CANDLES ARE MEANT TO BE BURNED,
LETS GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR CANDLE!
The first burn of your candle is the most important! Soy wax holds memory from the first time it is lit. For best results: burn your candle for at least 3-4 hours or until the wax melt pool reaches all edges of the container. If this step does not occur your candle will most likely tunnel and eventually drowns out the wick.
Let your candle create a full wax pool each time you light it. This will ensure the strongest fragrance possible and getting the most burn time out of your candle. You may see uneven surfaces after burning your candle due to the natural soy wax base, this is totally normal!
These are all natural wicks and are not treated with any lighting agents. The wood wick is not "treated" - it's real wood, which means you will need to hold the flame to it longer and make sure the wood catches the flame insuring the wick stays burning.
Do not trim your wood wick! If you are having issues relighting your wood wick or notice the flame low and/or inconsistent, use your fingertips to gently snap off the ash or burnt wood along the top of the wick, then light as usual. You will feel the difference between the burnt wood and the base. This rule also applies to traditional wicks as well - use your fingers to break off the burnt tops. This helps keep your candle clean and prevents the flame from getting too large, and keeps your candle burning at its best!
Place candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface. Extinguish a candle if the flame gets too large or close to the container or candle holder. Stop use when only 1/4” of wax remains.
If you choose to burn your candle longer than 4 hours at a time, make sure you're continuously checking the heat of the container. Glass will shatter when it gets too hot. You may also notice the flame height getting too high or too low, it may be necessary to tap off the excess ash on your wick.

Follow the 2 foot rule - don't place a burning candle near clothing, books, curtains, walls or anything flammable. Place burning candles at least 3 inches apart from one another.
Keep lit candles away from drafts, ceiling fans and any air currents. This will keep the flame centered and ensures an even and safe burn. Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep.
