Safety Tipsby Jun’s Light

Thank you for choosing Jun’s Light Candles. I hope you enjoy my artworks in your lifestyle.
To ensure you get the maximum results from your candle while maintaining safety at all time, please follow these simple but effective user instructions.

Burn with safety

Always burn your candle on a fire resistant surfaces and away from flammable objects and other sources of heat and draughts. Keep away from children and pets and never leave a candle unattended while lit. Always leave a minimum of 10cm between any burning candles.

Candle Performance

For maximum results, burn your candle for 3-4 hours at a time. (30-40 min. at a time for votives when it is freestanding / otherwise please use fitting holder) After this period allow the wax to cool and solidify before re-lighting. Burning candles near air vents, fans, or open windows will cause your candle to produce soot. When a breeze causes the candle flame to bounce around, its size changes.

Trimming the wick

Keep your wick trimmed to 5mm at all time. If after a few minutes the flame of the candle looks too big or is bouncing around (while not in a draft) please cut the wick a little shorter. As you light the candle for hours the wick will gradually grow so as the length of the candle flame. The ideal flame length for Jun’s Light Candles are in between 2.5-3cm. Ensure that any wick trimmings are removed before lighting the candle. Wick trimmer can be useful where possible.

Lighting the candle

Use along barreled gas lighter where possible as they do not leave residue which matches can and it is easier to ignite the wicks as the wax reduces down the candle jar. A candle snuffer should be used where possible to extinguish each flame.

Let the wax pool

When lighting Jar candles…
each time you burn your candle allow the entire top layer to become a pool of liquid wax.
This creates the best fragrance throw available, keeps your wicks burning with a consistent flame and helps to avoid tunnelling (wax residue left at the sides of a candle jar).If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me

An Introduction to
Interpretations of “Aroma”
by Jun’s Light

Jun’s Light creates both unscented and scented candles depending on various lifestyles and personal preferences.
With regard to individual sensitivity to smell, Jun gives particular consideration. The significance of subtle scent perception is seen as a significant aspect in the appreciation of candle light, thus the portion of fragrant oil may be less concentrated by degree than in the general and typical candle making process.

Essential Oils

Essential Oil is a natural concentration mainly obtained by distillation,and comprised of volatile aromatic compounds derived from herbs and plants. When a candle is lit and creates a wax pool, you will gradually sense the subtle aroma of the oil.

Fragrance Oils

Fragrance Oil is artificially concentrated, containing mainly synthetic compounds. In wax, it produces a stronger scent than Essential Oil and can be perceptible even from an un-lit candle. Since it is not naturally based, it is capable of expressing and being perceived as images and impressions of natural phenomenon, experiences and even memories, such as: an Ocean Breeze, Home Sweet Home, or The First time Visiting an Orchard.

Preference in scent is a quite personal experience, and relationship with a scent varies from person to person. It is a fluid experience for most and can be affected by different variables, such as physical and emotional states, time and space, and seasons and occasions. If this is a consideration, the choice of an unscented candle may be a recommended suggestion.

Jun’s Light is always willing to hear your experiences of candle light.
