About Bluecorn
Like other beeswax pillars their first burn should be very long to establish a wide burn pool and prevent tunneling. Recommended burn times for the various diameters can be found below. Maintenance: 1.Trim wick to 1/4" before each lighting. 2. To avoid tunneling (on 3” or more diameter pillars) wait until candle walls are warmed and push walls inward toward flame. Allow candle to burn for at least one more hour after doing this. 3. To prevent uneven burning and potential dripping use a metal tool to redirect a curled or angled wick to the opposite direction. 4. To eliminate smoke when extinguishing a pillar flame, use a metal tool to dunk wick into the wax pool. Be sure wick stands back up.
Suggested Initial Burn Times - Pillars
Suggested Burn Times – Pillars
These solid rolled pillars are renowned for their bold flame and consistent burn. Like other beeswax pillars their first burn should be very long to establish a wide burn pool and prevent tunneling. Recommended burn times for the various diameters can be found below. Maintenance: 1.Trim wick to 1/4" before each lighting. 2. These pillars are prone to elongated wicks and tall flames after two or more hours of burning (also sometimes after very first lighting). Simply trim the wick with a sharp scissors while burning or extinguish, trim & relight. 3. To avoid tunneling (on 3” or more diameter pillars) wait until candle walls are warmed and push walls inward toward flame. Allow candle to burn for at least one more hour after doing this. 4. To prevent uneven burning, wall blow-outs and potential dripping use a metal tool to redirect a curled or angled wick to the opposite direction. 5. To eliminate smoke when extinguishing a pillar flame, use a metal tool to dunk wick into the wax pool. Be sure wick stands back up.
Hand Dipped Tapers:
All of our hand dipped tapers are virtually dripless and very long burning. Keep away from open windows or excessive drafts. Maintenance: 1. DO NOT trim wick before each lighting! The long curled wick that you find should just be lit as is. 2. To minimize smoking use a snuffer to extinguish flame.
Votives:
All votives should be burned in a heat resistant container just a bit wider than the votive. Votives are designed to spill out and develop a molten pool which fills the container. Maintenance: 1. Placing an 1/8” of water at the bottom of a votive glass will make wax cleanup and extrication much easier when a votive is done. 2. When a votive is towards the end of its life (1/2” left) let it burn till it goes out.
Tea Lights:
Our pure beeswax Tea Lights are designed to be burned in the clear polycarbonate containers they come in or a comparable heat resistant holder. Maintenance: 1. To maximize overall burn time let the Tea Light burn at least 2.0 hours per burn. This will ensure all or most of the wax (fuel) is melted and used. 2. When a Tea Light is towards the end of its life let it burn till it goes out. This too will lengthen the overall burn time.
