Flamin Wax Candles
All of Pencil & Thread's Flamin Wax Candles are hand poured in the Southern Highlands using high quality Soy Wax with a perfume grade fragrance. The wicks are cotton dipped in wax to keep its shape which are achored in with a metal tab stuck to the glass or tin with a sticker tab/glue. All Flamin Wax candles are made to order to keep the fragrance nice and fresh. Due to the changing weather in the Southern Highlands some candles may come with wet spots on the glass. This is due to temperature change but does not affect the quality of the candle. We recommend on your first burn you trim the wick and burn for atleast 4hrs to get a nice even burn through out the candles burning life. The candles can burn between 25 - 60 hrs depending on the care and temperature of the environment they are set in.
Before lighting your candle, trim the candle wick to approximately 5mm.
The first time you use your new candle, burn for at least 2-3 hours, allowing the wax to burn evenly across the surface. Scented candles develop a 'burn memory' and a candle that has not been burnt right to the edges on its initial use, will 'tunnel' and burn unevenly through the center of the wax.
For maximum burn time, always keep candle wicks trimmed to approximately 5mm. Not only will trimming the wick help your candle to burn evenly, but it will also eliminate smoking and minimise soot forming on the glass. However, a small amount of soot around the edges of the glass vessel is normal, particularly as your candle reaches the bottom. To remove, simply wipe with a wet cloth.
Ensure you position your scented candle away from drafts. A draft can result in an uneven burn and will reduce the life of your candle.
For best results, always burn your candle for at least 2 hours at a time, but never burn a scented candle for more than 4 hours. After 4 hours, extinguish the flame and allow to cool. Once the candle has cooled, trim wick to approximately 5mm and it may be relit again.
When extinguishing your candle, never blow out the flame. This can not only damage the candle, but will also taint your beautifully scented room with the smell of smoke! Always use a candle snuffer to extinguish the flame. Alternatively dip the wick in wax to distinguish the candle and then set the wick upright and center again ready for the next burn.
Never leave a candle unsupervised. Choose where you burn your candle carefully keeping the flame away from drafts, curtains, papers and other flammable items around the home.
Keep burning candles out of reach of children and pets.
Protect your furnishings from the heat. Candles, especially after burning for more than 3 hours can get very hot. So ensure candles are placed on a heat resistant surface and your furniture will thank you for it. Never move or touch a burning candle.
Always keep your candle wick trimmed to less than 5mm to keep the flame height minimal. Do not allow any wick trimmings to fall into the candle. Not only will this affect the scent of your candle but also poses as a fire hazard.
Remove candles from their packaging before burning.
Always read the safety instructions on the base of the candle before use.
Stop burning your candle when you have about 1 cm of wax left.
