Candle Care

To get the most out of The Beauty of Hope soy candles, please read our candle care instructions.

FIRST BURN

The first time you burn your candle, make sure to burn for long enough that the wax melts to the edges of the glass. This is called a ‘memory burn’. This creates a candle memory and prevents tunneling on future burns ensuring you get the most out of your candle. On all subsequent burns make sure you burn your candle long enough that it melts to the edge of the container.

TRIM YOUR WICK

Before relighting your candle, ensure it has cooled and hardened completely, then trim the little ball from the end of your wick. (We recommend using wick trimmers) Trim your wick to approximately ¼ inch prior to re-lighting. This will prevent your candle from smoking and minimize soot forming on your container. Extinguish the candle if it begins to smoke, if the flame flickers repeatedly or becomes too high. Trim your wick and re-light.

EXTINGUISHING YOUR CANDLE

Do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time, as this can cause the container to get too hot and possibly crack. It will also help to maximize the life of your candle.

WARNINGS

Keep it out of reach of small hands and paws, do not attempt to move candle while in use, always burn on a flat surface and never leave unattended.

Burn soy candle in a draft free area and clear of flammable objects.

Keep out of direct sunlight, this prevents damage and discoloration to the wax.

If you are left with a black sooty substance at the rim of your votive, simply wipe it away with a damp cloth and ensure you keep your wick trimmed.

RECYCLE YOUR JARS

Soy wax is also easy to remove from materials and surfaces. Which means that once you have finished with your candle, you can simply wash out with warm soapy water, and re-use as a vase, cocktail tumbler or pen holder for your desk!
