There is a candle burning methodology, we encourage you to follow, ensuring you receive maximum enjoyment from your
Soular Therapy candle every time it is illuminated.
Burning: This is very important. Each time you light your candle you should not extinguish it until the top completely
liquefies and forms a pool of wax from edge to edge of the glass. This process will take approximately 60-90 minutes
depending on the glass size and will ensure the candle burns evenly and straight down the glass without wasted wax
buildup. The longer you burn your candle, the deeper the melt pool becomes, thus increasing the amount of fragrance
released. Once you extinguish your candle, the liquefied wax will continue to release fragrance while saving you burn time.
You will notice with each subsequent lighting, it will take less time to form the edge to edge pool of wax as the glass walls
heat up more rapidly.
Tunneling: When a candle is prevented from completely liquefying from edge to edge each time it is lit, a ring of wax will
begin to build up. This is called a memory ring. With each subsequent burning, the candle will only melt across as far as it
did the previous time. When wax builds up on the sides of the glass, it prevents oxygen from producing a flame large
enough to melt the surrounding wax. Reduced oxygen creates a small flame that tunnels down the center of the candle
eventually snuffing itself out. A wax ring can also be created when a candle is moved and wax sloshes against the side.
Build up can be removed by spooning out excess wax until the wax is level, like when new. This should only be done when
the candle is unlit and the wax is cold and solid. Do not put the excess wax back inside the candle.
Wick Trimming: Our candles are made with lead-free, cotton wicks specifically designed for soy wax blends. By nature,
these wicks break easily and should be carefully trimmed with a small pair of scissors or wick trimmer. The wick should be
approximately 1/4" in height and usually needs to be trimmed before each lighting. DO NOT trim the wick before the first
lighting as it is cut at a pre-measured length. The length of the wick determines the size of the flame when the candle is lit.
The longer the wick the larger the flame. On occasion when a candle burns for more than 3-4 hours, a cap of ash may
form. This indicates the wick is ready to be trimmed. Other indicators are when the flame is 3/4" or larger and burns
erratically, when a candle begins to smoke or soot begins to form on the glass. Wick trimming should be done when the
candle wax is room temperature and solid. Do not allow the wick trimmings to collect in the glass. A trimmed wick and
correct flame size will maximize the burn time of your candle.
