trim your wick

So this post is all about how to best care for your Sandwick Bay candle.

Pure soy candles burn evenly and slower than paraffin wax candles.

To ensure the maximum burn time for your candle there are some things to keep in mind.

  • soy wax has a memory so the first burn is very important. The candle must burn until a liquid of soy (min 1cm) gathers at the top.
  • before lighting your candle again you must trim the wick to approx. 5mm
  • keep out of reach of children and pets and place on a level, fire resistant surface.

Wick trimming – trimming the wicks, keeping them short and clean will eliminate ‘smokey’ burns. If your candle is flickering or smoking you will need to extinguish the flame, straighten the wick and then trim it before re lighting. This will also give your scented candle a longer life. You can get some lovely wick trimmers which will be available on my website soon, as seen in the above photo.

Safety burn times – it is recommended to not burn your candle longer than 4 hours at one time.

Don’t forget to extinguish your candle

All Sandwick Bay candle fragrance oils due to their raw materials may discolour the wax. This is normal and does not affect the quality of the product.
