Your new Shmood candle has arrived, you take it out of the box, 'ahhh' out loud at the scent and get it burning. But did you know that there are some simple rules to remember to make sure your candle looks and smells great for longer?
Trim your wick
Signs your candle needs a trim
The flame is growing too high and flickering excessively
When lighting the candle make sure that no wick trimmings or used matches are in the wax, always burn your candle on an even and fire-resistant surface and ensure that it is away from flammable items.
Never burn the candle for longer than 4 hours to prevent overheating. Always burn your candle within sight, away from drafts or direct sunlight and never leave it unattended. Please keep it out of reach of children and pets.
Natural waxes can be temperamental, especially when exposed to a cold environment. Therefore, you may notice that the wax around your glass settles differently. This does not affect your candle’s performance and is a good sign as it proves that we only use 100% pure soy wax; blends that use harmful paraffin wax and fillers do not do this.
Do not relight the candle when the wax level is below 1cm. Scrape out the wax and make a wax melt! You can reuse the glass as a plant pot, drinking glass or storage jar.
