn
Ahhhhh a new candle, there's nothing quite like lighting it up for the first time, but! Performing the first burn correctly is cruicial to the performance of your candle.
Allow the wax to melt all the way to the edge of the jar creating a nice even melt pool before snuffing the flame. This can usually take between 1 - 2 hours for a full melt pool to occur.
We recommend burning your candle for 2 - 3 hours on it's first burn to allow the candle to release its full potential of that wonderful fragrance and create a beautiful flow on effect for your next burn.
Trim your wick!
Your candle will arrive to you with a pre-trimmed wick by us.
Please ensure you trim your wick in between burns to maintain a healthy flame and even burn. If your wick is too long you may find it will begin to mushroom which is completely normal, however will cause your candle to burn faster.
Mushrooming is caused by excess carbon build up.
Keep your wick trimmed to approx 1/4 inch.
Don't Let Your Candle Tunnell
There is nothing worse than a candle that tunnels. To best avoid tunnelling follow the steps laid out in the "first burn" tab. Most candle tunnelling issues happen when the first burn isn't done properly.
Always allow your candle to melt to the edge of the jar each time before snuffing the flame.
