Hello there! Our genuine wish is that you enjoy our candles to the fullest! Please read the important safety precautions and candle maintenance instructions listed below.

First Burn

When using your candle for the first time, burn it for at least two to three hours, or long enough to completely melt the top layer of wax. By doing this, you can avoid tunneling.

Candle tunneling is the result of a candle's center burning down and leaving a hard ring around the perimeter made of unmelted wax. As a result, the middle of the candle forms an indent or circular pit. If the tunnel gets deep, lighting the wick may eventually become impossible.

Trimming Wick

Before each burn, cut the hanji wick to 2-3mm to ensure the flame is at the right height for the candle. Untrimmed wicks may result in black smoke, discoloration (blackened wax), or over burning. We advise using nail clippers or wick trimmers.

Hanji wicks burns exceptionally well and steadily. If you notice a strong dancing fame, your wick needs to be trimmed. Try to keep the wick's length between 2-3 mm.

In the unlikely event that you cut them too short and the wick becomes submerged in the melted wax, try to pour out the melted wax. Transfer the wax to a paper plate or bowl. You can also use paper towels or Q-tips to absorb the melted wax.
