A LITTLE SELF-CARE

tRIM YOUR WICK AFTER BURN

In order to relight your candle you must remove the burnt wood of your wick in between burns. By simply pinching the black wood with your fingers, lightly wiggle, and snap off what is easily removed. Or you can buy candle scissors that will do this quick and easy for you. Please refrain from cutting your wick as it is very easy to cut the wick too short.

burning times

Recommended burning time:

35 hour candle (180g)  2-3 hours

important to note its is not recommended to burn a candle for more than 4 hours. It can cause the melt pool to become large, resulting in a large flame,  smoking and an overheated jar.  Please make sure you abide by the safety guidelines when burning all candles.

A good wax burn

Have you ever found that your candles begin to burn through the middle, leaving a thick layer of wax around the walls of the candle? This is called tunnelling.  In some cases this is unavoidable as your candle may have the incorrect wick in place and has not been created or tested correctly by the manufacturer. However, our candles are formulated to burn evenly. Make sure you burn your candles for a minimum of 2 hours and maximum of 4 hours to get the most out of your candle. This is most important on the first burn to induce the correct wax memory.

Hand made candles 

All Laura Rose Lifestyle candles are handmade out of natural products because of this you may notice some discoloration in your wax. This is due to natural properties of the wooden wick infusing with the melted wax. This is purely cosmetic and does not affect the performance of the candle in anyway.

 

As your candle comes to the end of its burn you might notice soot markings on your jar. This is only due to flame on your wooden wick candle this is not a health concern. Simply wipe away with a damp cloth to  renew the look of your jar.
