Why is my candle tunnelling?


Candle burning can be a bit of an art and the slighest factor can alter the burn. One of the most important factors is if you haven't burnt your candle long enough on each burn (especially the first) this will cause tunnelling. We advise you burn our candles for at least 3-4 hours each burn to make sure the melt pool is even across the whole of the candle surface right up to the vessel edge. If you do not do this 9 times out of 10 your candle with tunnel all the way down.




Why is my candle sweating?


With our candles being made from soy wax they are a natural product which means with temperature change it can cause them to sweat just like you an I. This is nothing to worry about and is normal and doesn't effect the burn of the candle.
