Give Your Wick A Trim
Keep the wick nice and trimmed up. Wicks need to be kept at a healthy 0,5 cm length and should be trimmed prior to every burn, including the first one. Long wicks can split and drop debris into the wax. A shorter wick means a better wax pool, which means a better burn. We suggest trimming the wick every 4 hours of burn time. Always extinguish the flame, let the candle cool down and trim the wick before relighting.
Make That Pool Wide
Each time you burn your candle allow the entire top layer to become a fragrant pool of liquid wax up to the glass and you’ll get the best scent possible. It’s important to let the wax pool reach all the way to the edge of the container. This prevents tunneling and wax waste. Candle jars typically need to burn for 4-6 hours at a time.
Keep Things Even & Safe
Always keep your burning candle on an even, heat resistant, and sturdy surface. Never burn your candle near anything that can catch fire, keep it out of drafts and keep them out of reach of kids and pets. Never leave it unattended while lit. Use the lid of the jar as a coaster to protect the surface of getting to hot or damaged.
Know When To Stop
When there is approximately 1,5 cm of wax left in the bottom of your candle it’s time to stop burning. It’s okay for there to be some wax left over, candles are created with this little buffer of wax. When candles are burned below this level the container can get hot and burn you or the surface your candle is sitting on.
