Candle Care Tips

Before Burning

  • When lighting for the first time burn until wax melts across entire surface to the sides of vessel (this prevents tunneling, and creates an even burn for the duration of the candle’s ‘life’) This may take up to 2-4 hours.
  • Prior to burning your candle, trim the wick at least ¼ inch. This prevents uneven burning, dripping or flaring.
  • Avoid drafts, vents or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting, and excessive dripping.
  • Burn for 2-3 hours each time you light the candle. This will help the candle burn evenly, and remember to trim wicks before each burn. 
  • Always store your candles in a cool, dark and dry place.  Avoid placing your candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lighting.

While Burning

  • To maximize scent throw, burn in desired space for 30 mins with the door closed. Open windows and doors will disperse scent.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended or lit while sleeping. If you are going to leave the room or go to bed, be sure to extinguish all candles first.
  • Please keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
  • Never touch or move a burning candle. Never move a candle container when the wax is liquified.
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For safety measures, stop burning a candle when there is ¼ inch of wax left in the vessel.
  • If burning multiple candles, place each candle at least three inches apart from one another. This is to ensure they don’t melt one another, or create their own drafts.
  • Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Before re-lighting, let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts.
  • Use extra caution when burning candles during a power outage. Battery-powered lights like flashlights are much safer sources of light during a power failure.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets. Do not place lit candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets or anyone else.
  • If soot ever forms on the inside of the vessel, extinguish candle, wait for it to cool, then wipe with a clean damp cloth. Trim wick and relight.
  • Trim the candle wick after each burn. This is very important to prevent the candles from smoking on the next burn or from burning the sides of the vessel.

After Burning

  • Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle, if available, as it’s the safest way to prevent hot wax from splattering.
  • Do not use water to extinguish a candle, this can cause the hot wax to splatter and could break the container.
  • Before leaving the room, make sure your candle is completely out and there is no glow coming from the wick ember.
  • Do not touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
  • Remove dust and fingerprints from a candle by gently rubbing the surface with a piece of nylon or a soft cloth. The cloth can be dry or slightly dampened with water.

Wax Melt Tips

Adorkable Emporium wax melts are suitable for use in tea light burners and electric burners.  You may find that with tealight burners the scent given off is stronger due to the higher heat compared to electric burners.  With an electric burner you may find you can get more use from individual melts due to the lower temp the bulb / heat plate gives off.

How to use

  • Remove from packaging
  • Place into burner well.  As the well heats up the wax will begin to warm up and melt, releasing the scent into your home.
  • When the tea light has been extinguished or the burner is turned off, the wax will re-harden in the well ready for the next use.
  • Unlike candles, wax melts do not evaporate.  You can continue to use the wax multiple times until there is no longer any scent throw.  Wax melt scents last about 8-10 hours, but for maximum freshness just dispose of the wax when there is no scent left.
  • When you are ready to discard the leftover wax, heat the well to loosen the wax from the surface then pop it out and wipe with a clean napkin to dispose of it. You can also acquire wax melt warmer liners for fast and easy disposal.

Important Stuff

  • Always use within sight, and never leave unattended
  • Always ensure that you do not overfill your well
  • Keep melted wax away from pets and children
  • Do not eat
  • Never pour melted wax down drains or sinks
  • Wax / burner will remain hot after the tea light has been extinguished / burner switched off
  • Do not try to move the burner until it has cooled completely and the wax has hardened
  • Do not add water or fragrance oils to wax melt well
  • Keep wax clear of debris
  • Only ever use unscented tea lights as fragrance ones burn too hot and may interfere with your own wax melt
  • Only use standard sized 4hr tea lights.  Never use the larger 8hr tea lights or multiples as these can cause the burners to break
  • Never place burner in freezer to help dislodge wax.  This can weaken structure of the burner
  • Ensure that the surface under the burner is heatproof
