The hollow core of the wick allows oxygen to be drawn up from the bottom so that the flame consumes more melted wax, thus increasing the combustion power and creating a powerful flame. The candle body is oſten made from natural ingredient such as fruit of the wax tree, lacquer tree, or rice brans.

• Place the candle in place out of reach of wind and breezes, even if inside of the house.
• During burning, keep the wick ca. 1cm: cut the black burnt wick with the candle snuffer or a metal tweezer, so that the flame stays stable.
• To extinguish, use the candle snuffer or a metal tweezer. Melted wax may splatter, if you extinguish the candle by blowing it out.
