Basic Candle Care:
As with all candles, the first burn is the most important. Allow the wax to melt to the edge of the jar to ensure a long and even burn and to prevent your candle from tunneling. Keep your wick trimmed to about 1/8-1/4" inch. Allow your candle to burn for 3-4 hours the first time you burn it.
Wooden Wick Candle Care:
Lighting a wooden wick candle is a bit different than lighting a cotton wick. They need a little extra care. When lighting your wooden wick candle, tilt it on an angle and let the flame travel across the length of the wick so the whole wick burns evenly. It may take more than once to light your wick. Do this by breaking off any burnt black crunchy bits before relighting. If you notice the flame getting smaller, allow it to burn for 15 minutes more. If low flame persists, blow it out, and wait for the wax to harden, then break a little bit more of the burnt black crunchy portion. The flame will then return to its proper optimal height.
Do not leave a candle unattended at any given time. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep. Place the candle on a flat, heat-resistance surface away from any objects that could catch fire. Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans, and air currents. Burn a candle for no more than 4 hours at a time. Before lighting it again, make sure to let it cool down completely for at least 2 hours. Discontinue burning the candle when 1/4 inch of wax remains in the vessel.
