Caring for your soy candle and wood wick


We want to share with you our best tips on how to take care of your soy candles. Also, sometimes wood wicks need a little extra care. Here are our tips that will help you enjoy your soy candles longer.

LIGHTING THE WOOD WICK
When lighting your candle tilt it on an angle and let the flame travel across the length of the wick so the whole wick heats and burns evenly. It may take several attempts to get it lit and this is normal.

 

THE FIRST BURN IS THE MOST IMPORTANT
The first time you burn a soy candle, you have to let the entire top of the candle melt. This ensures that the candle will burn down cleanly from then on and avoids any ‘tunnel’ down the center of the candle.
MELT POOL FOR THE BEST SCENT THROW
A 1/4” melt pool is best for scent exposure. When the melt pool is too shallow the essential oils don't smell as much.
BE CAUTIOUS
Do not burn if the wax is 1/2” deep. Never leave a burning candle unattended, and keep your candle out of reach of children and pets.
