Candle Tips and Tricks


- Candles burn best when the wick is kept centered and trimmed to ¼” or less. We use a coreless wick made from cotton and paper filaments. Many wicks have a thin zinc wire running through the center to help keep them stiff. Vapors from burning metal may not be good for you, so we use coreless wicks. If a large melt pool develops, the wick may occasionally lean over. If this happens, simply blow out the candle, re-center the wick, and allow to cool. The candle will then be as good as new!

 

- Remember that candles are made of wax. The melt point on my candles is approximately 130 degrees. Any excessive heat and melting that occurs during shipping will not affect the burning or great fragrance of the candle, but it may have some effect on the appearance.

 

-Please be safe and never leave burning candles unattended. The glass container may become hot while the candle is burning. Take appropriate precautions to prevent damage to the surface that the candle is sitting on.
