Please review this important information on the proper usage of your candle.
Best practices in the usage of your Belle Chic Candle.
Trim wick 1/4" before first burn and in between burn times. Not trimming the wick before each burn time may cause the candle jar to soot.
The first time a candle burns it creates or sets a "memory" in the wax. The memory will be the foundation for how the rest of the candle will burn. If the candle is not burned properly and not allowed to burn around the edges the first time (3-4) hours, it will start to "tunnel" each time you burn it. You may need to burn your candle a little longer the first time to ensure the wax melts completely around the edges.
8oz candles will burn for 45-55 hours, 9oz and 10oz candles will burn for 55-65 hours, 11oz candles will burn for 65-75 hours, and 12oz candles will burn for 75 - 85 hours.
Avoid burning the candles for more than 3 - 4 hours at a time. Burning the candle longer than recommended may cause the candle jar to get hot and may also cause the candle jar to soot.
Place the candle jar on a heat resistant surface. We recommend leaving 1/2" to 1/4" wax from the bottom of the jar to avoid the jar getting too hot.
After gently extinguishing your candle, use a tweezers or something heat resistant to center the wick before the wax hardens. After centering the wick, put the lid on the jar to keep dirt or dust from getting on the jar, wax and wick.
If candle jar does soot it can be wiped clean with a soft damp cloth when the flame is extinguished and wax is at room temperature.
Notes on how your Belle Chic candle is made.
The candles are made with a Soy/Paraffin wax blend. This combination is safe and makes for a beautiful candle with a strong scent throw.
No additives or dyes are used in the making of the candles.
Candles are triple scented. The scent throw will become stronger once the candle is burning and wax pool occurs.
Candles are hand-poured.
Following the directions on how to take care of your candle will allow it to last longer.
