Candle Burning Tips

-When burning your candle for the first time, it is best to let it burn for up to 4 hours to achieve an even melt pool(preventing wax accumulation on the sides of your new candle).

- Burn your candle for no longer than 4 hours at a time.

-Before each burn, trim the wick to at least 1/4 of an inch to avoid any black smoke and sooting residue on the interior of the glass jar.

-Always remove any debris from the wax prior to burning. 

-Burn your candle on a flat surface away from any flammable or combustible materials. 

-Never leave your candle unattended.

-Keep out of reach from children and pets. 

Why should you trim your wick

Keeping your wick trimmed to between 1/8 and 1/4 inches long can solve a multitude of problems while burning.

Candles with wicks that are too long can start to "mushroom" at the top, which can dull the flame or cause it to pop when burning, becoming a fire hazard. Wick trimming can keep this from happening.

If the wick gets too long, the candle can burn sooty and cause the candle wax to discolor to a yellowish hue when dry. Not to mention the visible black soot that will settle on the sides of the container.

Why should your first burn be at least 2 to 4 hours 

Your first burn is the most important. Burning your candle for up to 4 hours is essential for developing an even melt pool to avoid wax build up around the perimeter of your candle.

When you burn your candle for a brief time only the wax closest to the wick will melt, leaving an uneven wax surface when dry. An uneven melt pool can lead to what is called "tunneling" where only the wax closest to the wick willwill be burned, giving off a lighter fragrance and producing an unused ring of wax along the sides.
