When lighting your wick for the first time, make sure it is centered as that will help ensure an even burn. It should take 2-4 hours for your first burn. If your candle doesn’t achieve a full melt pool on the first burn it will catch up during a 2nd burn. This will ensure you get an even burn each time you re-light your candle.
Never burn a candle for longer than 4 hours at a time. After 4 hours, let your candle cool, trim the wick and relight.
Prior to every burn of your candle, trim the wick to at least ¼ inch. This prevents uneven burning, dripping or flaring. Don’t forget to straighten the wick! Wicks tend to pull to one side over the other which can create an uneven burn
Avoid drafts, vents or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting, and excessive dripping.
Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For safety measures, stop burning a candle when there is ¼ inch of wax left in the vessel.
Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Before re-lighting, let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts.
Keep the lid on your candle, in-between burns, to prevent dust from settling on your candle.
