Problems With Natural Oil-Based Spiritual Oils And 7 Day Candles
Okay, I get this complaint a lot and I know it's true because I've experienced it myself. All these natural based spiritual oils, oils that have as their base almond oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, etc., these oils are horrible to use when burning 7 day candles. Half the time you use them the flame automatically goes out once you light the candle. Then, the times where the flame doesn't automatically go out it shrinks so low that it might as well be extinguished. With time it will either go out or gradually burn right. However, when using spiritual oils that are not natural oil based this problem doesn't happen. For example, if you buy the spiritual oils that are mineral-oil based, even the cheap kind, then you won't have this problem. So everyone who is writing me complaining about how their 7 day candles go out right after they are lit, it's the oil you are using. Switch to a different non-natural oil for 7 day candles and you will be fine. If you want to use the natural based oils for non-7 day candles then they are usually fine. Other than that, the only thing I can recommend is only using a very small portion of natural based oils on your 7 day candles and see if that helps.
