Basic Candle Care
A great candle experience begins with proper candle care and maintenance. Here are some important burning tips for enjoying your sholin Candle.
Always ensure the wick is trimmed to about 5mm (but not less) and check regularly. If there is any sign of smoke from the flame, the wick is too long and the burn-time will be reduced.
The 1cm Rule: When there is approximately 1cm of wax remaining at the bottom of your candle, we recommend this is where you should discontinue its use.
Always ensure that the candle is burnt for sufficient time to allow the pool of wax to reach the sides of the container. This will mean the draw-down of wax will be even across the diameter of the container and no wax will be unused and wasted.
Always burn candles well away from drafts, other heat sources, and anything flammable. Make sure burning candles are out of reach of children and pets. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
When the candle is extinguished, always replace the lid to retain fragrance.
