The RAIN candle features our signature 01 scent, which is equal parts earthy and subtly sweet. It has a grounding presence that turns any space into a relaxing environment.
As a completely all natural candle, it can be prone to tunneling - when the candle burns down the middle, leaving wax untouched on the sides. Not only is this frustrating to see, but it also means that you're not getting the full use out of your candle.
Here are a few tips for preventing tunneling in your candles:
Trim the wick: Before lighting your candle, make sure to trim the wick to about 1/4 inch. A longer wick may cause the candle to burn too quickly and create a tunnel.
Allow the candle to burn for a longer period of time: The first time you light a candle, let it burn for at least two hours to allow the wax to melt evenly across the surface. This will help to prevent tunneling in future burns.
Avoid burning your candle in drafty areas: Drafts can cause the flame to flicker, which can lead to tunneling. Try to burn your candle in a calm, still area to promote an even burn.
