When lighting your Coastal Lights Natural Soy Candle for the first time allow a ‘pool’ to create to the edge of the glass vessel. This may take up to an hour depending on the diameter of the candle, allowing the candle to burn evenly from the first light and avoid future tunnelling.

To extinguish the flame immerse the wick in the melted wax so as not to destroy the ambient scent that has been released into your room by a ‘smoking’ wick. If needed trim the wick to approximately 1/2cm to maintain a clean burning candle.

Keep candle free of any foreign materials including matches and wick trimmings. Only burn the candle on a level, fire resistant surface. Do not burn the candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Always burn candle within sight and always keep out of the reach of children and pets.
