Trim the wick to 1/4 of an inch before each burn.

When lighting your candle for the first time, burn until the wax melts across the entire surface to the sides of the jar to prevent tunnelling.  This may to take 2-3 hours.

Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and other debris.

The surface of your candle may appear lumpy after burning.  This is because of the natural ingredients contained in the wax and will not affect the performance of your candle.

Do not burn for longer than 4 hours at a time.

Keep burning candles away from children and pets.

Always protect the surface on which the candle sits.

Never leave a lit candle near flammable objects such as curtains, walls, bedding, table cloths etc.

Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or going to sleep.

Do not burn your candle all the way to the bottom and stop use when approximately 1/2 an inch of wax remains.



Trimming a wick isn’t the only thing you can do to care for your candle and make it last longer. These six tips will help keep your candle looking as nice as the day you bought it:

  1. Do burn the candle for roughly two hours during its first burn. This will ensure that the entire first layer of wax becomes liquid and then resolidifies. If you don’t burn the candle for long enough, only the area immediately around the wick will melt. This can lead to tunneling, in which only the center of the candle burns down, leaving a ring of hard wax about the outside of the candle.

  2. Don’t burn the candle for more than four hours at a time. Once you get past the four-hour mark, the wax begins to super heat, which can reduce the candle’s scent. It also contributes to the creation of smoke, which marks up the candle’s container and further messes with the scent.

  3. Do recenter the wick if it moves or bends over. If you notice the candle wick has moved during burning, blow out the flame and let the candle cool. Then, use your fingers, tweezers or tongs to move it towards the center and straighten it up. Keeping the wick trimmed short will also help stop it from falling over.

  4. Don’t leave the candle in a drafty area. Stray breezes cause the candle to burn unevenly and can even put the flame out completely. Keep away from vents, fans, open windows, AC units and any other locations where the flame might be exposed.

  5. Do keep the top of your candle clean and dust-free. If you’re not burning your candle often (though we don’t know why you wouldn’t!), the top will accumulate dust and other particles. Storing it in a covered cabinet or replacing the lid (if there is one) can help keep the top clear. If you do notice some dust on it, carefully wipe off the top of the wax with a damp cotton pad before lighting it again.

  6. Don’t let soot marks accumulate on the glass—this will make them much harder to clean off eventually. Dab a little bit of soap on a damp cotton pad and wipe it over the soot until the stains come off. Let the glass dry completely before lighting the candle again.
