CANDLE BURNING TIPS AND TRICKS
HOW TO PROPERLY BURN AND CARE FOR A CANDLE.
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!
Scent throw is strongest when a full melt pool is achieved
All wicks on our multi-wick candles must be lit at the same time
The metal hook thing is a "wick dipper". When you are finished enjoying your burning candle, don't "blow" it out..."dunk" it out with the tip of the wick dipper. Once dunked, pull the wick back up straight out of the melted wax so it is ready to burn next time.
Use it on the wooden wick to scrape the burned charcoal off the wick before lighting.
