Our wood wick candles are a little different. We’re sure you will love the crackling sound and mesmerising flame, so please read the following tips to ensure a better, longer lasting burn time from your Nevé candle.
LIGHT MY FIRE
The aim is to get an even burn, so always light the wick on both ends. We recommend using a lighter to ensure your wood wick catches easily on first light.
Take the time to enjoy your first burn; you’ll want to wait until the wax has completely melted to the edge of the candle before extinguishing the flame to avoid creating a ‘memory ring’. These rings will continue to tunnel through for the life of a candle – so it’s best to burn properly the first time around.
To get an even burn every time, keep your wick trimmed between 3.5mm – 4.5mm and remove any wick debris before lighting your candle. You can 'snap' the burnt wood, or trim it using our wick trimmers or a pair of nail clippers.
If the candle has been burning for a long period of time and the flame is getting too low, you may need to tap off any excess ash or burnt wood along the top of the wick. However, be careful to never break off the entire charred wick as it won’t leave you with enough wick to relight the candle.
A FEW RULES
Open flames require caution, so be sure to place your candle on a heat resistant surface away from drafts, other heat sources and anything flammable. Keep the candles well out of the reach of little ones (on two legs or four). Never leave a burning candle unattended and always extinguish the flame and allow the candle wax to cool completely before moving it.
Please note that candles are not intended to be burned for more than four hours at a time. It’s time to replace your candle when you only have 1cm of candle left. Leave at least 10cm space between burning candles.
