After choosing your Spa-Valous body candle relating to your choice of colour from the seven colours of the chakras, you can enjoy an aromatherapeutic bath experience. Read the insert in the box before use. Trim wick to 5 mm before lighting the candle.
Once lit, allow the candle to burn for approximately 20 minutes or until a full melt pool has been achieved. Did you know that candle wax possesses a kind of ‘memory’? From the first time the candle burns and the wax becomes liquid, the wax will tend to repeat this melt pattern each time the candle is lit. Improper burning can lead to puddling in the centre while leaving unsightly ridges along the edges of the container. Therefore, in order to help ensure even burning in a container candle, safely allow the melt pool to expand evenly across the candle surface before extinguishing it. (Keep your candle out of a draft or breeze this will help ensure even melting across the surface.) This method will help your candle burn more evenly across the surface the next time it is lit.
Once melted, soy wax tends toward an irregular surface, producing small bumps and formations and even a white patina. This is quite natural and doesn’t indicate a defect, nor does it affect the quality of your candle in any way.
Allow the candle to burn for at least 20 minutes in order to form a melt pool while you lie and relax in the aromas of the essential oils and body-safe fragrances. These fragrances are chosen according to their related chakra.
Once out of the bath, place your finger into the melt pool (it will only be two degrees hotter than your body temperature and therefore the oil will be warm, not hot). Push the bottom of the wick into the oil in order to extinguish the flame. Do not blow the flame out as you don’t want to give off any white soot.
Once the flame is out the soy candle can be used as a luxurious body lotion or massage medium. Make sure that the body is completely dry before applying the lotion. Massage the lotion well into the skin. Spa-Valous is the candle that you wear.
