How to LOVE your candles and get the best scent possible!
BURN IT SAFELY. Always burn your candle on a heat resistant surface and NEVER leave it unattended while lit. Keep it out of drafts, your candle’s worst enemy! Ceiling fans, high traffic areas, and vents all create airflow which aside from being a safety issue, a moving flame can also cause uneven burning and black soot around the jar.
TRIM THE WICK. Using a wick trimmer or a pair of scissors, trim your wick to ¼ of an inch before lighting your candle, every time. This is the optimal height for ensuring an even burn that is free of soot debris. In addition, trimming your wick will help it stay centered in the candle, preventing an uneven melt and minimizing the risk of shattered glass. Heads up - ¼ inch is shorter than you think - a pencil eraser - so don’t be afraid to trim, trim, trim!
REMOVE DEBRIS. Make sure your candle is free of any wick trimmings, matches, and other debris. These can reignite and create a flame that is too large for the candle, posing a safety issue and potentially shattering the jar.
LET THE WAX POOL. Burn your candle between one and four hours at a time for best results. Each time you burn your candle, allow the entire top layer to become a fragrant pool of liquid wax and you'll get the biggest, boldest scent possible.
KNOW WHEN TO SAY GOODBYE. Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame is too high. When only 1/2" of wax remains, it's time to let your candle go.
