Candle Care + Tips

Candle Care + Tips
THE FIRST BURN:
When lighting for the first time, burn the candle until wax melts across the entire surface up to the sides of the container as this will prevent tunneling, & create an even burn for the duration of the candle's life. This may take up to 2-4 hours, but we promise it will make your candle last longer.

TRIM YOUR WICK:
Trimming your wick is vital to the health & life of your candle. We recommend trimming your wick with wick trimmers before every lighting to a height of 1/4 inch. Keeping it this length will avoid mushrooming which can result in unnecessary soot. This also controls the size of the flame allowing you to get the most time out of your candle.

KEEP AWAY FROM WINDY SPACES:
Drafts decrease burn time, cause uneven burning, smoking and diminished scent throw.

HOW TO CLEAN CANDLES:
Your can remove dust and fingerprints from a candle by gently rubbing the surface with a piece of nylon or a soft cloth. The cloth can be dry or slightly dampened with water.

DON'T BURN TO BOTTOM:
If you keep burning your candle past the half-inch mark, the flame will get too close to the base of the jar and might cause heat damage to the surface the candle is resting on and to the jar itself. (... and when your candle is all burnt out, clean it out and repurpose it).
