How to Care For Your Beeswax Candle
Are you now the proud owner of a 100% Natural Beeswax Candle?
Taking good care of your candle will ensure that it lasts longer, burns brighter and provides you with the real benefits of owning a 100% pure beeswax candle.
Here’s a Rhoose Point Remedies care guide so that you can make the most of your luxury candle!
1. Keep Your Wick Trimmed
In order to ensure optimal burning, before lighting your beeswax candle, trim the wick to ¼” (6 mm)
It is important to maintain a ¼” wick length (the part of the wick visible above the pool of wax) so that the flame doesn’t flicker, dance and spike which will add soot to the room.
2. Avoid A Spiking Flame
When lit, the beeswax candle flame should be rounded at all times.
If flame is not rounded, the wick has become too long or there is a considerable draft in the room.
3. Do Not Blow Out Your Candle
Never blow out your candle flame.
When you blow out a flame the thick cotton wick will keep smouldering and fill the air with smoke and soot which is not good for your health!
To extinguish the candle flame, dunk the burning wick into the molten wax pool using a wick dipper, then straighten upright so that it is ready for lighting again.
4. Recycle & Reuse
Don’t forget to recycle your packaging and remove the remaining wax from your matt black glass jar so that you can use it again
