How to use

Instructions

Note that the below wick instructions are based on our in-house testing, and you should also conduct your own testing with fragrance loads and colouring. (Download the complimentary testing sheet)

 

Step 1 – Measuring the Diameter of the Jar

Ensure that you work on a safe surface. It is advised to pack out and re-measure the inside diameter of the jars, write down the diameter as not to choose the incorrect wick.

 

Step 2 – Select the Wick

Choose the wick based on the diameter provided in the wick table.

 

Step 3 – Decide to use 1 or 2 Wicks

If your jar has a wide diameter, and you need to use 2 wicks, divide the diameter of the jar by the number of wicks you will be using, also refer to the wick table.

 

Step 4 – Applying the wick to the Jar

Use a good quality glue gun, place a tiny drop of warm glue onto the metal sustainer.  Simply adhere the wick as central in the jar as possible, you can also mark the middle with a non-permanent marker. For double wicks, mentally divide out the jar, mark out the two half sections and place wicks equal distance from the sides and middle.  You can also use Bostik extra sleight glue dots.
