LUMINIA natural scented candles are made from the highest quality 100% natural waxes without paraffin, preservatives nor additives. As we do not use chemical preservatives, we recommend lighting the candle within 6 months of purchase and burning it within one year. With each lighting, its wonderful scent revives.
Especially at the first lighting, it is important to give the wick enough time to completely melt the surface to achieve a clean burning of the whole candle. If you light a candle only for a moment, the wax will melt inside next to the wick and form a so-called “tunnel”.
