-When burn 2 or more pillar candles at the same time, ensure there is a 10cm distance between 2 candles so that each candle can have enough space to burn and reduce the risk of the candle falling.
Can I burn the candle all the way down to the bottom ?
We recommend burning the pillar candle for at least 20 mins during the first burn to allow an even “ burning pool” to be formed. For subsequent uses, we do not recommend burning the candle for more than 2 hours for a single time.
Stop burning the candle when the wax burns lower than 1cm. For safety concerns, we do not recommend burning the candle all the way down to the bottom to get the very last scent from the remaining wax as the container may become too hot and the wicks may become unstable.
