Caring for your Candle
TRIM YOUR WICK
Before each burn, always ensure that your wick is trimmed to 1/4 inches. This can be done with scissors, wick trimmers, or with your fingers (if candle has already been burned) by pinching off the excess burnt wick.
This minimizes the chance of high flames and soot (which is a result of high flames/black smoke).
BURN FOR ONLY 2-4 HOURS AT A TIME
This allows the candle to burn evenly across to avoid tunnelling. On the first light, do not extinguish until the wax has fully melted across the vessel.
KEEP CANDLE CLEAN
Our candles come with a laminated dust cover to ensure that no dirt and debris fall into the candle while not in use. You should always keep this cover on the candle if not burning, especially if left alone for awhile.
This is to ensure that the burning isn't altered (from debris clogging the wick) and to ensure that nothing can catch on fire during burn.
DO NOT MOVE WHILE LIT + KEEP AWAY FROM DRAFTS
Moving a candle while lit or placing it under a draft encourages tunnelling, smoking, and even a weaker scent throw. Place your candle in a safe place away drafts and especially from pets and children. Always burn on an even, heat resistance surface as well.
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!
When there is approximately only 1/2" of wax left, discontinue use for your safety. However, that's not the end of your candle quite yet! Our vessels make the perfect, aesthetically pleasing addition to any home or office once repurposed.
To get rid of wax, you can (1) pour boiling water into the vessel or (2) freeze for 1-2 hours.
BOILING METHOD - pour boiling water into the vessel and wait until the wax fully melts and floats to the top. You can pour out the contents while everything is melted or you can wait for the water to cool and pop the excess wax into your wax melter to extend the life of your candle a little longer. After doing either, simply wash with soap and warm water, dry, and reuse!
FREEZING METHOD - pop your vessel into the freezer for 1-2 hours. Take out, and using a fork or a knife, poke at the edges of the wax until you're able to pop it out. If you'd like to use the remaining wax, wait until it cools back down to room temperature before popping onto your wax melter.
What can you use the vessel for?
Planting/repotting a new plant
Coffee and tea storage
Toiletries (hair ties, q-tips, bobby pins, etc)
Last but not least... have fun! A candle is more than just an "air freshener" - it's a whole experience meant to be treasured and enjoyed.
