CANDLE CARE & SAFETY

CARE

 

ANOUK GANIA SCENTED SOY CANDLES ARE HANDMADE USING THE FINEST QUALITY ESSENTIAL AND AROMA OILS, RESINS, EXTRACTS AND PLANT BASED WAXES. IF BURNT PROPERLY, YOUR PERFUMED CANDLE WILL LAST APPROXIMATELY 70 HOURS.

 

BURNING TO THE EDGE

 

THE FIRST TIME YOU LIGHT THE CANDLE, PLEASE BURN IT UNTIL THE MELT POOL REACHES THE SIDES OF THE GLASS. THIS SHOULD TAKE APPROXIMATELY 3 - 4 HOURS. ALLOW THE WAX TO SET COMPLETELY BEFORE RE-LIGHTING. EACH SUBSEQUENT TIME YOU LIGHT THE CANDLE, ALLOW IT TO BURN TO THE EDGE. WAX HAS A BURN MEMORY SO THIS PROCESS ENSURES YOUR CANDLE DOES NOT TUNNEL. THIS WILL GIVE YOUR CANDLE A LONG LIFE. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND BURNING YOUR CANDLE FOR MORE THAN 4 HOURS AT A TIME.
POSITIONING THE WICK

 

EACH TIME YOU RE-LIGHT YOUR CANDLE, TRIM OFF THE MUSHROOM AND MAKE SURE YOUR WICK IS AROUND 1 CM HIGH. TO ENSURE A PERFECT, EVEN BURN, PLEASE CHECK THAT THE WICK IS CENTERED. IF YOU NOTICE THAT THE WICK IS NOT CENTERED, MOVE IT GENTLY INTO POSITION WHILST THE WAX IS MOLTEN.

 

KEEPING THE GLASS CLEAN

 

SOOT MAY BUILD UP AROUND THE TOP OF THE GLASS OVER TIME, THIS IS NOT UNCOMMON.  THIS HAPPENS ESPECIALLY IF YOUR CANDLE IS LEFT TO BURN FOR A LONG TIME.  SIMPLY DAMPEN A CLOTH WITH HOT WATER AND WIPE TO CLEAN THE GLASS. 

 

PLEASE REUSE OR RECYCLE YOUR GLASS AFTER USE.
