Hi Everyone! The Mane Monogram is super excited to now carry soy candles hand poured by Wicks & Wood of Peachtree City, Georgia. If you have not used wooden wick candles, here are some tips and tricks to keep in mind:
1. If, after lighting the candle for the first time, you notice the candle has trouble staying lit or has a low flame, break off the charred part of the wick and relight.
2. If, after burning the candle for a while the flame is low, you may need to simply remove the extra wood wick.
3. Wooden wicks are generally self-trimming, but if the excess burnt wood is longer than 1/4", break it off before lighting again.
4. The first time you light the candle, allow the melted wax to pool until it reaches the edge of the container. This may take about 2 hours.
5. Burn on a heat resistant, flat surface. Keep away from drafts, children, pets, fabric or flammables. always burn within sight. Never leave the candle unattended.
6. Wooden wicks light slower than cotton wicks. Comparable to lighting a fireplace, hold your lighter close to the wick for 20 or more seconds to fully light the wick.
7. Burn for a maximum of 4 hours. Continuing to burn for more than 4 hours is a safety hazard and will also reduce the life of the candle.
8. Do not touch the metal tin while the candle is burning. Let it cool after extinguishing the flame.
9. Once the candle has reached about 1/2" of wax remaining, stop burning it. Continuing to burn past this point is a fire hazard.
10. Soy wax candles burn slower and are more temperature sensitive than paraffin candles. Your burn rate and candle characteristics are dependent upon the type and temperature of the room.
