Palm candles burn completely differently than paraffin or soy candles.

How to properly burn palm candles?

In the first stage of burning, palm candles burn cylindrically from the center towards the edges of the container – so they do not melt the entire surface of the candle like soy wax candles. Another advantage of palm candles is that palm wax burns twice as long as paraffin candles. If you want to enjoy the fragrance of your newly purchased natural candle longer, you should follow a few rules.

Rules for burning palm candles


First burning of a palm candle

During the first lighting of a palm candle, allow the wax to melt all the way to the outer edges of the container. Fully melting the top layer of wax ensures even burning of the candle (without so-called tunneling) and allows you to release a more intense fragrance.




We use 100% cotton and 100% natural wooden wicks that are untreated and lead-free to ensure the cleanest burning possible. Each time before relighting the candle, trim the wick to 1/4 of its length to ensure proper burning. Always trim the wick when the wax is solidified.



Ending the Candle Burning

You should finish burning the candle when about 1cm of wax remains at the bottom of the jar. This is the time to purchase a new Makandulo candle.




How to Take Care of a Palm Candle?

Store the candle in a sealed jar. When you finish burning it, carefully blow out the flame. Check to make sure the wick is not smoldering after it has been extinguished.



Never leave lit candles unattended. Always place candles on a heat-resistant base and set them on a flat and stable surface.

By adhering to the above guidelines on how to properly burn palm candles, you will be able to enjoy your newly purchased candle for a much longer time.
