Directions to all Oil Burning Wood Candles:
Defining the Parts of your Wick:
There are 3 pieces to your wick.
1). The Vial - glass “test tube” look-a-like. This holds your oil.
2) The Glass Collar - this rests at the top of the vial and holds the fiberglass rope in place.
3) The Fiberglass Rope - 3/26” in diameter and 4” long. This allows the oil to travel and burn from the vial.
*Pour your oil into your dispenser for easy filling of the glass vial.
Lighting the Wick:
Push wick 1/8” above the collar - just enough to touch with a match
Grab glass collar and pull up out of vial just enough so bottom of collar clears the opening to the vial. Then bend the collar over the side of the vial and fill with oil just to base of the neck of the vial.
Return collar to top of vial and be sure the wick is still set 1/8” above collar. Readjust if necessary.
Light your candle by touching a match to the wick.
You may blow out your candle or let it burn until it uses all the oil (approximately 3 hours) and it will go out by itself.
Once you have used all the oil in your vial, the wick will not light. You will need to refill with oil.
*Always burn a candle within sight and away from flammable objects
*Use Clear Paraffin Lamp Oil for best results.
