Candle Safety

Looking after your candle

The most important tip is for the very first time you light your hoYo Candle. On the first burn, always let the candle burn to the outside edge, this is because soy wax has a memory.  If the wax is not allowed to melt from edge to edge it will create a hole in the centre of the candle. If this is not done the wick will continue to tunnel and burn that way for the life of the candle.

Each time you burn your hoYo candle, allow the entire top layer to become a fragrant pool of liquid wax and you’ll get the best scent possible.

Keep the wick trimmed to about 5mm at all times.

Keep the cut wick out of the wax as this can affect the burn. 

Candles should not be burned for more than about 3 hours at a time, it is recommended that after this time, the candle is extinguished, allowed to cool for 2 hours, and then trimmed before relighting.

Avoid placing your candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lighting, such as a spotlight. Candles will fade if they are exposed to bright light for an extended period of time.

When cool and not in use keep the lid on the candle to hold the scent in and keep the dust out

Candle safety

Always burn well away from draughts, other heat sources, and anything flammable.

Make sure burning candles are ALWAYS out of reach of children and pets.

Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Always place your candle on a heat resistant surface.

Extinguish your candle when 1.5cm of wax remains at the bottom of the jar. This will prevent possible heat damage to the counter/surface or container itself. The glass can get hot on the bottom as the flame nears the base of the jar and most of the wax has been consumed.
