CANDLE CARE

Make sure your wick is trimmed to 1/4 inch before using.

When lighting your candle for the first time, allow the wax to melt all the way to the sides of the container. Depending on the container size, this should take 1 to 3 hours.

♥ Failure to do this will often cause "tunneling" which can shorten the life of your candle.

Soy wax does not burn as hot as other waxes, so they require a thicker wick. This means your wick will not burn up completely and will need to be trimmed regularly.

Aim to trim your wick to about 1/4 inch before relighting your candle.This will help ensure a long lasting candle, minimize wick soot, and remove any mushrooming of carbon residue on your wick.

♥ Extinguish your candle by dipping the wick into the melted wax and straighten. This will stop the wick smoking and will help with re-lighting the next time.

 

 

HOW TO USE YOUR MELTS

Place a cube in your warmer and turn your warmer on. Sit back and enjoy the scent!

Tip: Soy wax melts at a lower temperature, so to help your melts last longer use a lower wattage bulb in bulb type warmers or turn on a low setting for adjustable warmers.

Cleaning Tip #1: An easy way to clean out your warmer bowl is to turn off the warmer, let it cool for a couple of minutes and then drop in a couple of cotton balls. The cotton balls will absorb the wax and you can just throw them away!

Cleaning Tip #2: Another way to clean your warmer bowl is to let it cool completely, then place it in the freezer for 10 to 20 minutes. Remove from the freezer and your wax should pop right out!

 

 

TROUBLESHOOTING

Scent not lasting? -

     1. Check to make sure that your warmer is not sitting near any open windows or drafty areas.

     2. Make sure your warmer is not too hot. This will burn up your fragrance quicker.

    3. Clean your warmer bowl before putting in a new cube. Adding a new cube into used wax will dilute your scent.

    4. Is your room large and open? You may need more than one warmer with the same scent to fill the whole area.

    5. You may be becoming "nose blind" to the scent. Try leaving the area for a couple of hours or switching to a different scent for a few days. Our noses become accustomed to smells over time. 

Candle producing soot or smoke?

     1. Make sure to trim the wick to 1/4 inch before every use.

     2. Check for any drafts or open windows. You can tell if the candle is sitting in a drafty area if the flame is jumping or "dancing" when lit.

     3. When you light your candle the first time, make sure to let it burn until it creates a melt pool that reaches all side of the container evenly.
