Home County Candle co. candles are made with natural soy wax, which is biodegradable and vegan friendly. A 200g candle burn time is 45-50 hours and the wooden crackle wicks should be trimmed to 5mm before each burn.
1. 2-3 hour first burn - to avoid tunneling, always ensure the melted wax reaches the edges of the glass on all sides on first burn. This is because wax has a 'memory' and will always melt the same way it did on the first burn. Therefore, as long as the first burn reaches the edges of the glass you'll get the best use of the wax for the rest of your candle's lifespan. Nobody likes wasted wax after all!
2. Trim your wick - trim your wick to approx. 5mm before each burn. This will promote an even burn and steady flame, helping you to get the most out of your candle. No need to invest in expensive wick trimmers though - nail clippers work just as well for trimming wooden wicks!
3. Keep out of draughts - always burn your candles out of the way of draughts, which can decrease burn time, cause uneven burning and reduced scent throw.
