Waxaroma's Essential Tips & Tricks
We have put together a list to help you get the best use from your candle and ensure its long lasting.
The First Burn
When lighting your candle for the first time, burn the candle for 2-4 hours until the wax melts all the way across the entire candle.
This will prevent tunneling and will create an even burn for the duration of the use of the candle. Fed up of all the wax that gets left in a candle! Using this tip that will prevent that for life, and you will get a full clean burn from your candle.
Trim Your Wicks
We recommend you trim your wick each time before lighting your candle. The wick always needs to be around 1/4 of an inch long.
Keeping your wick trimmed will ensure mushrooming which can result in soot around your candle jar. It will also ensure your flame is never too big.
You can use scissors for this, or wick trimmers. We have a great candle care kit in our accessory section.
When extinguishing your candle, try to not blow it out. This stop the wax splattering and safer for yourself. Use a snuffer to safely put out your candle.
Always store your candles in a cool, dark and dry place.
Candles and wax melts should always be used and handled carefully. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
Burn candles out of the reach of children and pets. Soy wax however is a safer alternative around your family. Do not burn candles on or near anything that can catch fire.
