Frequently Asked Questions

Our Products:

  1. Starting your scented adventure. We recommend the first time you burn your Laykhaus candles it is important to allow a full melt-pool for a consistent burn each time and to mitigate the tunneling effect.
  2. What is the Tunneling? This is where you only burn your candle for a short amount of time and the wick burns straight down the center, instead of creating a full pool of melted wax across the entire surface, just like a shimmering lake!
  3. Wick care? To make the most of your candles, we recommend you trim the wick to ¼ inch before every burn. This will prevent the mushrooming effect (yes that is candle terminology!) which is essentially a build up on the end of the wick and will allow you to have a gentle burn with a nice size flame every burn.
  4. What is the lifetime of your candles? We recommend burning your candles within one year for peak performance.
