Candle Care 101

HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR CANDLES
-

Candles of any size, shape, or scent are beautiful additions to any home and can brighten an entire room as well as make your day a little brighter! We at Three Suns have put together an easy-to-follow guide so that you may have the best possible experience with your candles. From our glass white, gold foiled jars to our Luna glass bowls...we've got you covered!

  FIRST BURN RULE

When you receive your new Three Suns candle, let it burn long enough to allow the melted wax on the surface to reach the edge of the jar. This may take 2-4 hours depending on the size of your candle. Allow additional hours for those larger vessels that have a larger surface area.

After your first burn, we recommend burning your candle for no longer than 4 hours at a time for maximum quality and longevity. Once your candle has 10mm of wax remaining, we recommend you switch to your next yummy candle! 💕

  CANDLE STORAGE

Candles love the dark! We always recommend storing your candles in a cool, dry, and dark place. Storing candles in direct sunlight or harsh indoor lighting for long periods of time may cause them to fade or warp.  Even though all our candles are white, this is still a good tip to follow!

 HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR WICKS

 Trim them! This is a crucial part of candle care that, if not followed, can potentially be a hazard. You want to aim to keep your wick about 0.5cm This will allow for a more even burn and will help prevent the wick from mushrooming or creating soot.

If the wick is not trimmed, the flame of the candle may grow too large and begin to smoke or flicker, which are signs that the flame isn’t properly controlled.  If this occurs, simply extinguish the flame, wait for the candle to completely cool, and trim the wick with either a wick trimmer, fingers, or scissors.

CLEANING YOUR CANDLES
 

If dust forms on the surface of your candle, be sure to clean it off before lighting. To do this, use a soft cloth that is either dry or lightly dampened with water.

SNUFF IT OUT
_

A candle snuffer is recommended when extinguishing your candle. However, blowing out your candle works, too (just be careful not to splatter the hot wax!)

     

    Three Suns strives to bring a magical and enjoyable candle experience to your home! But once the candle leaves us, it still needs to be handled with care.
    I hope that this short guide has helped you better understand how to care for your candle and has answered some of questions you may have had.  Follow these tips, and your candle will surely reach its full potential from start to finish!
