How do I properly burn a Pillar Candle?
beeswax pillar candles Customers often ask: Why does my Beeswax Pillar Candle burn a hole right down the centre and the candle won`t relight? Pillars are one of our most popular items, so we think it`s very important to give you tips on how you can make the most out of your Beeswax Pillar Candle. Don`t burn a Beeswax Pillar Candle for a short period of time. Pillars are designed to burn for long periods of time: at least 3-4 hours each time you light it. If you prefer burning your candle for a shorter time try Candlesticks.
If the flame is too large, it means the wick needs a trim. Extinguish the candle by dunking the wick into the wax pool, trim the wick, straighten and relight. If a `carbon cap` globule forms on the tip, trim the wick.
Instead of blowing out the candle, dunk the wick into the wax pool and straighten. This ensures an easier relight and prevents the wick from smoking. When you light your candle, light the base of the wick not the tip.
