Molded Candle Care and Burn Instructions
Thank you for your purchase from Rebecca Holt Jewelry! In order to make your molded candle crater so the wax doesn’t drip down the sides, babysit the wick when it first burns. Wait until the burn pattern gets about 1/4” from the edge and then blow it out, let it cool and cut the wick down. When you re-light it, the crater will begin downwards and you won’t need to worry about a catch! You may have to babysit the crater you want the first few times of burning. If you have a pillar candle, be very careful about making sure the wick is cut down periodically so the burn pool doesn’t get too far to the edge even after the first initial burning. Soy wax doesn’t cool at the same rate as paraffin and will not cool as it drips downward, it is oil based and will pool/continue melting.
NOTE: This excludes pyramid shaped candles. These won’t start cratering until the burn pool is down far enough for there to be an unburned edge around the pool. A catch or plastic/glass surface will be needed for this shape.

Soy wax is natural and a great hand lotion, if you get some of the hot wax on your fingers, rub it into your hands for a great moisturizer!
