CANDLE CARE TIPS
WoodWick® candles can occasionally display different burning characteristics than other candles.
Here are a few simple steps to enjoy the best burn every time.
Allow wax to pool
You will experience the best burn results when the candle remains lit for 3-4 hours. For the Ellipse candles with Hearthwick® Flame, light the wick on one end and allow the flame to flow naturally across the wick.
Make sure that the wax melts to the edge of the candle before extinguishing it – this may take between 30 to 60 minutes. Allowing the wax to pool will discourage ‘tunnelling’ or leaving wax on the sides of the vessel.
The flame height may vary at times and occasionally even appear to self-extinguish, but this is normal. Even if you are experiencing a ‘low’ flame, it will continue to heat and the flame height should return.
Keep the candle within sight and away from drafts
Always place the candle on a flat, heat-resistant surface, and make
sure to keep the candle away from children, pets, flammable materials and other heat sources.
Never move or handle the candle while it’s burning or while the wax is hot
To be safe, only move your candle once the flame is extinguished and the wax has completely cooled.
Know when to 'trim' the wick
The wick should be trimmed before each use. To ensure your candle burns clean and does not blacken the glass jar ensure you pinch off the burnt part of your wick with your fingers once it’s cooled down and the candle has solidified.
Know when to say goodbye
When there is approximately 6mm of wax remaining, it is time to stop using your candle. Extinguish the candle when 6mm of wax remains and recycle
it according to your local recycling centre’s guidance or use the empty glass jars in your next crafty #Upcycle project.
