Candle Burning Tips
- To ensure your candle burns cleanly across the top, burn it one hour for each inch until the wax pool extends from edge to edge of the container. This prevents uneven burn of the candle. Since beeswax are known to have a higher melting point and a hotter flame as compared to other waxes, it allows for complete combustion of the wax and the wick for an even burn. Producing a slow, clean burn that is virtually smoke and soot free. It needs longer time for the wax to melt to the edge of the container.
- Avoid holding onto or move the candle container while it is still burning and when the wax is liquid.
- Never leave a burning candle unattended. It is recommended to burn candle for a maximum of 3 hours. Otherwise, carbon collects on the wick and as a result, causes the wick to become unstable. The flame becomes larger causing your candle to release more smoke into the air.
- Use a metal tool to straighten a curled or tilted wick to the opposite direction to correct uneven burning.
- Extinguish the candle by pushing the wick into the melted wax pool with a metal tool preventing afterglow and smoke. (you wouldn’t want the subtle scent of the candles to be overpowered by the smell of the smoke when you extinguish the candle). Alternatively you may also use a snuffer to extinguish your candles properly. (However, you may encounter some slight smoke using this method).
- Never extinguish candles with water.
