STORAGE Store candles in a cool dry place below 25 Degrees Celsius and away from direct sunlight to avoid sweating and discolouration. Cover candle when not in use to avoid dust build up. If slight frosting occurs on the surface of the candle do not be alarmed, this is completely normal with natural soy wax.
USING THE MELTS Simply place one melt in your melt warmer or oil burner with a tealight candle underneath. Using the same or similar scented tea light will create a much stronger fragrance. If the melt is too large for your burner, break into smaller pieces prior to use. Do not move the burner until it has cooled and wax has set. Avoid burning for longer than four hours at a time and never leave a lit candle unattended.
BURNING THE CANDLE Trim your wicks to 6mm before lighting each time, this helps to avoid smoke and accelerated burning time. Place on a stable, heat-resistant surface away from curtains, drafts, and flammable materials. Never burn for more than 4 hours and always allow the candle to cool down and wax to harden before moving. Keep wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times. Never leave a lit candle unattended.
WHEN THE CANDLE LEAKS As these are novelty candles, it is almost certain they will leak. When your candle starts to leak, extinguish the flame. As the wax begins to solidify use the soft wax to seal the leak. If your candle is burning too much on one side you may need to adjust the wick slightly, simply recentre the wick using a pair of tweezers while the wax is still soft. Do not relight until wax has cooled down and hardened completely.
SAVE THE CANDLE This is particularly useful in the medium to larger sized skull candles. Once the candle has burned down enough to your liking, extinguish the flame. After it has cooled down and wax has hardened, place a tealight candle in the skull. Burning the tealight inside allows you to continue to enjoy your skull candle without him melting away.
