Our handmade candles are different from mass produced candles mainly due to our use of natural Soy and Coconut based waxes. Our candles are poured at a lower temperature to minimise cracking, however, you may still see a slight blemish on the surface. This is a natural occurrence and will not affect the performance of the candle.
After lighting you should allow the entire surface to become molten as this ensures an even burn, prevents tunnelling (where wax is left around the candle edges) and maximises the scent throw. This may take up to an hour.
The White Cuckoo candle range has been extensively tested to ensure that the optimum wick size is matched to the container. Should the candle smoke when burning, or the flame ‘dance’ wildly, extinguish the wick, allow the candle to cool and solidify, then trim the wick to 5mm. When relit the candle will burn without smoke and the flame will be calm and solid.
When you light a Coconut Soy Wax candle for the first time it is important to remember that it has a ‘memory’. You should burn your Coconut Soy Wax candle until you have a full ‘melt pool’, that is to say until the wax has melted across the entire top of the candle. This will prevent ‘tunnelling’.
1 It is advisable to snuff the flame to extinguish the candle. If the flame is blown out it will disturb the wax and the wick may smoke.
2 Avoid placing the candle in a draught. This may result in a quick and uneven burn.
