Four Element Candles | Burning Ritual
The quality of our scented candles implies a specific burning ritual. During burning, it’s important to wait for the entire surface of the candle to liquefy before putting it out. This will prevent the formation of craters, which are both aesthetically displeasing and make future burning difficult.
The first time you light your candle should be longer than the following times, to allow the entire surface to liquefy. The length of this phase varies depending on the environment, usually it takes 3 to 4 hours.
We also recommend that you blow out the candle an hour after the surface has liquefied. This will make the candle last longer since liquid wax evaporates quickly. Once the surface is liquid, the inner wax of the candle heats up and begins to evaporate very quickly.
Make sure never to leave your candle unattended and not to expose it to sources of heat or wind. Exposing your candle to wind gusts will cause the flame to flicker and give off black smoke.
Trim the wicks regularly. They should not exceed 1/4 inch.
IF there is sooting on the vessel, or from the wick, excessive flickering, or mushrooming of the wick- trim it to 1/4 inch.
Wait until the whole surface becomes liquid before putting out your candle
Regularly clean the inside of the vessel to avoid the appearance of soot.
After use, place vessel in freezer to easily remove remaining wax, wash vessel and repurpose.
