Ebony is the name given to the dark brown, sometimes black, tissue called “duramen” found under the bark of Ebenaceae trees. Praised for its sturdiness and density, ebony is used to carve precious furniture pieces and refined musical instruments.
Directions for use:
- Never leave a lit candle unattended, and do not burn one for more than 2 hours at a time.
- Always burn a candle until the entire surface liquifies, and allow it to solidify before re-lighting.
- Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch at all times, to avoid any black smoke. Gently re-position the wick while the wax is still molten.
- Always protect the surface on which the candle rests.
- Once only ¼ inch of wax remains, blow out the candle and let it fully cool before safely discarding it.
