Our #1 focus was to create candles with an even burn, so we curated a beautiful premium wax, not only does it have an even burn but it also has a lasting and memorable scent. We then pour our candles into sleek modern designed vessels to enhance your candle experience, with intentions on reusing and repurposing as a part of your everyday lifestyle.
What you didn't think you needed to know
If you're anything like us, you might be a little candle obsessed. It's ok, we're a welcoming group of flame lovers but when it comes to care of these lit beauties, how much do you actually know?
Of course, attention is always key when it comes to an open flame, but you need to understand that there's a bit more than meets the eye to keeping your candle burning at it's best. We've gathered our tips and tricks to help you make your favorite Imjusme101 candles last.
Did you know! If you want to make your candle last longer, you should prep it before every burn?
When lighting your candle for the first time, it's essential to allow the top layer of wax to fully melt from the center to the edge of the vessel. This should take no more than 2-3 hours to achieve on most of our candles. Every time you light your candle, we recommend you follow this same process. Following these essential and simple steps will ensure your candle burns evenly while maximizing your candles burn time providing you with a beautiful fragrance release and although, we all love a good show we do not recommend you hold your hand over the flame or turn the vessels upside down to show off your new magic tricks.
Trim that thang
We know you're ready to get that baby lit, but taking a moment to trim that wick will help your candle burn a little bit slower and a little bit longer. Trimming your wick before every session will significantly reduce smoking and sooting, including any "mushroom" formed. Sooting and mushrooming are more likely to form on more concentrated and higher fragranced candles.
Don't be alarmed if you notice (some) flickering and a lot of crackling on wooden wicked candles this is normal and is made to give you the illusion you are cozy by a fireplace.
To minimize candle flickering and sooting, we recommend you trim your candle wick to ¼" before lighting every time. You can cut your wick with a wick trimmer, scissors or nail clipper. Please be sure to remove all toenail clippings from your candle before lighting. Although we are always open to new scents, we will take no part in the new fungus fragrance you'll create.
Don't be that guy that leaves their candle burning unattended. Remember to always be mindful of where you place your lit candles. Be sure to keep them away from drafts, such as fans, open windows, or air vents, babies, pets, boyfriends, and husbands because they're known to be clumsy.
Wondering what to do with those empties?
Reuse them, silly! Although we're not fully Eco friendly ( yet ), we still believe in protecting the environment, and this is our way of helping. We love repurposing our packaging as planters and storage for cotton balls, q-tips, etc. Our blended wax makes it easy to clean your glass. If you're local, you can even reuse them for the next batch of candles. Lets all join together in doing our bit for the planet one jar at a time.
REMOVING WAX: There are many methods to remove your remaining wax, but we prefer the warmer method. Place your candle on a wax warmer base. Usually, the wax will melt away, with ease but if not, that's ok. Carefully scrape away using a utensil, being sure to remove the wick holder as well. Now now, don't be wasteful; be sure to place the remaining wax in a warmer and use it as a wax melt.
Note: use a cloth to wipe the jar, hand wash, rinse, and dry. Vessels should be hand washed before reuse and not placed inside dishwashers. We do not suggest using our containers, food storage, or drinkware. And now that you're all out of your faves..restock! Click here to shop, so you never go without your signature scent.
