Extend the life of your favourite candles with our tips for candle care and safety…

We stock the Crystal Journey Reiki charged candle in medium pillar, large pillars, and votives. We suggest that you always charge your candle before lighting it by using the affirmation supplied with the candle and then expand upon it based on your specific situation. Sit in a quiet place, hold the candle in your hands and visualize the area in your life you want changed. This will personalize your connection with the candle and allow the needed energy to come to you in a more direct manner.

Safety First

Trim the wich.and ensure the wick is kept trimmed to approximately 5mm in length to control the flame height and burn time

Keep the wax pool free of any contaminants

Avoid burning candles in draughty areas to encourage an even burn

Burn candles for 3-4 hours at a time to achieve optimum burn and longevity

Never leave a burning candle unattended or around children and pets.

Achieving an even burn… It’s all in the first burn!

The most important rule applies to the very first time you light your candle. For the first burn, you must let the candle burn long enough to ensure the wax melts all the way to the edges of the candle.

It may sound crazy, but wax has a memory. The first time you light and enjoy your new candle sets the stage for how well the candle will perform. If you don’t burn your candle long enough on the first burn, then the next time you burn your candle it will only ever burn up to that point, which is how tunnelling happens. This is why we cannot stress the importance of the first burn enough as tunnelling can easily be avoided if the first burn is done correctly.

We hope you have found this post useful and informative.
