To ensure a safe and smooth burn, please follow these steps before lighting your candle each time
REMOVE ANY DEBRIS
Make sure your candle is free of any wick trimmings, matches, and other debris. These can reignite and create a flame that is too large for the candle, posing a safety issue and potentially shattering the jar.
TRIM YOUR WICK TO 1/4 INCH
Using a wick trimmer or a pair of scissors, trim your wick to ¼ of an inch before lighting your candle, every time. This is the optimal height for ensuring an even burn that is free of soot debris. ¼ inch is shorter than you think, about the size of a pencil eraser.
BURN FOR AT LEAST 1 HOUR AND NO LONGER THAN 3-4 HOURS
To prevent tunneling, make sure to burn your candle for at least 1 hour at a time or until the melt pool reaches the edge of the glass before extinguishing. Vice versa, burning a candle for longer than 3-4 hours will cause carbon to collect on the wick, leading it to “mushroom”. The wick will then become unstable and produce a dangerously large flame.
