Anti-bug citronella soy wax candle
The first time you burn your handmade soy wax candle, ensure the melt pool reaches the edge of the container before extinguishing. This is to prevent tunnelling.
Avoid burning for more than 4 hours.
Trim the wick to 1cm before relighting.
If the flame is small or weak, extinguish the candle, pour away the excess wax, trim the wick and relight.
Do not burn the candle down right to the very bottom of the container. Stop burning when 1cm of wax is remaining at the bottom.
Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn’t burning properly. Cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting.
Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep.
Be sure the candle is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.
Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning and avoid flame flare-ups. It will also prevent items blowing into the flame and catching fire.
