Elume Pillar Candle Care Blog

Pillar candle care:

The elume pillar candles are the originals, a signature range that we are extremely proud of. In what took months of scientific experimentation, Mark (elume Director) used his science background to develop the unique elume snowflake effect for what our pillar range is admired for. It was through sheer hard work and determination that Mark developed a product that is still as popular now as it was in 1999.

Our signature pillar candles, handcrafted in our Sydney factory, are made with high-quality paraffin wax and will offer endless hours of charming opulence with some basic care.

When lighting the pillar candle for the first time, allow burning until the wax melts close to the edge of the candle, approximately 1cm. Be sure to set aside a few hours to allow for the proper burn time. Creating this wax pool will allow your candle to last longer and not tunnel down the middle. Keep wax pool free of debris. Before every use, trim candle wick to approximately 6mm. Trimmed wicks promote a tranquil and balanced flame which means an even burn. Avoid blowing your candle out and instead extinguish with a snuffer. When the candle only has 1cm left, discontinue use. Place the candle on a non-flammable holder and remove labels. Place away from draughts, direct sunlight and out of reach from children, pets and flammable materials. Do not exceed a burning time of 4 hours and never leave a burning candle unattended.
