Treat Your Candle With Care….It Will Return the Favor
- Always Trim the Wick to ¼ inch…a little longer is fine but not less, it can cause “burn out”. We use self-trimming wicks so after the initial burn you will not typically have to trim it back, it will slowly curl over on itself as it burns.
- Keep candles out of any strong air flow or direct draft (fans/windows/air conditioners). It can cause uneven burning of the wax itself as well as cause wick issues such as “mushrooming” and soot.
- ALWAYS burn your candle until the melt pool is across the entire top of the candle. If you are extinguishing the candle before this happens the wax “remembers” and will continue to only melt to that point in the future. This will not only waste a great product but you could risk suffocating your wick in a much deeper melt pool because it could start to tunnel.
- Do not burn any candle for more than 4 hours at a time without extinguishing it and giving it a “break”. Overheating is a safety hazard and again, may deplete the overall quality of the candle.
- Avoid “blowing” out the flame if possible. Use of a snuffer is preferred, but if you must blow it out, make sure to do this slowly and with minimal force. This will help avoid possible injury or damage to people/items around the candle. Blowing a candle out can also cause future burning issues with the wick because it can shift out of its centered position while the wax around it is not solidified.
