Candle Safety

A naked flame is a beautiful and captivating thing, but it is also potentially dangerous. Thus we ask that all of our customers exercise great care and observe the following safety guidelines when using our products. In addition to making your enjoyment of our products safer, following these simple rules will prevent the production of excess smoke and soot, caused by untrimmed wicks and unregulated air currents.

  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.

  • Never leave a lit candle unattended.

  • Keep away from draughts.

  • Place on heat proof surface away from furniture, curtains etc...

  • Trim the wick to 5mm before each burn.

  • Allow a full melt pool to form before extinguishing, this will prevent tunnelling.

  • Do not burn for more than 4 hours at any one time.

  • Keep the candle clear of any wick trimmings or debris.

  • Never lean across a burning candle, or place under shelves or other surfaces

  • Do not burn the candle to the very bottom of the glass as this can cause them to overheat.

‘SMOKING’ OR ‘SOOTING’ CANDLES

Coney Wood Candles products are high quality, handcrafted items which do not produce excess soot or smoke when burned in accordance with the guidelines detailed above. The most common reasons for a ‘smoking’ or ‘sooting’ candle are untrimmed wicks and placement in or near to unregulated air currents (draughts). Unburned particles of carbon will escape if a flame is disturbed or made to flicker. To minimize the smoke or soot released from any candle, users should always trim wicks to shorter than 0.5cm / 0.20” before lighting, never place candles in or near unregulated air currents (draughts), and never move a burning candle. In the unlikely event that your Coney Wood candle continues to smoke or soot after you have followed the steps above, please contact us for further guidance, by emailing rachelcwcandles@hotmail.com or by telephoning  07894661115

‘SETTING’ THE MELT POOL

All container candles will ‘remember’ the manner in which they were first burned, and will tend to replicate this behaviour every time they are lit thereafter. This ‘memory’ will only be problematic in instances where the candle is burned for an insufficient period of time on the first burn to allow a full melt pool to form. Since the candle’s future ability to ‘throw’ scent is directly related to the surface area of the melt pool, it is important that during the first burn you allow a full melt pool to form. We suggest that the first burn of any container candle should be around 45 minutes for every inch in candle diameter, up to a maximum burn time of 4 hours. If a jar candle is burned for short periods every time it is lit, only a small melt pool will form, making it very likely that the candle will ‘tunnel’, gradually excavating a core down through the candle following the path of the wick.
