Candle Care 101: Tips & Tricks
Tip 1: First burn should be about 3 hours
Your first burn is the most important. To make sure you have an even wax pool, be sure to leave your candle lit for at least 3 hours. Doing this ensures your candle's lifespan starts off on the right foot.
Tip 2: Trim your wicks
Wick trimming is by far the most neglected part of candle burning. If you don’t have wick trimmer, use a little piece of paper towel. Pinch the wick until about a quarter of an inch remains. You should trim your wick after each burn. A trimmed wick ensures your candle will burn smoothly and your wax pool stays clean.
Tip 3: Clean your container
We use a natural coconut wax, which leaves natural soot in the candle container. This is normal, but it's not always the most aesthetically pleasing. Simply get a dry or semi-damp paper towel and wipe that stuff off.
BONUS TIP - Don't hold a lit candle!
This may come as a shocker, but holding a lit candle is extremely dangerous! Just say no.
