Making the most of your Circa Home candles
Candles require a small amount of attention to get the best effect. Ensure wicks are upright and trimmed to 7mm. Follow all of the burning instructions and take care when burning a candle. Importantly, never pick up a burning candle or one that has just been alight – the glass gets very hot!
A candle wick requires trimming between burns or if the candle has been burning continuously for two or more hours. The wicks should be trimmed to about 7mm from the wax, only then will the candle stop emitting carbon - the black residue. If there is black residue on the glass of your candle jar, use a tissue or piece of paper towel and wipe clean.
Always make sure that all wicks are lit when using you candle. If you are still having problems such as one wick will not stay lit, look to see if the wick has been trimmed too short (less than 7mm). If so, keep lighting the wick that is too short or perhaps remove some of the liquid wax.
Whenever possible, keep Circa Home products in a cool, dark place as light and heat destroy fragrance and discolour the product. If stored correctly, unopened candles should last about two years. Keep in mind your candle jar can be washed and used for other things like cotton buds or a lighting accessory, or recycled.
