Candle Care

 

Candle Care:

All Neon Pear Takeaway Candles are made with 100% natural soy wax and a natural cotton wick.
Our soy wax is eco-friendly and biodegradable, giving you a non-toxic and clean burn.
That means no nasties such as no petroleum, lead or pesticides.

When burnt properly, your candle will last you well over 60 hours. 
Here’s our tips and tricks on getting the most out of your candles.

 

1. FIRST BURN

When you first burn your candle, it is very important to allow the wax to burn evenly across the entire surface, approximately 2 hours.
This melt pool will encourage a maximum fragrance throw and an even burn without ‘tunnelling’.

 

2. PROTECT YOUR WICK

Always keep your wicks trimmed to 5-7mm. This will help maximum burn time, help your candle to burn evenly and eliminate 'smoking'.

 

3. KEEP IT CLEAN

When wax has cooled, place lid back onto your cup as soy wax candles are notorious for attracting dust from around the home.
However, if need be, you can easily wipe away any dust.
Some soot may form around the edges of the cup and this is normal. To remove simply wipe away with a damp cloth.

 

4. WHERE TO PUT IT

Carefully position your candle away from direct sunlight and/or any strong drafts.
This will encourage an even burn and a good burn time.

 

5. KEEP AN EYE ON THE TIME

We suggest to always burn your candle for 2-3 hours at a time, but never longer than 4 hours per burn.

 

5. PUT IT OUT

It ain’t a birthday cake, so avoid blowing out your candle to eliminate the smell of smoke.
You can actually dip the wick into the melted pool of wax and then straighten it up. This method also prepares your wick for your next burn.  
Otherwise pinching or snuffing it out works well too. 

 

6. LET IT GO

Stop burning your candle when the wax nears the bottom of the cup, about 1cm.

 

IMPORTANT - CANDLE SAFETY:

  • Do not leave your burning candle unsupervised or in reach of children and pets.
  • Keep the flame away from any flammable items around the home and ensure candles are placed on a heat resistant surface.
  • Never move or touch a burning candle.
  • Remove packaging and lid from candle before burning.
  • We are aware that our candles smell delicious and are in takeaway cups, however do not drink the wax.
  • Always read the safety instructions on the base of the candle before use.

 

Reusing your Ceramic Take Cup:

Once you’re done with your candle you can re-use the cup! 

Simply place your ceramic cup into the freezer and once the wax has fully hardened, you will be able to easily chip out the remaining wax and wick. 

Then wash with warm soapy water and you’re good to go. Yay!
