Wick & Candle Care

Getting the Most Out of Your Candles

Candle Care Tips

  • Avoid burning near any type of draft, high-traffic areas, children, and pets.

  • The slightest draft can cause the wax to burn unevenly.

  • Also, insufficient oxygen can cause the candle to smoke.

  • Candles should be placed on a stable heat resistant non-flammable surface. We recommend a candle coaster to protect the surface from heat.

  •  Keep candles away from items that can ignite such as clothing, books, paper, curtains, trees, greenery, flammable decorations, or anything else that burns. Do not place lit candles in windows where blinds or curtains can close over them.

  • Burn until the entire surface of the wax is liquified, about 2hrs.

  • Do not blow out the candle before the entire surface is liquified.

  • Do not burn candles longer than 3-4 hrs.

  • Trim the wooden wick before your first burn to 1/4 inch.

  • Before your next burn, we suggest using candle wick trimmers to trim the wood wick to 1/4 inch again before re-lighting.

  • If the wick is too long, it cannot absorb the wax and burn properly.

Important to Note:

Placing the correct size candle in the suggested room will help your candle perform best. Our (9oz) Candle works best in medium-sized rooms such as kitchens, dining rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms, or offices. Our 9oz candle has a burn time of 50+ hours, while our 16oz candles have a burn time of 70+ hours.

Double-Woodwick Care

Just like us, wood wicks can exhibit a touch of unpredictability, but they possess a unique charm of their own. Our natural and untreated crackling wood wicks may exhibit slight variations in thickness and grain, which could result in a slightly different burning experience for your eScential Soy candle. This could manifest as varying flame sizes, but rest assured, it does not compromise the candle's quality.

For the initial lighting and subsequent burns, it's important to tilt the candle and relight it at an angle while ensuring both wicks are lit simultaneously. Allowing the flame to gradually move across the length of the wick is vital for a consistent burn. Igniting one wick at a time may lead to wick drowning or uneven melting pools.

Before relighting, be sure to remove any burnt wood from previous use by delicately breaking off the charred edges either with your fingertips or a wick trimmer. Keep your wood wicks trimmed to a length of 1/8 to 1/4 inch.

Wood wick candles demand perseverance and patience, but through this, you'll come to appreciate the intricate beauty of the complexities of nature.

We believe in clean ingredients.
