To get the most out of your candle, there are a few simple things you can do. The more care you take, the more you will get from your candle.
Keeping the wick trimmed to 1/8 of an inch at all times helps control the amount of “fuel” or wax that is present. By keeping the amount of fuel limited, the flame will create ideal complete combustion where carbon particles are absorbed by the flame. This means less soot is formed while the candle is burning.
Tins are perfect for small rooms and spaces. Jars for larger rooms. Quality made candles will completely liquefy, giving you the maximum scent throw.
The first lighting should be for an hour max, or until the liquid touches the sides. This ensures an even burn throughout the lifetime of the candle and prevents any uneven wax sticking to the sides when it dries.
Never burn the candle for longer than 2-3 hours at a time or when the candle is ½ full of wax. This is to deter from heat damage to surfaces.
Never leave a burning candle unattended!
