Candles have rough surface or small air bubbles which can lead to small holes, cracking, and/or jump lines. It’s possible that candles were poured at too high of a temperature, that water got into the wax, or that it was stirred too vigorously. Candle wicks are made of wax that has been heated to a high enough temperature to melt it. The wax melts and the wick is pulled out of the candle.

This is a common cause of candle burn-out. It can also be caused by too many candles being used in a small space, too much heat being applied to the candles, or a combination of all of these factors. If you have a lot of candles in your home, you may want to consider buying a larger candle holder to prevent this from happening in the first place.

The first thing you need to do is to make sure that you are using the correct size candle for your space. You can do this by measuring the diameter of your candle and then using that as a guideline to determine how much wax you should use.
