Soy Candle Burning Safety Tips
Candle Burning Safety Tips:
●Always place candle on a flat surface when burning.
●The first time you light the candle, trim wick to 1/4” in length and allow wax to melt all the way to the sides of the container. Depending on the container size, this could take about 3 hours. Failure to do this can limit the life of your new soy candle.
●Trim wick to 1/4” in length each time you light your candle and again if needed at 3 hour intervals. This will ensure a long lasting candle, maximize scent release, minimize sooting and remove any mushrooming on the end of the wick.
●Extinguish your candle by dipping the wick into the melted wax and straighten back up. This will help keep the wick from smoking and help when re-lighting.
●Never leave a burning candle unattended or near combustible materials.
●Keep away from drafts, open windows or fans.
●Keep away from children.
●Burn no longer than 4 hours at a time. Discard candle when there is 1/4” of wax left in the bottom of the container. The jar can be reused by removing excess wax.
●Soy is all natural and will have a lighter scent throw than a manufactured paraffin candle.
