Tips for a Wonderful Candle Experience
TRIM THE WICK. Make sure to trim the wick to ¼” before lighting and each time a candle is re-lit.
MAKE THE FIRST BURN COUNT. Soy wax has a memory and should be allowed to achieve a full melt pool on its very first burn. If it is extinguished prior to allowing a full melt pool, all subsequent melt pools will not go past the first one, creating the dreaded tunnel.
To create a full melt pool, burn the candle for a minimum of one (1) hour for every inch of it's diameter. All future burns should follow the first one's path and melt fully to the sides. Do not burn longer than 4 hours at a time.
CREATE A WAX POOL. To get a strong and long lasting scent, make sure to allow the top layer to melt into a pool of liquid wax.
BURN SAFELY. Always burn within sight and on a heat resistant surface. Keep away from things that can catch fire. Always keep away from pets and little hands. Never burn a candle unattended!
SAY GOODBYE. Time to let your candle go when only ½” wax remain.
