Important with Baobab Collection!
Cut the wicks before each burning. They can not exceed 1 cm.
When burning the candle, let it burn until the whole surface is liquid. This will avoid the candle becomes hollow.
Dark smoke after some hours burning means the wicks are too long. It is time to put out the candle.
Five minutes after putting out the candle, and before the wax is totally solid, reposition the wicks vertically to their initial place.
Do not burn the last centimetres of wax to avoid wicks lying down and burning against the glass due to a lack of stability in fully liquid wax.
WARNING: a wick burning against the glass may result in the blasting of the glass.
