Candle Care

To get the most out of your Northern Flicker candle you must care for it! Treat it with love and it will last longer and burn better for you. Here are some tips:

  • Trim the wick to 1/4" before lighting it, every time. This prevents soot and smoke.

  • The first time you light your candle, let it burn completely to the edges of the container. This is what's called a "burn pool". Soy wax has a memory and will tunnel if it hasn't had a large enough burn pool.

  • Avoid burning your candle more than 4 hours to prevent your wick from drowning, for a longer lasting candle.

  • Assure the wax is completely cooled and hardened, trim your wick and clean out any wick bits before you relight your candle. 

  • If there is black soot around the lip of the container, remove it with a damp cloth or paper towel and ensure your wick is trimmed with each use.

  • Never leave your candle unattended, and burn on a flat service away from drafts or flammable objects. Do not attempt to move your candle whilst lit. 

  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
