The candle ritual
A candle it's pretty, but it's still a miniature fire!
Follow this easy maintenance process to ensure your burning experience is optimal and your candle melts evenly.
- Trim the wick down to 1/4" before each burn. A long or bent wick can cause an uneven burn . A wick trimmer is ideal, as it collects the combustion debris, but a simple nail clipper for a new wick or your fingers for a charred wick can do the job just fine.
- Place the candle on a stable, straight and heat resistant surface.
- Keep the burn surface clear of any debris or wick residue.
- Leave the candle lit until the wax is melted from wall to wall (about 2-3 hours). Do not burn a candle for more than 4 hours each time. This can overheat the pot and cause it to break and/or burn the fragrance early.
- Do not handle the candle when it is lit. The pot can get very hot!
- Always keep an eye on your candle, keep out of reach of children and pets.
- To facilitate the removal of the leftover wax, make sure to leave ¼” of wax at the bottom of the pot on your last use of the candle. You can reuse your pot many times with Coton Corail candle refills.
- Throw the remaining wax in the compost! (Remove the metal wick base).
