Instructions for Use
Wooden wicks are great, they burn cleanly and with a soothing crackling sound but they are a different beast to regular ones and require a bit more attention. Here are some simple steps to help:
- Before lighting the candle pinch off the excess burned black with with your fingers, this will give you a better flame. If the flame appears to slow down and not burn very well, blow the candle out, pinch the wick and relight.
- Keep an eye on the wick, if it seems too long (longer than 5mm) then blow it out, allow to cool, pinch off as above and relight.
- Our candles work best when given time to get a decent wax melt pool - this is as important a source of scent throw as the flame - if you only burn for a short time then the wick may 'tunnel' through the wax.
And some standard warnings that we have to give - Never leave a burning candle unattended - Keep clear of flammable materials - burn on a level, stable surface away from draughts - the container will get hot when the candle is lit. Never move a burning candle.
