CANDLE CARE BEST PRACTICES GUIDE
The first burn of your candle is the most important. Upon first lighting, burn the candle until its entire surface has liquefied, this takes approximately two to four hours. This will create an even burn, prolonging your candle’s life.
Always make sure the surface on which you burn your candle is heat- resistant and stable. This will prevent potential heat damage, ensuring the candle’s glass container does not break. Always keep away from windy areas, curtains, pets and don’t leave your candles while burning.
TRIM THE WICK
We recommend trimming the wick for every 4 hours of burn time. This will prevent your candle from smoking, as well as the potential of burning the sides the glass container. When clipping, first make sure the flame is extinguished, let the candle cool down to room temperature. trim the wick to approximately 1/8” before lighting again. A good pair of wick trimmers will aid in this process.
KEEP IT CLEAN
It’s not uncommon for soot to form on the inside of your candle’s container. If that happens, extinguish the candle, wait for it to cool, then wipe the inside with a clean, damp cloth.
KNOW WHEN TO SAY GOODBYE
It’s hard saying goodbye to your favorite candles, but it isn’t worth the possible heat damage that can occur if you don’t. When ½” of wax remains at the bottom of the jar (after approximately 45 – 50 hours of burn time), it’s time to discontinue use of the product.
SAVE THE VESSEL
The candle may be gone, but its jar can and should absolutely be repurposed. To remove any residual wax, place the candle in the freezer for two hours and take out the wax with a knife so it can be cleaned. When removing wax be mindful the inside white coating may scratch.Use your glass vessel for spare change, makeup brushes, petite plants, and more.
