I had no idea 20 years ago when I first began experimenting with candle making that not only did candles have memories, there were many things to know when burning a candle to get the most out of each candle.
After burning literally hundreds of candles to test wicks, waxes, scents and jars, we have compiled the following tips that we hope will help you get the most out of your SERENDIPITY Candle!
SOY JAR CANDLES
Soy candles are a perfect choice for a eco-friendly and all natural alternative to paraffin candles. Soy candles burn 30-50% longer and of course cleaner than paraffin and have 95% less soot.
PURE SOY WAX MELTS
We use double the scent in our wax melts as we do in our wicked candles. The thing to remember with soy though is it does not evaporate the same as paraffin. Once you feel you are no longer smelling the scent from your melt, it is time to change them up. Let your wax cool and then scrape out into the garbage. And begin again with a NEW soy wax cube.
Because soy wax is biodegradable, it cleans up super easy with hot soapy water.
FEATHER PALM PILLAR CANDLES
Burning a pillar palm candle is a bit different than burning our soy wax jars. The first time you burn your candle, you will want to only burn 1 - 1 1/2 hours (add 1 hour of burn time to each extra inch of candle - for example a 4 inch diameter candle will need to burn closer to 2 1/2 hours for the first burn) to create your memory burn. This will ensure that the candles regularly burns down the middle.
Although it is nice to make the first burn go all the way out to the edge, this can create a too hot of wax pool as the candle burns down causing a "blow out" on the side of the candle. Remember if you are burning pillars side by side, this will create extra heat so be sure to monitor heat and wax pools and distinguish and allow to cool before relighting.
Always be sure to burn your pillars on a fireproof dish. Should a blowout occur, most traditional candle holders lack the capacity to contained leaked wax.
