Candle care

How to optimize the life of your candle:

MOST IMPORTANT: Keep your wooden wick trimmed short — preferably to 1/8th of an inch. Use a wick trimmer or a nail clipper for the cleanest trim. You may also remove excess wick with your fingers before each burn. Never touch a wick that has just been extinguished.

Additional candle care tips:

  • Do not burn your candle for longer than 4 hours at a time.
  • If you think your flame is too high and it's producing black smoke, extinguish the candle, trim the wick to the ideal height of 1/8”, then re-light.
  • With every burn, particularly the first burn, allow the top layer of wax to melt evenly across the jar before extinguishing your flame.
  • Keep dust and debris (like wick trimmings) out of wax. Use tweezers, a toothpick, or the reverse end of a spoon or fork to gently remove any debris.

General candle safeties:

  • Burn candle within sight and never leave a candle unattended.
  • Keep away from combustibles.
  • Keep away from pets and children.
  • Avoid drafts.
  • If burning more than one candle, leave more than 6 in between each burning candle.
  • Do not burn your candle for longer than 4 hours.
  • Never touch or move a hot or lit candle.
  • Burn candle on a level, fire- and heat-resistant surface.
  • Stop burning your candle when 1/2" of wax remains.

REMEMBER RULE NO. 1: Keep your wooden wick trimmed short.
