Illuminate with Care
To make the most of these natural beauties, let's explore the art of burning and caring for your beeswax candles.
TRIM THE WICK
Before each burn, trim the wick to about 6mm (¼ inch). This simple step prevents excessive flickering and maintains a steady, radiant flame.
You can use a small pair of sharp scissors or opt for wick trimmers, specially crafted for this purpose, to ensure a precise cut every time.
This attention to detail ensures that your beeswax candle burns cleanly and beautifully, enhancing the ambiance of your space.
EMBRACE THE GENTLE FLAME
When lighting your beeswax candle, use a long gas lighter, an electronic candle lighter or a long matchstick. This helps prevent accidental burns and ensures a good start.
SET THE STAGE
Position your candle on a flat, heat-resistant surface away from drafts. This prevents uneven burning and guarantees a longer, more enjoyable experience.
THE ART OF PATIENCE
Allow your beeswax candle to burn for at least two hours during each use. This ensures a full melt pool and helps prevent tunneling, maximising the candle's lifespan.
SNUFF, DON'T BLOW
Beeswax candles typically produce minimal to no soot when extinguished by blowing. This is one of the benefits of using beeswax candles, as they tend to burn cleanly compared to other types of candles.
However, for best results and to further minimise any potential soot, it's recommended to use a snuffer to gently extinguish the flame. This helps maintain the cleanliness of the burn and preserves the candle's integrity over time.
PRESERVE AND REPURPOSE
Once your candle has completed its journey, consider repurposing its container. Beeswax candle vessels hold the potential for creative reuse, from planters, money jars to stationery organisers.
STORE BEESWAX CANDLES WITH CARE
Protect your unburned beeswax candles from dust and debris by covering them with a clean cloth or placing them in a protective bag or container.
