Gem Candles Information
Gem Candles are made from 100% natural wax blend of mineral paraffin, soya and vegetable derivatives. This blend provides a good burn performance and lasting fragrance. The 200 gram candles burn for 40 hours and the 750 gram candles burn for 100 hours.
Always store Gem Candles in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight as this could damage the structure of the wax and affect the way your candle performs.
Gem Candles burn best in still air. Make sure they are placed away from open windows and doors.
Before lighting always ensure your Gem Candle wick is trimmed to approximately 5mm. This will prevent the candle from smoking and ensure a better scent diffusion. A reduced flame size could prevent possible thermal shock to the glass. Please make sure the wick is centered and if the wick becomes off-centre at any time, extinguish the flame.
Set the candle memory to get the best possible burn time from your Gem Candle. The life of the Gem Candle is determined by the size of the wax pool on the initial burn. When you light your candle for the first time do not extinguish it until an even liquid wax pool has been created right to the edge of the glass. This can take between 3-4 hours. Your Gem Candle will then burn evenly all the way down. If you extinguish your Gem Candle before a complete wax pool has been formed “tunnelling” will occur and you will be left with an outer rim of wasted wax.
The candle wax pool should be clear of any debris prior to burning. Match heads and wick remnants in the wax pool can lead to a Gem Candle flaring due to the debris igniting the wax!
