When lighting your candle, it's important to do so in a well-ventilated room and away from any drafts or fans. This will prevent sooting, which can cause black marks on the vessel, and ensure the candle burns evenly and smoothly.
It is recommended to burn regular-sized candles for about one and a half to two hours at a time or until the top of the candle has completely melted. If burned for a shorter duration, the candle may create a 'tunnel' of wax buildup around the vessel's sides. On the other hand, burning for over four hours can cause the wick to move or slant.
To ensure safety, it is crucial. to keep a watchful eye on your burning candle and extinguish it once the wax level reaches 10mm from the bottom. When the wax is low, be sure to closely monitor the candle at all times.
Ensure that the wax pool remains free of any wick trimmings or matches at all times. Neglecting to do so will result in debris accumulating in the wax, which can act as a secondary wick and cause your candle to burn at a faster rate..
It is crucial to immediately snuff out any flames and ensure that the wick is centred and straightened after extinguishing. Failure to do so may cause the wick to shift or slant, leading to potential damage. In the event that the wick comes too close to the vessel wall, it is imperative to extinguish the flame and straighten the wick to avoid the vessel cracking.
To prevent high flames, smoking, or sooting, it is imperative that the wick be trimmed to 5mm once the wax has set. Long or crooked wicks should be taken care of immediately. Remember, your safety is our top priority, and we expect you to take all necessary precautions to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
