When you first get your candle, your wick may be longer than 1/4th of an inch. If it is, trim it before you light it! This insures that your flame is the perfect size melt the surrounding wax. If your regular scissors struggle with this task, try nail clippers or kitchen shears.
Do your best to not let the candle burn for more than 4 hours at a time. This will help extend the life of your soy wax candle. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to set an actual timer for your candles. Just try and not let them burn all day long… as tempting as it may be!
Before you light!
When you come back to light a used candle you may see a mushroom shaped end on your wick. Before you light your candle, pull off that little bit of ash for less smoke when you relight your candle.
