Candle care.

Light it up

 

When you light your candle, it is best to allow the entire surface of wax to melt before extinguishing.

This will prevent the candle from tunnelling, when tunnelling happens you are left with unused wax around the side of the jar and a loss of aroma.

Burn

Ynys Aroma candles are made using a wooden wick which has many benefits, wooden wicks are more sustainable than cotton wicks, made from native, sappy fruit trees and sourced from FSC certified mills.

They burn more slowly, allowing you to enjoy your candle for longer and produce less soot for a cleaner burn.

As they burn, they give a comforting crackling sound, adding a soothing ambience to your home.

It is essential to trim the wick between each burn.

This simply means removing the excess burnt wood from the tip of the wick.

You can do this using scissors or your fingertips (just make sure it has cooled).

If the wick isn't trimmed, it may not light up next time or it might quickly self-extinguish.

Recycle or repurpose

When you have finished your candle, recycle the glass jar and aluminium lid accordingly with your local recycling guidelines. You can alternatively repurpose your jar, perhaps to pot a small plant or tidy your bits and bobs.

To clean the jar: Once the wax has reached the bottom of the wick, carefully poor hot water into the jar to melt any remaining wax then discard it safely.

Coconut and rapeseed wax is biodegradable so you can add it to a compost bin.

Wash the jar with warm soapy water and it will be ready to recycle or to use again.
