Candle Care

Hey my candle lovers!

Many of us assume that candles can just be lit, blown out and lit again whenever. However I am going to tell you how to get the most out of your candles, help them last longer and avoid our worst nightmare TUNNELLING! 

Candle Care Steps:

First step: When you first light your candle, allow it to burn for a minimum of 2 hours. This will allow your candle to have a full wax pool and avoid tunnelling.

*Tunnelling is when there are wax walls around your candle due to it not fully burning. 

Second step: I would advise to only burn your candle for a maximum of 4 hours at a time. As Scents By Artemis candles are made from natural ingredients, they are toxin free and smoke free. However if you burn your candle for longer than four hours as recommended you may notice that the wax pool becomes large resulting in a heated jar, larger fire and smoke. Therefore if you can, burn your candle for 2-4 hours at a time. 

Third step: Between each burn ensure that you trim the wick. this can be done by breaking off the top of the wick with the tip of your fingers, please ensure you don't cut the wick as you could cut it a bit too short. The reason it is important to break off the tip of the wick between each burn is so that you avoid any black soot from the burnt wood wick and the wick from re-lighting.
