AngeNae Collections takes pride in making you happy, and we want your experience with our candles to give you fulfillment for every mood and occasion.  For the most effective way to do this, please follow our candle care tips below. Failure to follow instructions could result in fire hazard, injury, or smoke damage.

Definition Terms:

Melt Pool:

What is a melt pool? A full melt pool means the wax has been heated long enough to reach the edge of the container. This usually occurs in about 1-2 hours. A full melt pool should be 1/8 to 1/4 inch deep which will allow the fragrance to disperse more completely into the room.


What is tunneling? When the wick burns straight down the center of a candle without creating a full melt pool leaving wax on the wall of the candle.   



When lighting candles for the first time burn until wax melts across the entire surface to the sides of the vessel.

In other words, before blowing out candle make sure candle has reached a full melt pool; otherwise, the candle may tunnel when lit again causing the wax to stay on the wall of the vessel. Allowing the candle to completely melt across the entire surface to the sides of the vessel will create an even burn for the duration of the candle's life. This may take up to 2-4 hours.


Keep wick centered & trimmed to 1/4" before each burn to limit smoking & soot build-up on the vessel or

other items.  If the wick is too short the flame will be small and will not stay lit. If the wick is too long it will cause

sooting.  Invest in a good pair of wick trimmers that will cut and remove the excess wick (mushroom off the tip of the wick), then relight.








Burn the candle only on stable heat resistant surface.  Do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.


Keep wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches, and or other flammable materials at all times.



If your candle smokes, flickers or the flame becomes too high, extinguish the candle with a snuffer to prevent smoking and also prevent hot wax from splattering.  Do not blow out. These signs indicate the

candle is not burning properly and the flame isn't controlled.  Let the candle cool, trim the wick, then check for

drafts before re-lighting.


Keep candles away from drafts.  Drafts can cause the flame to flicker, which often causes the candle to burn

uneven and smoke.


Do not burn the candle all the way down.  Discontinue use when only 1/4" of wax remains in the bottom of      



Do not move candle while burning or if wax or container is hot.


Never leave a burning candle unattended.


Keep candles out of reach of children, disabled, elderly adults, and pets
