Candles require a bit of maintenance to get a nice, clean even burn.
TRIM THE WICK: Before lighting always trim the wick to 1/4 in and remove any wick debris this encourages an even burn, steady flame and limits sooting/mushrooming of the wick.We suggest trimming the wick every 4 hours of burn time. When wick trimming, you should always extinguish the flame and let the candle come to room temperature. Do this if the flame ever becomes too large.
LIGHTING THE CANDLE: What will you need? Matches or a lighter. Always remember to trim the wick before lighting the candle. Light the match and hold the flame to the wick.When it lights, leave the candle to burn. Candles burn best in still air but if you can’t avoid this, turn the candle periodically to avoid uneven burning.
BURNING THE CANDLE: Burn the candle for at least 2 hours in order to achieve a full melt pool. This is guarantee an even burn for the reminder of the candle. Soy wax has a "memory" which if burned correctly, helps to avoid the candle from "tunneling" down the center of the container and may cause you not to get the best scent throw. By allowing your soy candle to create it's initial memory burn, will help the candle to create a full melt pool of wax, and increases the candle's scent throw.
PUTTING CANDLES OUT Use a snuffer or a spoon to put out your candle. It's safer than blowing them out, which can send sparks and hot wax flying and the wick may continue to glow and emit smoke. Double-check your candle is extinguished.
