The first issue is tunnelling, read our separate blog post on this for our quick and easy fix here

If you have burnt candles in the past then you may have noticed some minor issues with your candles, here are our top fixes

  • Soot on the sides of the glass ~ trimming your wick to 5mm BEFORE EVERY BURN helps prevent this. A wick which is too long will result in a bigger flame, your candle burning too quickly and soot. Also remove any debris from the wax.

  • An off centre wick ~ the wick can start to droop after a while, after you have extinguished the candle, leave it to cool for a few minutes and then recentre your wick, we have tools for this in our accessories section or you can use a chop stick or pencil. This will keep the wick centered and burning evenly.

  • Keep candles away from draughts, a draught will cause your flame to flicker and burn faster or it may cause it to only melt one side of the container.

  • Leave a candle for 2 hours between burns to allow the wax to harden and form a solid state again.

  • NEVER burn for more than 4 hours at a time and NEVER allow the candle to burn to the bottom of the glass, this can cause the container glass to overeat and crack or shatter.
