A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Candle

Wax of any type shaped around a wick. The wick burns and melts the wax into a liquid, which is transported by capillary action to the flame which vaporizes the fuel and burns it off. Visit our Online Candle Store

Candle Accessory

Objects designed to aid you in the use of your candle. These can come in many forms including a candle holder, candle lighter or candle snuffer. See our full range of Candle Essentials

Car Air Freshener

Small fresheners that are usually placed in your car to slowly release fresh fragrances. The two most common forms are scented cardboard fresheners and gel fresheners. See our full range of Car Fragrance

Chatter Marks

(AKA Jump Lines, Skip Lines, Stutter Marks). This is the result of the wax not being hot enough when it is poured into a mould, or the mould is cooler than the wax. The effect of this is small bubbles or lines being formed in the wax.

Clear Crystals

(AKA Lustre Crystals). An additive that raises the melting point of wax. This, in turn, results in longer burning times and brighter colours for your candles.

Cold Pour

A technique used give the finished candle a rough, rather than smooth, look. This is achieved by pouring the wax in at a cooler temperature or using a chilled mould.

Cold Scent Throw

This is the strength of a candles fragrance when it is unlit.

Colour Stabilizer

An additive used to improve the colouring of your candle, slowing down the rate at which it fades in the light and protecting it from fragrance and heat solvents.

Container

Not a mould, a vessel used to hold the wax in that will become part of the finished candle.

Container Candle

Any candle that is made by pouring wax into a container or mould of any type.

Core

Central part of a candle, or the inner material of the wick.

Core Burning

A hole burnt down the centre of a candle if the melt pool does not reach the edges. This is often due to improper wicking.

Core Candle

A plain pillar candle used for over-dipping and cut and curl candle making. Core candles may also be used when placing embedded objects such as sea shells or stones around the outside of a pillar.

Cored Wicks

Wicks with a core containing either paper, cotton or zinc. Designed to stay straight while burning and are braided with a round cross section.

Coreless Cotton

Wicks that have no core material, often made from cotton and are flat braided wicks used in taper candles.
