We take great pride in producing the best candles and wax melts possible. Below are some tips on getting the most out of your candle while maintaining safe burning practices.
Always burn within sight. We cannot stress this enough.
Please keep your candles away from flammable objects.
Keep away from children and pets. We all know how cats can get! Also another reason to burn within sight. If you feel it may be an issue either way we suggest wax melts.
Always, always, trim your wick before lighting. You will want to trim to at least 1/4". This helps reduces soot which you always want to avoid. No matter how clean a candle is made if not properly cared after soot can and will happen. You can even trim down to 1/8 but keep in mind if you trim it too low the melted wax can drown out the flame.
Keep the candle free of any foreign materials such as wick trimmings.
Keep the candle on a flat, fire resistant surface.
This next one is a huge point to make. Please do not burn your candle more than 4 hours at a time. You can always snuff the candle, let it cool and harden, and then trim and relight if you want the candle to go throughout the day. If you burn more than 4 hours at a time you risk the integrity of the candle jar.
Discontinue use once the candle gets down to 1/2" to 1/4" of wax left in the jar. You run the risk of overheating the jar.
Note: When the candle gets this low it is common for minimal soot to appear.
How to get the Best Scent throw
A lot of people do not realize environmental factors when burning candles. You will want to avoid drafts, vents, or otherwise air currents.This will help on multiple fronts. First, it will prevent issues with candle burning too quickly, uneven burns, or causing soot. Secondly, it will cause less dispersion of the scent which is ultimately why you bought the candle in the first place.
If you follow the proper wick trimming guide, burn times, and avoid drafts, vents, or air currents you will get the most out of your candle.
