CANDLE CARE & BURNING GUIDE
 

AROMA JAR CANDLES

Refer to General Safety section above

Trim the wick ¼ inch and maintain this length throughout use. If the wick begins to emit smoke, extinguish it into the wax pool, trim it down and relight. Jar candles have a tendency to starve the flame of oxygen, so it's important to keep the wick trimmed to avoid soot from a dancing flame.

The best time to trim the wick is shortly after extinguishing it. Cutting the wick while it's still warm will prevent it from breaking off. Because all of our wicks are 100% cotton, they become fragile once used. This is a normal. If you choose to trim the wick once it's cool, you can easily trim it using your nails. Careful not to cut the wick too short; if this happens, expose fresh wick by lighting the candle and allowing enough wax to melt around the wick. Pour the wax out and relight. Burn for a minimum of 2 hrs afterwards. 

Burn for a minimum of 2 hrs to a maximum of 3 hrs at a time. Keep in mind the wick will need trimming during longer burn times.

Extinguish the wick by dipping it into the wax pool.  You can use either a fork or a pair of tweezers to do this. By dipping the wick into the wax, you are repriming your wick for the next burn and this also prevents re-lighting issues.

Do not attempt to move the jar candle when lit or when there is a wax pool. Liquid wax is hot!


Troubleshooting


Thick Pillar Walls

This may develop if the candle has bot been burning long enough each burning session. The recommended minimum burn time for our jar beeswax candles is 2 hrs. To correct thick pillar walls, heat a knife under hot water and carefully cut the walls down to the wax pool. Careful not to scratch against the glass as this could weaken or break the jar. Burn for a minimum of 2 hours afterwards.

Wick Won't Stay Lit

This can happen if the wick is cut too short. Expose fresh wick by lighting the candle and allowing enough wax to melt around the wick. Pour the wax out and relight. Burn for a minimum of 2 hrs afterwards. 

Wick Emitting Smoke

The wick is either too long and needs to be trimmed or the candle is exposed to a draft.
