Candle Care

Each of our Wiks Candles are hand-poured with every effort to ensure you receive the best burn and consistency from your candle.

Below are a few steps to ensure a beautiful burn, time after time.

Let it burn

This is an important step when lighting your Wiks candle for the first time and will make future burns so much better. Wait until the wax has completely melted to the edge of the candle before extinguishing the flame to avoid creating a ‘memory ring’. These rings will continue to tunnel through for the life of a candle, so it’s best to burn properly the first time round.

Trim your Wick

To get an even burn every time, keep your wick trimmed between 3mm – 5mm and remove any wick debris before lighting your candle. 

If you don’t have a wick trimmer handy, you can also 'snap' the burnt wood using your fingers.

If the candle has been burning for a long period of time and the flame is getting too low, you may need to tap off any excess ash or burnt wood along the top of the wick. However, be careful to never break off the entire charred wick as it won’t leave you with enough wick to relight the candle.

Safety First

Always ensure you burn your candle on a heat resistant surface.

Keep away from little hands and pets....if they are anything like my boys there will be great satisfaction in blowing out the flame or playing with the wax!

Never burn lower than .5cm from the bottom and never leave unattended.
