Follow these steps to ensure a clean, even burn and maximize the life of your candle. With proper care, this 12 oz. candle has a burn time of 75+ hours.
Trim the wick! Trim it to 1/4" before every burn, including the first one. A properly trimmed wick is crucial. Wick trimmers are amazing little tools that cut the wick to size, and even better, it collects the trimmings. Scissors will do the trick also. If you need to, you can break off the wick with your fingers, but that can be messy.
Always allow your candle to reach a full melt pool, this happens when the wax melts clear to the edges of the jar. It takes about two hours for this to happen. Extinguishing your candle too soon can cause the candle to tunnel during the next burn, and we don't want that.
Limit the length of each burn to no more than 4 hours at a time and never ever leave a burning candle unattended.
