We’re good for you.
Tip #1: First burn.
Your first burn should last 2 to 3 hours. Let the wax melt all across the top surface. Anything less than that will create a tunnel effect where a hole forms in the center. A long first burn will also prevent hot wax from extinguishing your flame in the future. The scent of your candle will be stronger during the second lighting.
Tip #2: Trimmed wicks.
Hold that match! Before burning, cut your wick to about ¼ inch. This will avoid soot buildup. If you see your wick leaning, use tweezers to center it while the wax is still hot.
Tip #3: Safe storage.
Keep your candle out of direct sunlight. Ideally, your room should be 60° to 80° so your candle is not too hot or too cold — but just right.
Tip #4: Burn time.
Each candle has a total burn time of about 25 hours before all of the wax is melted.
