CANDLE CARE AND BURNING INSTRUCTIONS

Important tips on candle care so you can enjoy your candle for a long time.

You can also find burning instructions and the labelling of candles in this post.



We recommend following the tips to achieve the maximum burning time and to ensure that the candle burns evenly. Please also note the safety labelling of candles.



1. Place the candle in a suitable, fireproof candle holder or on a suitable, fireproof base.


2. The candle will liquefy and may drip.

Pay attention when choosing the stand/candle holder. Not every candle is suitable for placing in a glass container/holder as the wax will shrink. We offer scented candles in glass.

It may be necessary to pour off liquid wax due to the amount of wax and the capacity of the glass.


Score the edge of the candle to allow excess wax to drain off if necessary.


Cut off the edge of the candle evenly with a sharp knife if a high edge remains.


Do not place on a sensitive surface.



3. Make sure that the candle is stable and straight. (Use adhesive wax buttons.)

A crooked candle may drip and smoke.



4. Wick must be kept clean and short (not longer than 1 cm). A long wick causes a large flame and the candle burns down faster.

Shorten the wick if necessary before lighting the candle.


Shorten the wick regularly so it's never longer than 1 cm.


Make sure the wick is upright. Also straighten up the wick after each use of the candle.


If the candle smokes or drips, the wick may be too long. Simply cut off a piece of wick.

If the candle has several wicks, keep attention to the length of the wicks and the possible draught and check it.



5. Make sure there is a minimum distance of 10 cm between burning candles.

Candles that are too close to each other heat each other up, which can cause the candle to drip.



6. When lighting the candle for the first time, do not extinguish the candle until the surface has become fully liquid.

This can take from a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the size/capacity of the candle. Do not extinguish the candle until the surface has completely liquefied.


Otherwise a tunnel may form.



7. Do not let the candle burn for more than 4 hours at a time. Do not exceed the maximum burning time as this may negatively affect the scent quality.



8. Do not let the candle burn down to the last remaining wax.

An edge of wax about 1 cm high on the bottom of the glass can prevent overheating.


When there is only 5 mm of wax left, do not light the candle again, otherwise it may overheat and the container/glass may shatter.



9. Do not place the candle in a draught.

Candle in the draught may drip and smoke and burn on only one side.



10. Do not place the candle in the sun, expose it to high temperatures or UV rays (if possible, do not place it on a window sill or similar or leave it in a hot car!)

Due to the high temperatures and radiation, the candle may melt, drip and discolour.



11. Burn out of reach of children and pets.



12. Never leave a candle unattended.



13. Never place a candle near curtains or any flammable objects/sources.


14. Do not light a candle near other heat sources (television, radiator, fireplace, etc.).


15. Never move a lit candle or touch the container as it may be hot.


16. Use a candle snuffer to extinguish the candle.


17. Do not leave any residue in the wax.


18. Do not place on a bookshelf or in closed containers.
