How to care for your scented soy candle

Setting the burn memory / the first burn

The first burn of your scented soy candle sets the burn memory.  Allow at least 4 hours for this & do not extinguish flame until the wax has melted to the edge of the glass. Note: the time this will take is dependent on the temperature of the room you are burning the candle in, a hot room will achieve this faster than a cold room

After the first burn

After the first burn – burn your scented soy candle for a minimum of one hour, but no longer than 3 hours at a time – this ensures your candle will always burn to edge of glass and then minimises the chance of flooding the wick

If your scented soy candle starts to burn unevenly

If your scented soy candle starts to burn unevenly, this is most likely from a draught. Turn the candle to even up the burn and then move to a different location as draughts will speed up the burn time

Re-centre the Wick

After each burn, before the wax has set, re-centre the wick – this will help ensure an even burn

Trim the wick

Trim the wick of your scented soy candle to 5mm once the candle is cold and remove any debris, as this can cause smoke

Scented soy candle burning safety instructions

Never leave a burning scented candle unattended

Keep candles away from children, pets and furnishings

Stop burning your scented candle once it is 1.5cm from the base of the glass – failure to do so can result in the glass exploding

Do not place / burn your scented candle on a heated surface (i.E. Heater/fire), this will speed up the burn time & could cause bottom of the candle glass to overheat & potentially explode

If burning more than one scented candle at a time leave at least 10cm between candles
