Handcrafted Beeswax Candles

Caring For Your Candles

Our candles burn slowly and have a calming scent that can only be found with pure beeswax. By giving your candles proper care and attention, you can ensure that you’re getting the most out of them.

By following a few simple steps, you can keep your candles glowing bright, and your house smelling fresh.

Remember: Never leave a lit candle unattended! Also keep out of reach from children and pets.

Wick Length

Before lighting candles 2” and larger in diameter, trim and maintain wick at ¼”. If the candle wick starts to flicker, the wick may be too long. Extinguish and trim wick to ¼” and then relight.

Tunnelling

Avoid tunneling on 3”+ wide candles by burning for at least 3 hours at a time. As the candle melts, a pool of wax will form. Gently push candle walls inward as they warm, toward the flame and trim candle wick to ¼”, if necessary.

Extinguishing

To prevent smoke when extinguishing a candle, use a metal tool to dunk the wick into the melted pool of wax. Make sure you push the wick up for easy relighting. Use a snuffer to extinguish taper candles.

Blooming

Over time, a whitish film will develop on only 100% pure beeswax candles. This is a good sign to show high quality and pure beeswax! Gently polish with a soft cloth or use a warm hair dryer to remove the ‘bloom,’ if desired.

Pillars

Put pillars on heat resistant plates and tealights, votives and tapers in holders. Holders should allow good air circulation to the wick and be placed on sturdy surfaces for safety. Ensuring there are no (or minimal) drafts in a room, will help with even burning.
