1. The first time you light our scented candle, let it burn for 2 to 3 hours until all the wax on the surface has become liquid.
  2. Trim the wick regularly with the wick trimmer (perfect length: 3 - 5 mm)
  3. Your candle’s wick should be trimmed after every 4 hours of burn time, then trim the wick to 1/8 inch before relighting.
  4. When extinguishing the candle, check the that the wick is upright and centered.

To help maintain a quality flame throughout your candle’s lifespan, you will want to routinely trim the wick. Wicks that are too long in length or jagged can cause uneven burning, dripping, flaring and sooting. Your candles will burn up to 25% longer if you trim the wick every couple of hours. While you might want to burn your candle all the way down to the very last speck of wax, you should only safely melt the wax to the last 1⁄2 inch. However, there are still tips and tricks you can use to enjoy your candle most efficiently. Thanks for allowing us to light your fire! Enjoy!
