Why isn't my candle burning all the way to the edges?
This is called ‘tunneling’ which can be caused by a number of shorter burn times in the beginning where the wax doesn’t melt all the way to the edge.
To prevent this you should burn the candle until the wax is uniformly melted across the top. Please be careful and never burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.

Are KERTI candles hand-poured?

How does it work?
The STORY – Scent has the magically ability to evoke memories and emotion. To create the perfect candle for your event or that special someone, we like to start with the story.
The SCENT – What do we remember about people and events? We remember the colours, the sounds, the flaws that amuse us and the beauty that move us. Now discover the scent that will make you remember again and again.
The VESSLE – Scent is as intangible as air, as fleeting as thought. Capture it in a vessel that is as beautiful and unique as the Person or event it was created for.
