IN HIS PRESENCE
Before the first light, place your candle on a flat, flame retardant surface, away from drafts, children, pets, curtains, furniture, etc. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
Your first burn should take 2-3 hours to create a proper melt pool. Always burn your candle at least 2 hours minimum and 4 hours maximum. Burning a candle longer than 4 hours, can decrease the scent throw, compromising the fragrance and increase excessive carbon buildup on the wood wick.
Soy wax is a smart wax! It has memory. It will create a memory ring. So, when lighting your candle for the first time, and each thereafter, allow the wax to melt all the way out to the diameter of its container and until 1/4” deep. This is called a melt pool. The fragrant aroma is released from here. (Note: If you cannot smell the aroma, consider using another candle with it to increase aromatic benefits or use the candle in a smaller room.)
Store candles in a cool, dark and dry place with the lid on to keep them clean of dust and debris, and to help protect the wax and fragrance. Highly fragrant candles have a life span of 6 to 12 months, depending on the scent. If you enjoy fragranced candles, then use and replace them often to avoid deterioration in appearance and performance.
Discard your candle once the remaining wax reaches A HALF INCH (1/4”) deep. Remember, you can re-purpose or re-gift the glass vessel.
Wood wicks burn longer, are cleaner, and introduces a cozy crackling ambiance. They do require extra care. Use these tips to get the most out of your candle:
Trim your wood wick to 0.2" (5mm) above the wax on the initial burn)
Always trim your wick before each use, removing all charred wood from previous burns. If you don’t, the wick may not stay lit long enough to fuel the flame, causing it to extinguish itself. To trim a wooden wick we suggest a wick trimmer.
Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts before re-lighting.
