Candle Care


 

We’ve done a lot of work to get these candles to be super long lasting, BUT, they’ll only burn so well if they’re not cared for. Here is your essential guide for candle care.

Burning

The first burn is essential to the life of your candle. Wax has a memory (aww!) and if it does not burn to the edges of the container on the first burn, it will never melt that wax, and you’ll shorten the life of your candle.

The first burn should last about 2-4 hours. Burn on a flat surface in a draft free space. If the candle is burning unevenly, rotate it - not all surfaces are perfectly flat.

Each subsequent burn should also last long enough for the wax to melt to the edges.

Wicks.

Before lighting your candle, trim the wick to 1/4”. This prevents the candle from burning too hot (shortening the life of your candle by melting the wax too fast).

Don’t trim the wick until the candle has cooled and the wax and wick have hardened.

If you don’t trim the wick or trim when it is warm, the wick will curl and be swallowed by wax, ending your candles’s life.
