Answering Your FAQs

At Antique Candle Works, our goal is to provide you with the best candle experience possible.  Not only does this involve your experience with our actual candles, but we also strive to give you a pleasant experience when ordering and receiving your favorite fragrances!


On our Customer FAQ page, we answer some important questions to keep you informed about Antique Candle Works!  Some of these questions are in regards to antique candles, candle fragrances, and even how to store your candle.  We’ve also put together a series of blogs that can aid you with cleaning out your old candle jar, using and removing wax melts, and so much more. 

We are always happy to help with anything our friends might need, so we’ve put together three tips based on some commonly asked questions!


Why did my candle tunnel after I burned it?

The most common reason for a candle to tunnel is that it was not burned long enough the first time it was lit.  The first light of a candle is very important in ensuring a clean and even burn the next time your light it.  When you receive your new Antique Candle Works candle, be sure to let it burn long enough to allow the melted wax on the surface to reach the edge of the jar, which could take a few hours depending on the size of your candle. 

If your candle tunneled, the next time you light it be sure to allow the wax to melt across the surface and around the tunneled area.  For more helpful tips, check out the blog “How to get the Most out of Your Candle!”


I’m having trouble with the 15% off coupon from the email subscription.

My candle order is a gift.  Can you include a message?

Of course!  We have many people create an order to be shipped to a loved one as a gift!  If you let us know at the end of your order that your purchase is a gift (where you can add any additional notes), not only can we include a special message, but we will also make sure to not include the receipt with pricing information in the package.  When you add this note to your order, simply write what you would like us to write and we would be happy to include any message you like in this special gift!
