Many factors can influence the burning performance of a candle. These include not only how the candle is made but how and where it is used.
Two types of materials serve as containers for long-burning candles: the open-top plastic container and the “restricted-neck” (often called a bottlelight) glass container.
For the best performance use your Devotion or Sanctuary Lights as follows:
Never allow any foreign objects, (matches, lighting tapers or sticks) to drop into any candle.
Observe a few simple precautions, and you will be rewarded with highly satisfactory performance from your Candle Followers. Their operation is based on the law of gravity.
Once a follower is seated, and especially after the candle has been lighted,do not break the seal.
