How to Burn your Soy Candle

Burning Instructions

Please note, every candle scent burns differently. Please familiarise yourself with the instructions enclosed with each candle.

On your first light please:

  • Do not trim the wick, your candle is ready to light
  • Burn for 3 to 4 hours until candle liquid has reached the edge of the container. This is to set the memory of the wax to get maximum use out of your candle.
  • Remove any foreign materials such as flowers

Upon each light after first please:

Make sure your wick does not have a mushroom tip before lighting and if so, remove the tip of the wick so only .5 of a cm remains. Do not burn for more than 4 hours at a time. After the first burn, always keep your wick trimmed to .5 of a cm to avoid blackening of glass or smoking.
