Candle followers, also referred to as candle burners or wax savers, are available in all sizes to fit the largest Paschal candle to the smallest Altar candle. Properly fitting candles with followers will insure maximum burning time and minimize the potential for problems.
Care While Burning
- Try not to disturb candles that are performing satisfactorily.
- Place candles out of the way of drafts. Airflow from sources such as ceiling fans, heating or air conditioning ducts, or perhaps an open sacristy door, may need to be redirected.
- Seat a properly sized candle FIRMLY and VERTICALLY STRAIGHT in the candlestick. Tilted candles may cause irregular burning and dripping.
- Approximately 3/4-inch of EXPOSED WICK is recommended for efficient burning. Trim if necessary
