Burning tips

Following these simple steps will prolong the life of your candle, enhance your candle burning experience & help keep you safe. 

  1. To light your candle, use long matches or a long-reach lighter. For sustainability purposes, we recommend an electric USB- chargeable one. It’s an eco-friendly alternative because it reduces the need to constantly buy the average long-reach lighter (made from plastic). Buy once and charge away. Less is more! Learn More

  2. The first or 2nd time you burn your candle, let it burn until it forms a melted pool of wax around the entire jar. This is a critical step to help your candle burn evenly.

  3. Always trim your candle wick to ¼ inch prior to each lighting. You can use a wick trimmer, nail clippers, or scissors to do this. We recommend a wick trimmer! 

  4. Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches & debris at all times. 

  5. Do not burn for more than 6-8 hours. (This applies to our candles only) Let your candle cool for at least 1-2 hours before relighting. 

  6. If you notice high flames and/or soot (powdery black cotton ball-looking matter at the end of your wick), blow out your candle, let it cool, and trim your wick before you light it again.
