CUTTING WICKS

Cutting your candles wick is an important element to ensure mushrooming doesn’t occur. When you receive on of our candles be sure to cut your wick so it’s no shorter than 7mm to ensure a nice even burn of your candle. If you notice mushrooming occur, don’t panic as it is perfectly normal, but do ensure you cut the mushroom off before the next burn to reduce the risks of a wax pool fire occurring – a wax pool fire is where the candle appears to ignite as a result of any bits of the untrimmed mushroom landing into the wax.
