Candle Care

Weird Wax Co. Candle Care 101

Due to the fact that our products are meant to be lit on fire, proper care is essential. 


    Before burn

    • Remove wick tags.
    • Trim the wick to at least  ⅛ inch.
    • Remove any charred wood/carbon debris from the wick and/or candle wax.

    During burn

    • Always burn candles in sight and never leave unattended.
    • Keep away from wind and air vents as well as flammables including children, pets, curtains, and carpets.
    • When ready to extinguish, avoid blowing candles out, use a snuffer to prevent distributing hot wax or flames into your environment. Never use water to extinguish a candle flame. 
    • Never burn to the bottom of the vessel or candle, leave a small amount of wax at the bottom.  

    After burn

    • Allow the candle to cool completely and harden before reburning, moving or touching it.
    • Store in a cool, dry place away from dust and light. 


    Special instructions for MOLD CANDLES such as pillars and novelty pumpkins, rainbows, etc:

    • Do not burn mold candles for more than 2 hours at a time. 
    • Only burn mold candles on a candle holder or a heat safe plate.
    • Do not burn in water.

    Special instructions for VESSEL CANDLES:

    • Do not burn candles for more than four hours at a time. 
    • During the first burn, prevent tunneling by burning the candle until a wax pool forms across the entire diameter of the vessel. 

    Special instructions for WAX MELTS:

    • Only burn as intended in a candle warmer. Please note that some candle warmers may not be compatible as they may not have sufficient heating capabilities.

    • Fragrances, UV light, dust, pet hair, and other factors may naturally discolor wax over time.
