THE BEST WAYS TO AVOID AND FIX CANDLE TUNNELLING
Candle tunneling happens when a candle burns down its center, leaving hard wax around the outside. This wasted wax means your candle won’t achieve its maximum burn time. As the flame burrows further down the middle, the wick will become more and more difficult to light and eventually be drowned by melting wax.
HOW TO PREVENT CANDLE TUNNELLING
The first time you burn your candle, the diameter of the initial melt will determine the width of the melt for the rest of its lifespan. If you don't let the entire top layer burn, you'll notice the candle start to "tunnel" as you use it more and more.
HOW TO FIX CANDLE TUNNELING
If the tunneling is mild, you can use a hairdryer to blast the top of the candle with hot air. This high temperature can help to melt or smooth out the uneven wax. Try to melting the entire top layer to reset the wax's memory.
For larger issues, light your candle and form an aluminum foil tent over the top of the jar. Make sure you poke a hole in the foil so that the candle smoke can exit. Check on your candle periodically to make sure it's not overheating. Remove the foil when the wax has all melted evenly, be careful the foil will be HOT!
