Candle Care

General Info

Additional information how to care for your candle and maximise the durability of your candle.
-    When you light your candle for the 1st time burn the candle 1 hour for every 2cm in diameter to establish a burn pool and to prevent future tunnelling.  Tunnelling occurs when the candle burns straight down the middle and not evenly out to the edges. This could result in drowning of the wick.
-    Subsequent burns should also be long enough to keep the size of the burn pool.

When burning Multi-wick candles, divide the diameter of the candle by quantity of wicks, eg 12 cm diameter divide by 3 wicks = 4 hours first burn time to establish the burn pools and prevent tunnelling.
Never burn your candle 1,5cm from the bottom. Extinguish the candle at this stage to prevent glass receptacles from cracking.
