Top Tips For Candle Making
Wick Centering Tool - To center your wicks if you don't have a wick bar, you can also use skewers, chopsticks, or cocktail sticks with elastic bands, pegs, or twine.
Glasses - Warm your glasses to lessen the possibility of shrinking, you can do this by putting them in a hot bath or running them under a hot tap, being careful not to get any water inside the glass.
Flat & Protected - Before pouring, always make sure your candle glasses are on a flat, level surface. If possible, keep them away from open windows so that no uninvited guests end up swimming in your exquisitely made candles.
Candle Making FAQs
Do candles have a shelf life?
Candles created with synthetic materials have a long shelf life, whereas candles made with natural vegetable wax work best when burned within a few months. When a candle is lit, you can tell if it's spoiled because the scent has faded and the melt quality has altered. We advise using a candle within a year of purchasing it.
Do you completely burn candles to the end?
Candles shouldn't be burned all the way down for safety reasons. When a candle is lit, the heat is absorbed by the wax. However, as the wax melts and the jar is exposed, the glass heats up too much, which increases the chance of it cracking or exploding and starting a fire. When your candle has less than 1-2 cm of wax in the jar, do not burn it.
What setting is ideal for creating candles?
A room should be between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius for making candles so that the wax may cool and set, without the risk of staying melted. While working with fragrance and essential oils, we also advise keeping a window open or a fan running to keep the air circulating. Just be careful not to pour your candles too close to a window or a fan.
