This article provides you with essential tips on how to look after your candles for them to last longer and burn better.

When lighting your candle for the first time, make sure to let your candle burn until the wax has melted over the whole surface and even around its sides. This may take anywhere between 2-4 hours. Paying attention to this detail helps avoid tunneling, which is when you light your candle unevenly and only some parts of it are burned. With proper care, you can make sure your candle lasts longer so that you get to enjoy it for many hours.

Trim the candle wick after each burn. This is very important to prevent the candles from smoking on the next burn or from burning the sides of the glass. We recommend trimming them to 1/4th to 1/8th of an inch each time.  Invest in a good pair of wick trimmers that will cut and remove the excess wick cleanly.

If soot ever forms on the inside of the candle vessel, it is critically important to immediately extinguish the flame and wait for it to cool completely before wiping away the soot with a clean, damp cloth.

Please keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.

Extinguish candle with a snuffer and also prevent hot wax from splattering. Do not blow out.

Extinguish the candle if it smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. These signs indicate the candle is not burning properly and the flame isn't controlled. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before re-lighting.

Do not burn your candle all the way down.  Always leave at least ½ inch of non-molten wax at the bottom.

Always burn candle within sight
