Keep Your Candle Burning Longer and Safely

Create a melt pool

The first burn of your candle is the most important, not only for enjoying those first precious wafts of fragrance, but also to prevent your candle from tunnelling. 

Allow your candle to fully melt to the edges of the jar to create a melt pool. This melt pool will prevent tunnelling and provide a clean and even burn. Did you know soy wax has a memory? Who knew! If a “memory ring” develops it can tunnel this way for the life of the candle.

Keep it trim

Keep the wick trimmed to ¼” for a cotton wick and  ⅛” for a wood wick in between burns. This will prevent the flame from growing too large and creating soot.

Don't burn forever

I know you're really loving that fragrance throw from your candle buuuut it's best to enjoy your candles for up to 3-4 hours on each burn. After 3-4 hours of burning, extinguish your candle to prevent any sooting and glass breakage.

When your candle has only a 
½" of wax remaining at the bottom of the jar it's time to stop burning, this will prevent possible heat damage to the jar or counter surface it's sitting on.

Burn responsibility

Never leave a candle unattended, around curious children or animals, and away from any flammable objects. Besides, you want to be there with your candle to experience the full ambience of that warm glow!

Reuse and upcycle your jar! 

Your candle jar is reusable! Once you've enjoyed your candle simply soak the jar in hot water, wipe away excess wax, and give your jar a second life. Create a mini terrarium, reuse as a bobby pin holder, get creative and reuse that jar!
