5 tips to get the most from your Ranger Station candle.

When mentioning “trimming your wicks” to customers, most of  the time we get a confused look in return. Trimming your wicks is one of the keys to perfectly melting your candle. But wait! That’s not the only tactic to extend the melt time, aroma, and look of the candle.

To keep you guys “in the know” we went ahead and put together 5 ways to get the most from your Ranger Station candle.

 

  1. Before your first burn, be sure to give yourself 3-4 hours for the candle to burn while attended. We know that the hardest part is wanting to immediately light the candle upon purchase, but this step is the most important! It’s supposed to be a relaxing experience, so we suggest doing this in the evening when you're lounging or watching the game.
  1. We only pour soy wax and soy is a living organism. Therefore it continues to expand, contract and change from its current form. It may also look frosted. These ‘flaws’ are normal and it is a clear indication that you have purchased a 100% all natural soy candle.
  1. Keep your wick trimmed to 1/4”. Occasionally, mushrooming of the wicks may occur when you blow out after a use. This is okay and simply means that there is a build up of carbon. After the candle is extinguished, allow wick to harden and carefully trim to 1/4”. Do not allow wick trimming to fall into wax, as this can create a fire hazard. Need a wick trimmer? Head over to our store and grab an official Ranger Station Trimmer.
  2. When lighting our soy candles for the first time and each time after, allow the wax to melt all the way out to the diameter of the bourbon glass. Once you get there allow it to melt ¼” deep. This is what we call a “Melt Pool”. A Melt Pool is where most all of our fragrant aroma is released. If you avoid this step, you’re candle may never see its full potential.
  1. Discard your candle once the remaining wax reaches 1/2” deep. At this point you are clear to use you glass for your drink of choice! We recommend some good ole Bourbon, but anything will do!

Now that you've been educated in candle maintenance. You are officially a Ranger Station candle pro.

Review:

  • If your candle is extinguished prior to allowing a full melt pool, all future melt pools will not go past the first one.
  • Keep the wick trimmed to approximately 1/4”.
  • Do not burn more than 4 hours.
  • Discontinue when 1/2” wax remains. Then pour your favorite mixed spirit, and keep enjoying Ranger Station.

New Years Resolution: Give them more Ranger Station

Happy New Year!

Because of all of you, we had an incredible 2016. As crazy as it was, looking back we can see how much we have grown as a business, and entrepreneurs. From expanding our brand into stores coast to coast, being featured in magazines that are way out of our league, partnerships with bourbon companies that we admire, to donating a check to the TN Rangers after the forest fires. It’s crazy how it flew by, but we are proud of the mark we left on 2016.

With all of that being said… bring on 2017!

Last year messages and testimonials from customers were continuous and up lifting. To know that many people smell a Ranger Station candle and it takes them to a special place makes us feel like winners.

But with the new year comes new things from Ranger Station.

We are over the moon to inform you that we will be expanding the Ranger Station line and brand in 2017. With our love for fragrance, we want to make sure we are delivering scents in channels accessible to all.
