Our handcrafted candles use wooden wicks which are a bit different from the traditional cotton wick. They burn longer, cleaner and gives a cozy ambiance – but they do require a bit of extra care. Here are our tips and recommendations to get the most out of your Menari candle.
- Always trim your wick before each use by removing the charred wood from previous burns, if you don’t, the wick may not stay lit long enough to fuel the flame and it might extinguish itself. To trim the wooden wick, you could use a wick trimmer, or just break the charred bit with your fingers.
- Be sure to allow the wax to melt across the entire diameter of your candle on every burn – this helps prevent tunneling, which can impact how well the candle burns. We suggest burning for at least 2 hours but no longer than 4 hours at a time (to prevent carbon buildup).
These simple care tips will help your candle burn clean and long for the entire lifecycle of your Menari candle.
