Beeswax Candle Care

HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR BEESWAX CANDLE

Vix Wix  beeswax pillars offer a long life, bright light. These candles are made to burn all day.  It is best to burn it at least 3 hours each time to ensure the beeswax melts to the edge so no walls are created. If you don't burn it for 3 hours there may be a wall form, but this will come and go as the candle burns over time. A changing sculpture.

Like all of us, these beeswax candles will benefit from a hug. To hug a candle, wait until the candle has been burning for long enough to warm up and soften the outer wax around the melt pool of the candle. You can then very gently with care, push the soft wax at the edge of the candle in slightly toward the flame. This ensures that there is very little wax wastage when you get to the end of your candle.

It is recommended to burn Beeswax candles for at least 2-3 hours at each burn.  (beeswax is very slow burning)

Wait for the melt pool to reach the edge of the candle before extinguishing

Extinguish candle by pushing wick into melted wax pool with a metal tool preventing afterglow and smoke.

Always trim the wick to 1cm before lighting to prevent soot and an                      excessively high flame
