How long will my candle burn for?
In ideal conditions, huggie mug and 8oz Keep Cup candles burn for approximately 50 hours, 12oz Keep Cup candles burn for up to 65 hours.
Please note that we aim to ensure all of our candles are as long lasting as possible however burn times do vary based on a variety of factors. These include candle maintenance (whether wicks are being properly trimmed and are centred), the length of each continuous burn time (a longer burn that results in a deeper melted wax pool has the tendency to evaporate faster), candle placement (air-conditioned and drafty areas may effect burn times) and the age of the candle. You will find burning instructions on the base of your candle.
Do I need to trim my candle wicks?
Yes. As the wax level drops, the wicks effectively become longer so we advise that you trim the wicks to 7mm and ensure they're upright prior to each new burn.
Why do I need to burn my andle for more than 1 hour and less than 4?
If you burn for less than one hour the wax may not be melted all the way to the outside of the candle. Once this happens the candle can form a pattern of tunnelling which leaves unmelted wax around the edges, may reduce the overall fragrance throw and eventually may drown the wicks so the candle will not stay alight. If you burn for longer than four hours, the candle wick can become quite long and may fall onto the side of the vessel and cause carbon build up.
Why do you say to stop burning with 10mm of wax left?
We ask that you stop burning your candle at the 10mm wax mark as lower than this there may not be enough wax left in the candle to absorb the heat of the flame, which can lead the vessel to becoming excessively hot.
Why is there a black residue forming around the rim of my candle jar?
A candle wick requires trimming between burns or if the candle has been burning continuously for two or more hours. The wicks should be trimmed to about 7mm from the wax, only then will the candle stop emitting carbon - the black residue. If there is black residue on the vessel of your candle jar, use a dry piece of paper towel and wipe clean.
