- Trim your candle to 1/4" before the first lighting to ensure maximum release of the fragrance and a steady sized flame with minimal sooting.
- When you light the candle for the first time, make sure the top fully liquifies creating a “melt pool”. This will help prevent “tunneling” in the middle of the candle when you relight and ensures you always get the full strength.
- Remember to trim your wick to 1/4" each time the candle is to be relit.
TRIMMING THE WICK + LIGHTING
- Do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time to prevent wick mushrooming (carbon buildup) which can cause issues such as sooting and an unstable wick that will start to lean over from the weight of the buildup. Burning for too long can also make the candle vessel too hot to the touch and creates a wax pool that is too large to support the wick.
- Conversely, we suggest that you do not burn often for short periods of time where the top doesn’t fully liquify, as that can create a wax tunnel that will be difficult to fix later.
- After a 4-hour burn, wait approximately 1 hour before trimming and relighting candle to allow your candle to cool properly.
- Burn your candle only on a stable, heat resistant surface (or use a coaster), and avoid using in drafty areas. Do not burn your candle near other burning candles or hot objects to prevent overheating and cracking.
- Most importantly, never leave a lit candle unattended and keep away from the reach of children and pets!
END OF CANDLE
- Discontinue use when 1/2" of wax remains.
- Burning a candle without enough wax will lead to the candle jar overheating and hot glass could potentially crack.
- Candles should be stored out of direct sunlight, at room temperature (c. 75°F/80°F) to maintain the fabulous fragrance and the integrity of the wax.
- To extend the life of your candle, place lid on top and put away when not in use. Be sure to allow your candle wax to cool and solidify before moving.
