WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO LIGHT MY CANDLE?
Wooden wicks can take some getting used to if you’re not familiar with them. Wick maintenance matters but if you ever need any help, reach out! We believe in providing excellent customer service.
✨Remove all large toppings.
Here are a few simple steps to ensure the best burn every time:
- Light the wick all the way across, not just on one end. This helps the candle to burn evenly.
- If your candle extinguishes, cut off the burnt tip and relight it.
- Allow the candle to burn until the wax reaches a full melt pool.
- Keep the candle away from drafts, such as ceiling fans, air conditioners or breezes.
- Never move or handle the candle while it’s lit.
- Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch. If the candle begins to smoke, or if the flame height is greater than 1½ inch, extinguish, allow the wick and wax to cool, and trim the wick.
- Recommended burn time is up to 4 hours at a time.
The first time you light your candle, allow it to burn until you get a full melt pool This breaking in process ensures a clean and efficient burning cycle for the life of the Candle.
Please trim your wicks before each BURN! Trimming your candles wick is important!
By trimming a candle wick to ¼” before each burn, you will get the optimal burn time over the life of your candle. The trimming of the wick not only helps with burn time, but it also ensures you don't get any residue or soot from your wick.
WHAT IF MY CANDLE STARTS TO TUNNEL?
Tunneling can be caused by a few things and here are some tips to prevent and fix it: 1) REMEMBER THE FIRST BURN IS THE MOST IMPORTANT! Letting your candle reach a full melt pool at the first burn is the best way to prevent tunneling your candle has muscle memory!
2) Never burn your candle near a ceiling fan, window, a/c etc. 3) Don’t panic! If your candle has already tunneled, make your candle a tin foil hat with a small hole on the top. This will allow heat to radiate down and melt the edge wax. In most cases, the wax will melt to the edges within 15 - 30 minutes with the foil. When removing the foil hat, remember it will be hot and may burn you.
