CANDLE CARE TIPS
TIP 1: TRIM YOUR WICK
Between burns, trim your wick to ¼ inch before relighting. The shorter height allows the wax to feed the flame properly. It’s normal for the Wooden Wick to blacken when burning. Using a wick trimmer, nail clippers or scissors, snip off the black curled part of the wick when trimming.
TIP 2: REACH A FULL MELT POOL ON THE FIRST BURN
When burning your candle for the first time, burn it for long enough that you achieve a full melt pool. This means that the melted wax reaches the edge of the vessel. This helps to avoid tunnelling and ensures an even burn each time.
TIP 3: THINK SAFETY
Safety first, especially when it's an open flame. Do not leave your candle burning unattended, and keep away from pets, children, flowers, drapes, or anything that may catch fire. Burn your candle on an even, heat proof surface. Our vessels are ceramic and do not get as hot as glass, however prolonged burning may cause the vessel to heat. Place your candle away from strong drafts - this will help to achieve an even burn too. Once your candle burns down & you have ¼ inch wax left, it's time to wash it out and find a new purpose for your vessel. Put the lid back on between burns, to avoid any dust, debris or bugs from falling into the wax.
TIP 4: BURN FOR MAX 4 HOURS AT A TIME
This prevents the vessel from getting too hot and it means your candle lasts longer too.
TIP 5: REUSE & UPCYCLE
Just like with nature, when one thing runs the course of its life, it makes space for another to take its place. We encourage this cycle with our ROAM candles. Set your vibe, absorb your scent, and when your candle burn is complete, clean out your vessel and plant a seed.
REUSING YOUR VESSELS
There are endless ways you can repurpose your candle vessel around the home and it makes a great decorative piece. To clean your jar, scoop out any excess wax using a teaspoon and wash the vessel with warm soapy water or place it in the dishwasher. Reuse your vessel as a plant pot, a cute makeup brush holder, a decorative jar...the options are endless. Alternatively, you can break the jar apart and use it in plant pots to help aerate the soil.
