To get the most out of your candle & the longest burn time,
please follow these directions.
Our candles are carefully tested for wick size.
Your candle should burn properly without any wick trimming at
all and because of the type of wicks that we use, your candle
should be self trimming.
However, should your wick become longer than 3/8" long,
follow the following directions
Trim wick to 3/8" each time before lighting.
You may need to blow the candle out and trim back to
3/8" after several hours of burning and re-light again.
DO NOT trim too short! This will result in a small flame and
the melt pool will not reach the edges of the jar.
Keep wick centered and melt pool free of debris.
When your wax burns down to the last 1/2" you may need to
re-center your wicks if they move. Extinguish the flame first.
Always burn candle at least until the wax has liquefied to the edge
of the jar. A general rule of thumb is one hour per inch of width of candle.
This will prevent any chance of tunneling.
Example: A 3" wide candle will need to burn
for at least 3 hours the first burn.
Make sure candle is on a heat resistant surface.
Keep out of drafts and away from children and pets.
Never leave a burning candle unattended.
These candles are tested to burn in room temperatures of 70 -78 degrees. Keep in mind
your burning environment. If you room temperature is 60 degrees, you may not achieve
a full melt pool or have poor scent throw. If you room is at 85 degrees, your candle may
burn up faster or need the wick trimmed more often.
