Every House of Saku odorless candle will be the heart of a ritual that will fill your home with warmth, simplicity, natural beauty, and ritual magic. Following these instructions will ensure that every moment your candle burns is full of peace and relaxation.
RITUAL OF BURNING
We use carefully designed packaging because we believe that the unboxing experience is as important as the burning process. Every House of Saku candle is wrapped in silk paper stamped with the mark of the House of Saku. This is then boxed in a recycled paper package that will protect your candle in transit. We want your entire experience, from the very first moments you spend with your House of Saku candle, to be full of wonder.
TRIM THE WICK REGULARLY
The wick should never exceed 1/4 inch. A short wick ensures a cleaner and steadier flame. We also recommend trimming the wick every 2-3 hours during the burning process. Try to keep the wick erect when not burning to ensure that your candle burns evenly.
SAFE DISTANCE BETWEEN BURNING CANDLES
Place lit candles at least 4 inches apart to prevent them from melting one another and causing spills.
Don't burn your candle for longer than 4 hours at a time. For longer burn sessions, we recommend you extinguish the candle flame, let the wax harden, trim the wick, and then start another burn session.
- Do not leave burning candles unattended
- Keep them away from flammable objects
- Keep them away from children and pets
- Do not place candles near other heat sources
- Avoid using candles in drafty areas
HOW TO CORRECTLY END YOUR BURN SESSION
Use a candle snuffer to extinguish your candle. We do not recommend blowing out your candle, as this can spread sparks or drops of hot wax. If you want to move the candle to another spot, wait until it has cooled down and the wax has hardened.
A candle that has burned for long enough may form a "tunnel." This is normal, especially for tall candles, and creates a thin barrier between the tunnelling candle and the outside. To ensure that the walls melt down as the candle burns and continue to assume new and beautiful forms, we recommend monitoring your candle as it burns. For the first few times you burn your candle, we recommend doing so for longer so that the melted wax reaches the wall. Sooner or later, any tall candle - especially a square one - will begin to tunnel. You can break pieces of the wall off to form new shapes and free the candlelight within.
IN THE EVENT OF A CANDLE SPILL:
These candles are made of natural wax. They can sometimes spill out. If you follow these instructions, this will be a very rare occurrence. If the wax does spill out, however, do not immediately touch the wax. First, extinguish the candle. Allow the wax to cool. Because the wax has no chemical additives, it is easy to remove from most surfaces without any stains once it cools. Once you've removed the wax, wipe the surface with a moist cloth to remove the smallest remaining fragments of wax.
