Candle Care

Crystal Candle Tips

Δ To get the most out of your crystal candles, trim the wick to 1/4″ before each use. This will help prevent soot and extend the life of the candle.

Δ Light for 1-2 hours until the wax until the wax pools to the edge of the glass before blowing out – especially for the first burn. Otherwise you will get what is called ‘tunneling’ – when the wax pools in the center – and that wastes all the wax stuck to the sides of the glass.

Δ If crystals fall onto wicks wait until wax cools down and use a spoon to guide the crystal back to the side of the glass

Δ Burn for no more than 4 hours at a time

Δ Always keep candles in sight when in use, never leave unattended


Retrieving Your Crystals

As your candle melts, your crystals will naturally sink into the wax pool, continuing to release their good vibrations. Once your candle has entirely burned out, use a spoon to carefully retrieve your new crystals. Once you have removed them from the jar, you can gently wash off the wax residue with hot water, soap, and pat dry with a clean towel.

Ideas for reusing your crystals

Δ Create an alter and adorn with crystals
Δ Make a crystal grid
Δ Carry in your pocket for energetic healing
Δ Add to your garden or a house plant
Δ Use for meditation, chakra healing, or blessing ceremonies


Repurposing Your Jar

Once your candle has burned down to 1/4″, extinguish the flame by gently blowing out, or using a candle snuffer. Once cooled, you can chip out the wax and the wick with a spoon. Rinse remaining wax out with hot water and soap. Our jars are really cute, so we hope you will reuse them for something magical. Be an eco-goddess!
