Candle care

We want our customers to get the most out of our Saint Pour candles and enjoy the wonderful essential oils and chakra healing for as long as possible. To help with this, there are a few techniques that can be employed to ensure that your candles perform as designed. 

 

Did you know that candles have a memory? 

 

When you light your candle for the first time, make sure you burn it long enough to create a pool of wax across most of the diameter of your candle. By doing this it will ‘remember’ to burn to the edge and not form a tunnel. This will give you maximum fragrance and an even burn. 

 

For longevity of your candle, generally burn for 1-2 hours at a time, never exceeding 4 hours. 

 

Always trim the wick to about 5mm before you re-light your candle. This will ensure a long lasting candle, minimise soot and remove any mushrooming of the wick left from the previous burn. 

Burn in a draft free area and store candle away from direct sunlight.

 

To avoid having a smokey wick use a wick dipper to put out your candle.

 

Discontinue burning the candle when there is 5mm of wax at the bottom of the jar. Glass is vulnerable to heat and could crack or break when there isn’t enough wax to absorb the heat

 

They have a low melting point, which means they burn for longer and thus will fill your room with their beautiful scents for longer.  

Soy wax is water-soluble so any spills clean up easily with hot soapy water. Each Saint Pour soy candle is individually wicked and hand poured with natural soy wax and blended with high quality essential oils for the perfect scent. All our candles have a lead free wick, are clean burning, eco friendly and make the perfect gift or addition to your space.

 

Remember that every candle is hand poured and not mass produced, although all effort is made to ensure consistency, every candle will be different and unique.
