Soy Candle Burning Tips
to get the most from your candle
MAKE THE FIRST BURN COUNT
Soy wax has a memory and should be allowed to achieve a full melt pool on it's very first burn. If it is extinguished prior to allowing a full melt pool, all subsequent melt pools will not go past the first one and will tunnel into the center of your candle.
To create a full melt pool, burn the candle for a minimum of one hour for every inch of it's diameter. (Example: mason jars have a 3" diameter. Burn for three hours the first time).
All future burns, no matter how long it is lit, should follow the first one's path and melt fully to the sides of your container. This also allows for a strong and long lasting scent throughout the life of your candle.
APPROXIMATE BURN TIMES
with proper wick trimming to 1/4" before each re-lighting
Soy Jar/Tin Candles
5 oz: 40-45 hours
8 oz: 64-72 hours
12 oz: 96-108 hours
16 oz: 128-144 hours
Candle burning times will vary slightly depending on the placement of your candle. Drafty areas will affect candle burning times as candles will burn slightly quicker.
The maximum recommended burn time is 4 hours per burn. Burning longer than the recommended time can be dangerous, especially when combined with improper wick trimming. Although we use heat-safe glass, an improperly trimmed wick can create a high flame and temperature forming a deep melt pool and fatigue the glass causing a break.
Please keep burning soy candles away from children, pets and flammable materials. Never leave burning candles unattended.
