Candle Burning Tips/Trouble-shooting


  •  Wooden wick flame low:  Make sure you didn't trim the wick too much.  If you over-trimmed, pouring out some wax may help or pulling the wick up slightly with pliers can help as well.
  • Flame is getting higher as my candle burns lower:  Your candle will burn "hotter" as it gets lower.  If you reach a full melt pool, you can blow the candle out.  If you want to continue burning because it is within 4 hours, then blow out the candle and trim the wick a little more; then re-light. *don't burn for more than 4 hours.
  • I have some wax on the sides:  Your coconut wax candle will burn differently than soy wax or paraffin wax. You may have some wax on the sides and this will melt off as the candle burns lower. Continue to burn for full melt pools, but no more than 4 hours.
  • Wood products:  You will have some wax left on the bottom, stop burning at 1/2 inch (top of wick clip).  Save the metal wick clips if you plan to refill

 What happens if I don't burn until I reach a full melt pool? You will start to develop a tunnel in the center and the wax on the edges will not be able to melt off, thus be wasted.  Burn when you have a 2-3 hour time chunk available, most candles will reach a pool in this time frame

 Hey! make sure to REFILL..okay!
