These Tipsy Tips will help you to burn your candle properly and extend the burn time of your candle so that you may enjoy every moment of your Tipsy Candle experience. Natural Color Variations or Cracks You may notice that although we have many different scents our candles are all white in color, this is because we choose to keep our wax free of any colored dyes. Because of this you may see some natural discoloration at times, this is because some Fragrance oils have a natural color to them our candles occasionally react with the wax to create a darker hue to the wax and may tint the candle wax Also heated wax from burning a candle will sometimes darken the wax. Please know this is all a very natural process and does not affect the performance or environmentally safe nature of our product. Soy Wax is also very sensitive to temperature as it is an all natural product, for example when a 100% soy candle is exposed to temperatures below 70 degrees, it may develop small cracks in the in the wax. These cracks do not affect the performance of the candle, when the candle is lit and warmed back up to 70 degrees and above, the cracks usually disappear quickly.
wicks.jpg For the first use, burn the candle a minimum of one hour per diameter inch. This will melt the wax to the edge of the glass or tin. Our candles are designed to burn all the way to the edges. This will allow for maximum use of the wax in each candle. Keep the wick trimmed to ¼” before every use. This is true for any candle. Use a wick trimmer or pinch off the extra wick before lighting. Low Flame or Flame Too Strong If the flame becomes too low, extinguish it and trim the clogged wick and re-light. You can also remove some of the wax around the wick when it cools making sure you expose at least ¼” of the wick. Re-light the candle. If a candle flame becomes too high or if the candle gets too hot, extinguish the flame, trim the wick and re-light the candle.

Recycling Your Candle Since the Tipsy Candle company is very passionate about recycling we would love if you continue to Upcycle your candle when it is done, continuing to help the environment. Once you have completed burning the entire candle it may be cleaned out for re-use. Wipe out any excess wax residue and compost or discard. Do not pour excess wax down your drain. You may place the candle in a warm oven (150 degrees or lower) to melt the leftover wax for easy removal, the wick can be removed and the metal wick holder can be recycled with other tin items and the glass can be cleaned with warm soapy water We Appreciate You Recycling and helping To “Save The Earth, One Bottle At a Time.
