Candle Care

This is our gift to you! These tips will help your candles burn brighter for longer and allow you to keep your Artemis Hunt candles for years to come.

The First Burn is the MOST Important!

When you light your candle for the first time, always allow the wax to burn so that it melts across the entire surface to the edges and pools to the edges of the container. This will assist in preventing tunnelling and help promote an even burn for the duration of the candle's life. 

Avoid light and hot temperatures (sounds weird for a candle, but trust us!)

Candle waxes and fragrances are sensitive to both temperature and light, so try to be careful when storing candles. Try to always store your candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This will always help protect it from discolouration and fading.

Trim your cotton wicks!

Try to ensure that your wick is always kept to 6mm long at all times. We recommend trimming the wick every 3 hours of burn time. When trimming, always extinguish the flame, let the candle cool down to room temperature, remove any wick debris and trim the wick before relighting. This will help to encourage a more even burn, steady flame, and limit sooting.

Wood wick! 

Your Wood wick comes trimmed between 4mm / 6mm in length.You don`t need to trim your wood wick just let the candle cool down to room temperature, remove any wick debris and trim the wick before relighting. This will help to encourage a more even burn, steady flame, and limit sooting.

Putting out your candle

Try to always use a proper candle snuffer or a swift blow of air to extinguish your candles as this will prevent the wick from moving and wax from spilling. This will also assist in maximising your burn times. 

Spilt Wax Removal

If you accidentally spill candle wax, ensure that you let it harden so it can be easily removed in pieces. Cover it with paper towels, newspaper or similar spare material you have lying around and gently press with an iron on low heat. The spilt wax should melt and absorb into the paper.

Blackened Edges of Glass

If your candle glass starts to blacken with use, remember to keep the wick trimmed well. Also always wait until after the candle is extinguished and cooled before removing the black marks with a dry paper towel.

Maximising your Scent Throw

In order to maximise fragrance scent throw in a room, keep doors and windows closed and burn for 30 minutes. Opening windows and doors will help the scent to disperse.
