Burning Instructions

To get the most out of your beeswax candles, please follow the burning instructions carefylly, become a candle master.

As a general rule, light or relight your candle with the wick trimmed to ¼ inch. Always put your candle on a base for safety. Our unique plant fibre wick may take a few seconds to catch. Hold the candle on an angle for best results. Following your first burning, the wick may sputter as you light it. This is normal, but please be careful. Before lighting your candle, please remove the decorative wrap. For best burning results, try to maintain the wick at about a ¼ inch height.

While enjoying your candlelight, a pool of liquid wax will move toward the edge of the candle, then gently push or hug the walls inward to create as smaller pool, shorter flame and extended burn time. This will take a bit of practice, some patience and lots of care. Remember, the wax is very hot.

The flame of your candle will "tell" you when it requires maintenance: It will dance or flicker, and may smoke slightly ( this is the wick burning). Should this occur, do one of two things: hug the sides first, if this is not sufficient, then extinguish the candle then trim the wick. It is a good idea to have some paper towel ready to wipe the wax off the scissors. If hugging the walls is insufficient, then trimming the wick is a must.

Never allow the pool of wax to go beyond ¼ inch from the edge of the candle: it could leak thru the side, thereby shortening the life of the candle. If so, immediately extinguish the flame and allow the candle to harden before relighting.

The key to maximizing the burn time of your candle is to maintain a level top all around. To achieve this, allow the pool to ¼ inch from the edge every 2nd burning.

By following these instructions, you will use the entire candle down to a ½ inch puck. It can also be used, just let us know and we will fill you in on the details.

Because of our unique plant fibre wick, you should never blow out your candle. Instead use a snuffer or, better yet, "dunk" or push over the wick into the pool of wax. For this use a toothpick, paper clip, pencil, or what we have found works well is a chop–stick and some paper towel to wipe the wax off. You are a candle master - Enjoy!
