Candle Burning Tips
Our candles can bring a great ambience to your home for many hours. A few tips are listed here to ensure you get the maximum amount of enjoyment from each candle. PLEASE REMEMBER: A burning candle is an open flame! Keep an eye on your candle, and never leave it unattended.
First time burning:
The first time you burn the candle, please burn long enough for the entire top of the candle to liquify. This is usually 2-3 hours. Wax has a "memory" and may leave wax around the sides on subsequent burns.
It is ALWAYS best to extinguish a candle by dunking the wick, or snuffing it out. When a candle is blown out, it smokes which will ruin the pleasant smell in the room. Never use water to extinguish a candle. It could cause the glass to break. We offer a simple wick dipper which is inexpensive, but works great!
We offer a very simple metal wick dunker.
It is simple but works great!
Trim the wick:
Before you light the candle again, we recommend that you trim the wick to about 1/4". This will remove any carbon build up that may have formed on the wick. Carbon can fall into the wax and could be a fire hazard.
Burn away from drafts:
Candles always burn better when drafty situations are avoided. Drafts can cause uneven burning, or they can cause the wick to "flare" and become a possible fire hazard.
