Candle Care

All our candles have been designed to burn calmly and evenly all the way down. They are designed & developed to meet Australian, EU & US specifications, and are independently tested for safety and quality. We use high quality German dye and wicks.

Read our tips below on how to make the most of your Candle Kiosk candle experience.

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. 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 stand steady and burn evenly. To avoid dripping, do not expose them to a draught and do not place them too close together. If dripping occurs, remove the source of the draught, place candles further apart or place the candle on a drip tray. Always make sure to place candles on a non-flammable, stable surface.

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 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 until the wax pool reaches the edge of the candle (this takes at least 3-4 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 Pillars

1. GETTING STARTED

For best results, trim the wick to 10mm & burn your Candle Kiosk textured pillar 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; you can light it in the morning and keep it burning all day. Should tunnelling occur, 'hug' the candle by pushing the soft wax edge at the top of the candle 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.
