Before lighting your candle for the first time, use your wick trimmer to cut the wick to ¼ or ⅛ in.
Open windows, air conditioners, and heat vents should be kept far from the candle to avoid dancing flames. A straight flame distributes heat equally which leads to a clean and even burn; it eliminates excessive smoking, tunneling, and wasted wax around the inside edge of the candle; it enhances the fragrance throw and it extends the lifespan of your candle because it burns slower.
Create a pool
When lighting your candle for the first time, you always want to create a candle pool where the melted wax reaches the side.
Dip your wicks
After you enjoy your candle, (lit for no more than 4 hours!), use your wick dipper to push the wick into the hot wax pool, then lift it up for the next burn. If you experience any tunneling, read our blog about how to fix it!
