You strike a match, put it to the wick and just like magic, the candle starts to burn. Then after a few burns, that annoying thing called ‘tunnelling’ happens. You know, the part of the candle that actually burns, gets smaller and smaller, which is so frustrating if, like me, you're a little OCD.
My love affair with candles has been many years in the making. I remember my first home shopping trip to Ikea fondly. “ooh, I must buy some candles because I’m a grown up now”. It wasn’t long before my slight OCD meant this type of candle wasn’t going to work out for me. Why wouldn’t these flippin candles burn all the way to the edge?!
