Candle & Wax Care

The Candle Cure Information Page
What does it mean to "cure"? 
"Curing" time refers to the amount of time necessary for the wax and fragrance oils to properly bind to ensure optimum candle (and wax) quality. Ideally, candles and wax items cure for about 14 days before burning. If you burn your candle before its "cure-by-date", it will burn fine physically. But, the scent will not be as strong as if you had waited the proper length of time.
Good things come to those who wait. Candles are no different.
If your wax items require further curing, it will be sent with a small Care Card which will include your "cure-by-date". Each Care Card will have instructions on how to properly care for your wax items to ensure maximum quality and performance.
Handling & Care The Rusty Sapphire
A few notables:
  • Before lighting your candle each time, make sure to trim the wick to 1/4 inch.
  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • Do not burn for more than 4 hours at a time.
  • Do not leave your candle or wax melts burning unattended.
  • Avoid drafts or noticeable air currents when burning. This will help prevent additional sooting and uneven burning.
  • Always place candle on a flat, flame retardant and uncluttered surface.
  • Do not touch or move a burning candle. Please extinguish the flame, move, and then re-light.
  • When a candle has less than 1/4 inch of wax left in the candle, it is finished. Please, DO NOT continue to burn this candle. Failure to do so may cause the vessel to shatter or crack under the extreme temperature shifts.
  • Allow wax to fully melt on all sides of the vessel to ensure better performance for the next burn. This excludes the metal tin candles. Those are purposefully created to burn a little lighter on the sides because the metal tin could overheat.
Our candles and wax melts are all hand crafted and hand poured, which means there will always be a little variation between candles.
