We want you to get the best possible burn out of our luxurious, coconut-soy candles! Practicing good candle safety - though it may sound silly - is the optimal way to achieve this. When you follow these simple steps, you'll be rewarded with an even burn, minimal soot, and long burn time.
Upon the first light, leave your candle burning for about 4 hours or until you've reached a complete melt pool (meaning that all of the wax on the top layer of the candle has melted). This will increase your scent throw and create a "memory" for your candle to burn evenly in the future. You don't want your candle to "tunnel" and burn down the middle while leaving extra, unburned wax around the perimeter of the glass.
Never burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Extinguishing your candle by blowing it out is perfectly acceptable! However, if you wish to reduce the smoke from this method, consider purchasing a wick dipper! Remember to straighten your wick after it's been blown out.
Clear your candle of debris and wick droppings.
Trim your wick to 1/4" between burnings. This is an important step to take to reduce flame size and soot. If a candle's flame burns too high, it can cause the glass to reach unsafe temperatures.
If you're noticing that your candle is burning unevenly, check that your wick is centered and that you have placed the candle in an area away from drafts.
