Is there really a right way to burn a candle? The answer is ‘yes’, and we are pleased to be able to supply you with this guide that contains all you need to know to get the most out of your scented candle.
Firstly, we hope you have found a nice place for your candle, and that you enjoy the scent.
Before lighting your candle for the first time, make sure to trim the wick to about 0.5 centimetres.
We recommend you burn this candle for no longer than 3 hours at a time, or until the melt pool reaches the glass edge, to keep the wax from tunnelling. The wooden lids are designed to be used as a base for the lit candle to help protect from sensitive surfaces and as a snuffer to extinguish the flame.
Let the wax cool completely and trim the wick once again to 0.5 centimetres. Always leave 0.5cm of unmolten wax at the base of the candle to prevent prolonged exposure of direct heat to the glass and surface below.
Keep the lid on when not lighting your scented candle. It keeps it clean of dust and debris and helps protect the wax and the fragrance.
