Candle Care 101

· · Comments

I must admit that before I started making candles I didn't have a clue how much care and thought went into getting the most out of a candle. In this Blog post, you can find some helpful tips to care for your candles and getting a good burn every time.

How to Care for your candles:

1. The first time you light a scented candle, let it burn for 2 to 3 hours until all the wax on the surface has become liquid.

2. Trim the wick regularly with a wick trimmer (ideal length: 3 - 5 mm)

3. Candle’s wick should be trimmed after every 4 hours of burn time, then trim the wick to 1/8 inch before relighting.

4. When extinguishing the candle, check the wick is upright and centered.
