Get the most out of your candle!
Now that you've purchased a high-quality candle, make sure to get a return on your investment. Do yourself a huge favor and follow these super easy tips to maximize burn time and get the best burn quality.
1. Allow the top layer of wax to fully melt before extinguishing the flame.
Doing so will allow the candle to melt evenly - if you skip this step, there will be leftover wax on the sides of the container. For maximum fragrance release, repeat every time you light your candle.
2. Trim the wick to 1/4" before each lighting.
This will ensure an appropriate size flame, maximize fragrance release, and cause little to no sooting. A big flame will burn up the fragrance instead of releasing it. Extinguish the flame if it gets too large or flickers continuously. Trim the wick to 1/4" and re-light.
Our wick trimmers are only $12 and come in rose gold, black, and silver. They are perfect for creating a clean cut, and the long handles make the bottom of the candle easy to reach.
3. Place the candle away from any disturbing airflow (such as fans, vents, open windows, and drafts).
This will help the candle melt evenly and will also minimize sooting.
4. Keep the wick centered.
This will help the candle melt evenly and from side-to-side.
