HOW TO MAXIMIZE THE LIFE OF YOUR CANDLE

 

It’s more than just a candle — it’s a frequency, a scent that reminds you of a moment, or it aligns with you at that moment. To maximize your experience we created a list that will help you get the most out of your candle.

 

01.

TRIM YOUR WICK.

This is so important! Before or after every lighting, trim the wick down. By doing this it will create longer burn time, minimize the black soot in your jar and control the size of the flame.

02.

REMOVE DEBRIS.

Keep the wax free of wick trimmings, dust, and any other debris. If you have a lid, place it back over the candle when you’re not burning it. This will prevent dust from gathering over the top of the wax and provide a cleaner burn.

03.

PLACEMENT.

Avoid placing your candle in areas that have a draft or wind flowing through. This will help prevent sooting and rapid or uneven burning.

04.

THE FIRST BURN.

When lighting a candle for the first time, keep it lit until the wax fully melts across the width of the candle. This will create an even burn, help prevent tunneling, and will also release maximum scent throw. It will take about 1 to 3 hours for this process (depending on the size of the vessel).
