Etikette Candles Candle Care Tips


  1. Always trim your wick to 5mm before lighting your candle.

  2. On the first burn, allow the wax pool to melt all the way to the edge of your vessel before extinguishing. This will create a memory and ensures an even burn, which prevents your candle from tunnelling around the wick.

  3. Never leave your candle burning longer than 2 hours. It’s important to carefully monitor the burn time, especially once you’re half way through your candle as the reduced amount of wax can cause the jar to overheat. Once your candle has burned beyond the halfway point reduce your burn times to a one hour maximum.

  4. After use allow the wax to cool and reset then re-trim your wick to 5mm prior to the next burn. This will prevent mushrooming of the wick.

  5. Discontinue use when the wax reaches 1-1.5cm from the bottom of your vessel. Continuing to burn the candle without enough wax may cause the jar to overheat and crack.

  6. Upcycle! Soy wax biodegradable, simply wash out with hot soapy water and repurpose your beautiful amber glassware.
