Getting the most out of your Subluceo candle


The first time you light your candle allow the wax to melt fully across the top so that it reaches the edges of the jar and the whole surface is liquid. This stage is important, soy wax has a ‘memory’ so this ensures that the candle burns evenly and does not tunnel. 

Before lighting your candle trim the wooden wick to 3-5mm.

Each time you light your candle make sure to break off the black burnt part of the wooden wick. You can use our wick trimmers for this or simply break off the wick off with your fingers when cool. If you do not snap off the burnt wick the candle will not burn efficiently and will not stay lit.

When your candle has finished burning it will leave roughly 1cm of wax at the bottom of the jar. Do not feel hard done by, you still get the same burn time. This is a safety feature to prevent the glass jar from cracking.​


Burn on a heat resistant, flat surface and always keep away from drafts and flammable items.Never leave a candle burning continuously for more than 4 hours.

Most importantly - relax and enjoy the crackle!
