General product information about our popular jar candles
Our scented wax jars are filled with hot liquid wax. When cooling down, the wax in the jar solidifies and contracts, so that the scented wax lies loosely in the jar.
During transport, "air spots" can occur as well as small pieces of wax flaking off and spreading in the jar, which however liquefy again during burning.
The burning quality and fragrance are not affected by this.
If you follow the instructions below when burning, you will have a lot of fun with the scented wax jar:
- if burning candles are placed on sensitive surfaces, we recommend always using a heat-resistant base.
- shorten the wicks to approx. 0.5 cm before each relighting.
- please make sure that the wicks have enough distance to the edge of the glass. If a wick is too close to the edge of the glass, extinguish the flame and return the wick to its original position before the wax cools down.
- After each extinguishing, wipe off any soot deposits on the glass with a cloth (the soot deposits may vary depending on the colour, scent and burning time).
- For extinguishing, we recommend using a candle extinguisher or the metal lid.
- There should be no debris in the wax when burning (match and wick residues as well as wick blossoms).
- Do not light or extinguish the scented wax jar when there is a wax residue of approx. 1.3 cm (see note on the packaging) for safety reasons (heat build-up at the base of the jar), as this is also the end of the burning time.
