DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF THE FIRST BURN! To get the best fragrance throw and prevent tunneling you need to burn your candle until you have an even melted pool across the surface. This means you need to burn it for about an hour and a half - a good point of reference is burn one hour for each inch of the diameter of the candle. Doing this will give you the maximum burn time and the best fragrance.
TRIM YOUR WICK! Keep your wick trimmed to 1/4” at all times (cotton wicks only). Need wick trimmers? Get them here For best results trim your wick before lighting your candle to prevent debris from falling into the melted wax.
DON'T FORGET to trim wood wicks! Once the candle has cooled trim the wick trimmed to about 1/8” and keep your candle clean by removing any charred bits that have fallen onto the wax.
MORE WICK TIPS Once the flame is extinguished, check that the wick is still upright and centered. Once it has cooled center the wick while the wax is still molten if needed - this will help ensure an even burn everytime.
LIMITsoot and smoke by using a candle snuffer rather than blowing the candle out - it will also help prevent hot wax from splattering. Find our selection of candle snuffers here.
KEEP IT EVEN! Most surfaces are not level, and this can create an uneven pool of liquid that leads to tunneling and less burn time. Rotate your candle every 30 minutes to prevent this.
TIME YOUR BURN! Don’t burn your candles for more than 4 hours at a time to preserve the wick.
BE SAFE! Never leave your candle unattended and always burn it on a heat resistant surface away from flammable objects
