Becks & Co. Candle Care
The first time lighting your candle is important! Hold your lighter or match on the wick for 5-10 seconds to initiate a strong flame fuelled by the melting wax.
Allow your candle to burn for a minimum of 1.5-2 hours or until the wax melts evenly to the edges of the glass. This will set a good tone for the remainder of your burn time!
Wooden wicks require attention in between usage. Before lighting your wick, gently break off any ash or burnt wood (usually a small amount) and light per usual.
If your wax melt pool does not reach the edge of the glass after an hour, you can blow it out and try to remove any excess ash/burnt wood to promote a bigger flame. Give your candle some time to work its magic!
If your candle has been exposed to cold temperatures, let it settle at room temperature until lighting. Tunneling can occur when the wax is cold (when your candle doesn't burn evenly to the edges of the glass).
We encourage mindfulness when having candles in your home. This includes keeping them out of harms way from kids + pets + flammable items.
