Candle Care + Safety

What does the term 'tunnelling' mean?


Tunnelling is the term used for when a candle burns down the centre, leaving hard wax around the outside. This affects the burn-time, meaning you won't get the most out of your candle. Typically, this is caused by only lighting your candle for short periods and not allowing an even wax pool to form. To avoid tunnelling we recommend that you place a lot of emphasis on the first burn, as this is the most important! Candle has memory, so if you only burn for short periods, it will copy this on each burn and will never melt to the edges. For our 180 ml jars, we recommend that you light your candle for at least 2 - 2.5 hours on the first burn and this should allow you to achieve a full wax pool by the 2nd or 3rd time you burn it.




Why is it important to trim the wick before each burn?


Trimming your wick will help you get the most out of your candle by providing a longer burn time, and will also prevent it from sooting when burning - overall, a cleaner burn is achieved. We recommend that you trim your wick to 5mm before each burn - please note, the only time you don't need to trim your wick is when you light it for the first time. You can trim your wick by using a pair of scissors, or a proper wick trimmer (if you have one).




Why should I keep the lid on my candle when I'm not burning it?


If you’re not burning your candle often, the top may accumulate dust and other particles, which may affect the way the candle burns. Replacing the lid can help keep the top clear, but if you do notice any dust on it, carefully wipe off the top of the wax with a damp cotton pad before lighting it again




How should I put my candle out?


We recommend using a candle snuffer to avoid wax splash - this will help to maximise the candle’s burn time. Blowing out a candle is not recommended as the liquid wax may splatter and the wick may continue to glow and emit smoke.




Where should I store my candle?


Candles are sensitive to temperature and light, so we recommend storing your candle in a cool, dry place and away from any direct sunlight. This will help prevent your candles from fading, cracking and melting.




Where can I find candle safety information?


Using candles safely in your home is extemely important, therefore all Twig Pea candles come with a candle care and safety guide, providng information on how to safely burn your candle. More specifically:-

  • Do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Burn your candle on a heat resistent surface and away from any draughts or heat sources.
  • Burn in a well ventilated room.
  • Always trim the wick to 5mm before each burn and keep the wax pool clear of any debris.
  • Be careful, the container may become hot to toch. Do not move a burning candle.
  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • Stop burning your candle when 10mm of wax remains at the bottom.
