Cone candle

Cone Candles

1. GETTING STARTED

For the best burning experience, trim the wick of your Candle Kiosk cone candle to 6mm before you light it, and burn no longer than 3 hours at a time. Every 3 hours, or if the flame gets too high, extinguish the flame, let the candle cool down, trim the wick, and relight.

Our cone candles have been designed to burn evenly all the way down without dripping. If they are exposed to a draught and dripping occurs, either remove the source of the draught or place the candle on a drip tray.

2. CANDLE CARE

  1. Trim wick to 6mm before lighting
  2. Place burning candles 10cm apart
  3. Avoid drafts to prevent drip & smoke
  4. Use a heat-proof non-flammable base
  5. Don’t burn for more than 3 hrs at a time
  6. Don’t burn a candle all the way down

Pillar candle

Pillar Candles

1. GETTING STARTED

To get the most out of your Candle Kiosk pillar candle, trim the wick to 6mm & burn it for at least 3 hours the first time you light it to maximise the size of the burn pool.

This is because the size of the wax pool during the first burn determines the life of the candle. Subsequent burns won't melt the wax beyond the initial wax pool, so if it didn't melt close enough to the edge of the candle, it could leave a thick, unused mantle ('tunnelling').

Textured pillar candle

Textured Candles

1. GETTING STARTED

For best results, trim the wick to 10mm & burn your Candle Kiosk textured column candle for at least 5 hours the first time you light it.

Due to its large diameter, this candle can be kept burning for long periods of time. Should tunnelling occur, 'hug' the candle by pushing the soft wax edge inwards towards the flame, so that it has a chance to melt.

If the flame size diminishes, extinguish the flame and carefully pour out excess wax while it is liquid.
