Candle Care Tips

Give it a good first burn

When you light your first soy candle for the first time, let the whole surface melt from edge to edge or it will be tricky to melt past that initial wax 'ring' on future burns. A good first burn prevents the candle from 'tunneling' when the wax near the center of a candle burns deeper than the edges. If you are in a rush avoid burning it so you can ensure you have the time to relax and enjoy it on the first burn. This may take 1-2 hours so sit back and relax!

Trim the wick

With every consecutive burn, keep the wick trimmed to about ¼” inch. This allows a slower, more even burn and prevents soot from building up on the side of the jar.  You do not need a wick trimmer, do this by pinching off the curled bits of the black wick. Do not remove the entire black part!


Make sure the candle has cooled down completely before trimming by hand.
