What kind of wick's do the brands featured on www.saison.com.au use?
The industry standard is for all-cotton wicks. A handy hint when burning a candle is to trim the wick to ¼” after each use. For a clean, smoke free burn do not allow the trimmings or debris to amass in the candle wax.
Do candles featured on www.saison.com.au tunnel or burn unevenly?
If burned according to instructions candles should not tunnel. For candles that have more than 4-5cm in diameter it's best to burn the candle for no less than 2 hours at a time, but no more than 3 on one occasion. (For Capri Blue Signature Jars the recommended burn time is 4-6 hours). When burning votives or smaller sized candles, Saison suggests allowing the candle to burn for no less then one hour, but no more then two. Think of it this way – candles have a memory. Wherever it stops burning the first time, it will continue to stop there every time you burn it causing it to tunnel if it has not liquefied all the way across. After blowing out the flame,trim the wick/s to a no less than half centimeter and ensure the wicks are left in an upright position in the centre of the glass. Any shorter and the flame will not be large enough the melt the wax to the edges and you may find wax covers the wicks causing the candle to extinguish. Once the wax is solid then re-light the candle. Never leave a candle burning unattended. Follow these instructions and you should have a candle that burns evenly, cleanly and efficiently every time!
My candle seems to be 'sweating'... is this normal?
Climatic fluctuations especially humidity can sometimes cause candles to sweat. Sweating is completely natural in temperature variations. Be assured the candle will still burn evenly, cleanly and most importantly fragrantly.
What type of wax is used in the candles featured on www.saison.com.au?
VOLUSPA - a natural wax blend made from apricot and coconut kernel SIMPATICO - Soy and vegetable wax BARR CO - Soy and vegetable wax CANDLES - high quality soy wax CAPRI BLUE - high quality soy wax SEA SALT CANDLE - high quality soy wax SALUS - high quality soy wax
After my candle has burned, a blackened colour appears on the glass.
Saison recommends trimming the wick after each use and ensure the candle is dust free and away from any drafts. If soot is present use a cloth moistened with water to clean the glass. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Also be sure to follow brand-specific burning instructions carefully.
My candle is not pure white in colour, and has a yellow hue to it. Is the candle ok to burn?
Fragrance oils influence the colour of wax. In particular candles with citrus notes will have a yellow hue to the wax. This is normal, safe and will not effect the performance of the candle.
