Candle Care Guide

Welcome to Our Candle Care Guide!

At Azizi Candle Company, we're dedicated to ensuring you enjoy our handcrafted candles safely and to their fullest. Here are some essential tips for optimal candle care:

  1. Allow for a Full Melt Pool: For the first burn, allow the wax to melt to the container's edges. This process, known as achieving a full melt pool, prevents tunneling and ensures an even burn throughout the candle's life. This usually takes about 1 hour per inch of the candle's diameter.
  2. Avoid Drafts (Air Currents) Place your candle in an area free from air currents, such as those caused by fans, air conditioners, open windows, or busy walkways. Air currents can lead to uneven burning, increased soot, and a reduced burn time.
  3. Trim the Wick Before lighting your candle each time, ensure the wick is about 1/4 inch long. This helps prevent soot and ensures a clean, even burn. Trim the blackened part of the wick for the best results. You can use a wick trimmer, scissors, or even carefully pinch off the cooled, blackened wick with your fingers.
  4. Burn Safely Never leave a burning candle unattended. Ensure candles are out of reach of children and pets. To prevent overheating, avoid burning your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
  5. Extinguish Properly When extinguishing your candle, blow gently and carefully to avoid the blackened part of the wick falling into the melted wax. This is important as it helps maintain the purity of the wax and the fragrance's integrity. Fallen wick debris can dirty the wax and potentially alter the scent. Alternatively, using a candle snuffer can prevent this issue and is a safer way to put out your candle.
  6. Store Correctly Keep your candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to preserve their fragrance and color. Cover them when not in use to prevent dust accumulation.
  7. Reuse and Recycle Once your candle has completely burned, consider repurposing the container. It can be cleaned and used for various storage or decorative purposes.

Safety Warning: Candles are an open flame and must be treated with respect and caution. Failure to follow these instructions may result in a fire hazard or injury. Always keep burning candles within sight and away from flammable objects, children, and pets.
