How to care for your candle



We want you to love every moment of your Soy Candle, from Light House Healing, however the use of candles requires a few precautions to always be followed:

•    Burn within sight.

•    Keep away from things that catch fire.

•    Keep away from children.

Candle Safety Instructions:

1. Never leave a burning candle unattended.

2. Never use water to extinguish a candle.

3. Ensure wicks are trimmed to 5-7mm during use and each time candle is relit.

4. Do not burn a Lighthouse Candle burn for more than 4 hours at a time however you want to ensure you achieve a full melt pool right across the top of your candle so do not extinguish before this has been achieved (which should occur before the 4 hours) otherwise future burns will tunnel. 

5. Stop burning when 1cm of wax remains in the bottom of the glass.

6. Never move a burning candle. Ensure candle is extinguished, wax is solid and jar is cold before handling.

7. Glass may become hot. Burn candle on an appropriate flat heat-resistant surface.

8. Avoid using in drafty areas, near an open window, air duct or fan.

9. Keep away from children, pets and flammable materials.

10. Do not use lid to extinguish candle.

Candle Care Guide:

1. Prevent soot from forming on the glass by keeping wicks trimmed.

2. Never allow the candle flame to come in contact with the side of the glass.

3. Do not use if glass is cracked, chipped or broken.

4. If candle has multiple wicks, they must all be lit every time the candle is used.

5. When not in use, keep candle covered to avoid dust build-up.

6. Use a candle snuffer to properly extinguish a candle flame. If not available, blow gently and steadily on the flame until it is extinguished.

7. Container candle burn times will vary. Fragrance, burning habits and environmental conditions affect the time a candle will last.

8. Upon cooling, your soy candle may appear “bumpy” on the top. This is completely normal and a natural characteristic of all soy wax.

9. Some features of soy wax include ‘shrinkage’ and ‘frosting’. Shrinkage occurs due to changes in temperature and looks like an ‘air bubble’ where the wax pulls away from the glass. Frosting is the appearance of ‘white frost’ around the wax and occurs due to humidity at the time of the candle cooling and curing. Neither of these conditions will affect the burn time or fragrance of the candle.

Use with an electric melt warmer or a tea light melter. Place melt in electric melter and turn on or light a tea light to melt. Always use melters within sight, out of reach from children and pets. Never move a hot melter.
