Each unique KOBO candle aroma has been consciously developed to create a multi-dimensional, enriching ambience. Every hand-poured KOBO candle has been carefully created and tested to burn with maximum efficiency to the bottom.
Here is the important bit
For optimum performance, burn candles for 2-5 hours at a time.
This is especially important for the first few burns. This will allow the candle to create a wide burn pool and melt evenly. As the candle melts down, it will create a burn pool to the edges of the glass. This is the desired effect.
A successive number of short burns may create a tunnelling effect.
Tunnelling happens when the candle is extinguished after short burns and is not able to create a wide burn pool. If this does happen it can often be set right by leaving the length of the wick longer by not trimming it prior to burning. It also may be necessary to allow the candle to burn longer than usual until the burn pool is widened.
• Trim the wick to 2cm prior to each burn.
• Keep out of drafts and rotate periodically.
• Keep out of direct sunlight.
If the candle starts to pool to one side more than the other it may be the result of a draft, uneven surface or a leaning wick. Remedy this by adjusting the wick to the correct position.
If you are experiencing smoke from the wick, it is most likely due to not trimming. The wicks may give a small degree of smoke when just lit. Once they attain ample heating they will burn without smoke. If smoke persists it is most likely a wick that needs trimming or a breeze that is not allowing ample heat to generate.
Following the steps above will maximise the enjoyment of your candle, which can last about 2 years.
