Caring for Your Rapeseed Coconut Wax Candles

At Kettleby Kitchen, we understand the importance of properly caring for your scented wax products to ensure they last longer and provide the best experience. Just like any other candles, rapeseed coconut wax candles require a little TLC to maintain their quality and fragrance over time. Here are some tips on how to look after your candles:

1. Trim the Wick: Before each use, trim the wick of your candle to about 5mm in length. This helps to prevent excessive smoking and ensures a clean, even burn.

2. Allow for Proper Burning: When lighting your candle for the first time, allow it to burn until the wax melts evenly across the surface. This prevents tunnelling and ensures that the candle burns evenly throughout its life.  Remember not to burn your candle for more than four hours at a time. 

3. Avoid Drafts: Place your candle away from draughty areas to prevent uneven burning and sooting. This helps maintain a steady flame and prolongs the life of your candle.

4. Use a Snuffer: Extinguish your candle with a snuffer instead of blowing it out. This helps to prevent hot wax from splattering and keeps the wick in good condition for the next use.

5. Store Properly: When not in use, store your candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This helps preserve their fragrance and prevents them from becoming discoloured or warped.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your rapeseed coconut wax candles from Kettleby Kitchen continue to delight your senses for many hours of burn time.
