CANDLE BURNING TIPS AND SOLUTIONS

CANDLE BURNING TIPS AND SOLUTIONS
To properly burn a candle and get the approximate burn time, you must achieve a full melt pool each and every time you light it. This will prevent tunneling, when a candle burns a hole straight down its middle and the edges and sides are left unmelted.

WOODEN WICK CANDLES

With a lighter, not a match, light the wooden wick at the base where the wood meets the wax. To get a good flame it will take at least 5 seconds. Burn the candle until a full melt pool is present (total liquid wax on the top surface). Depending on the size of the candle this will take approximately 1 1/2 hours.

Before your next burn of that candle, be sure that the surface is level, no tunneling, and scrape any charred wood off of the wick with a spoon as you hold the jar upside down over your sink.

Light & Enjoy!

COTTON WICK CANDLES

Be sure the cotton wicks are trimmed to a maximum length of 1/4 inch. Light and burn all wicks until you have achieved a full melt pool. Creating a full melt pool is critical every time you light the candle.

Burn lighting the next time, pinch off excess charred wick and clean the inside of the jar with a cloth.

Light & Enjoy!
