To get the best burn
Aacute Wood wick soy candles are made from natural resources and, because of this, the wick functions like any wood used in a campfire or fireplace. It burns brightest in a well-ventilated room and thrives on oxygen, we suggest placing it by an open window, but don’t mistake this for drafts!
The wick should be lit from the bottom – where the wick meets the wax. If it goes out after the first light, don’t worry, it just needs encouragement from the second lighting. Try not to move the candle once it has been lit.
To ensure you get the best burn experience from your wood wick candle please be sure to let the candle melt a pool across the entire surface, reaching the sides of the jar. This will look about 1cm deep to ensure a lasting, even and efficient burn. All candles have a memory and if you don’t burn them correctly each time, you will reduce the life of your candle and cause tunnelling. See picture below. Once it has been melted, the texture may alter due to the essential oils and natural wood wick staining (this is normal).
Only burn the candle on a level, fire resistant surface. Do not move while lit or wait until the wax hardens. Burn for at least one hour but do not burn the candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Discontinue use when ½” wax remains at the bottom.
