Be patient and always follow candle safety rules when burning a candle down. Do not dig for your jewelry. This can cause your candle to tunnel or burn unevenly. Jackpot candles is not responsible for the damaged incurred to your jewelry item when burning the candle.
Trimming your candle wick 1/4 inch prior to every burn will ensure a continuous quality burn. Keeping the wick too short or too long can cause a burning candle to blow out. If you have wax build up on your wick, you might try holding a lighter to the wick to burn off. If the wick is too short, you could try melting some of the top wax with a hair dryer and drain, until wax is below your wick.
The first burn of any candle is the most important. All candles should burn one hour for every 1 inch in diameter of the actual candle size. The wax should be melted evenly, all the way across the candle. So the initial burn should be at least 3 hours for our 21 ounce candle to liquefy the entire top layer of wax. Candle tunneling happens when you have too many short burns where the wax ends up burning straight down the center of the jar. So always remember to burn your candle long enough to create at least a 1/2 layer of melted wax on top and trim your candle wick 1/4 inch prior to each burn. These simply steps will prevent candle tunneling and ensure an even burn.
There are several common reasons why you might not be able to smell your candle. 1). Olfactory Fatigue - After prolonged exposure your nose is unable to distinguish a particular fragrance. Your nose is temporarily unable to smell the candle scent due to desensitizing. This is caused by smelling a burning fragrant candle for a long time period. Removing yourself from the area, or even rotating candle fragrances and help. 2). Ventilation Systems - Do not burn your candle underneath a home intake vent for a heater or an air conditioner. Intake vents can pull the candle burning scent out of the air. Please contact our customer service team for any further concerns or questions you may have.
You can clean the glass jar after you have enjoyed your favorite fragrant soy candle. 1). If there is any wax remaining at the bottom of your candle, please remove it and dispose of it in the trash.

Or, simply dig out the wax with a butter knife. 2). You will want to remove all labels from the jar. If there is any glue remaining, you could use a sticky label liquid remover.

Soy wax products are the safest and cleanest burning candles. During significant temperature changes, soy candles can release excess oil. A small portion of moisture may appear at the top of the candle. This is called "sweating." Gently wipe with away moisture with a soft cloth. Candle sweating can occur during package shipping. This is why we ship our natural soy candles priority, so you will receive it in several days. Store your candles in a cool place and always try to avoid direct sunlight. Sweating should not affect your candle burning experience.
Delamination is when an area of the wax has pulled away from the glass container. This is part of the hand-poured candle making process and is very common. The glass container can magnify the appearance of an air bubble, but please be assured, it will not affect your candles performance.
