Candle Care & Burning Tips
Wick Care & Trimming
It’s important to trim your wooden wick before you burn your candle for the first time. While it might seem like a longer wick will achieve a better first burn, it’s actually the opposite. When there is too much wood between the flame and the wax, your candle might not burn strong enough or the wick might self extinguish. Use a pair of wick trimmers or a set of nail clippers to trim the wick to ¼” to ⅛” above the wax. This also applies to cotton wicks.
Continue to maintain and trim your wooden wick candle between burns by gently removing the excess burned wooden tips to ensure a clean and long lasting burn. Make sure your candle is completely cool before handling it and always trim your wicks when your candles are cool to avoid any debris falling into the wax. Keeping a tidy wick will also prevent your candle from burning with an extremely high flame which leads to excess soot and smoke on the inside of the glass.
Candle Burning Tips
Proper candle care will help you achieve a long, clean and even burn,maximizing the hours you can enjoy from your candle. Burn your candle for a minimum of 2 - 3 hours the first time you light it. This helps achieve an even burn and prevents the candle from tunneling or forming a wax pool only in the center. It may take several longer burns to achieve a perfectly even burn.
Do not burn your candle for more than 5 hours at a time otherwise the flame can become too large and is more likely to cause soot to form inside the jar. You can wipe away excess soot from candle jars after they are completely cool with a little coconut oil and a paper towel if desired.
Do not burn your candle in a drafty room, near a fan or air conditioning unit. The breeze can cause an uneven burn or extinguish the flame.
Natural Soy Wax
Stable Style candles are made with natural soy wax, free from preservatives and dyes. Because of this, you might occasionally notice a slight yellow hue on your candles over time or when you unbox them. This happens when oxygen oxidizes with the wax and fragrance. Certain fragrances, including vanilla, citrus and floral scents tend to yellow more than others. This does not impact the scent, strength of the candle, or burn quality. Candles may also yellow over time if they are kept in direct sunlight.
Friendly reminder, do not leave your candle burning unattended and be careful around pets and children.
Place your candle on a heat safe surface when burning and do not move the candle when it is lit. The jar could be extremely hot. Dropping a lit candle could cause hot wax burns or start a fire.
Never use water or other liquids to extinguish your candle. Gently blow out the candle or use a snuffer to suffocate the flame.
Enjoy your Stable Style candle safely.
