Wick Size Does Matter
Has this ever happened to you? This is called tunneling of the candle. This occurs when the wick size is incorrect for the wax that is used. The core of the candle will burn straight down, eventually suffocating the flame due to lack of oxygen.
I thought I bought the right wick size for the container I used, but the wick that was recommended by the vendor was for beeswax not soy wax. I hate wasting wax, time and shipping costs.
Back to the drawing board...
On a good note, the scent is wonderful! It was a creamy floral.
I'll let you know when I make candles that are burn proof. ;)
