wick trimming

Keep wick trimmed to 1/4 inch at all times. The wick should be trimmed every 4 hours of burn time.

Simply extinguish the flame, let the candle come to room temperature, and trim the wick to 1/8 of inch

before relighting. Trimming the wick eliminates black jar and allows your candle to burn longer.

 

This means less soot is formed while the candle is burning. The formation of soot has nothing to do with the

type of wax (soy, paraffin, vegetable, or other) as all burning items create soot as a product of incomplete

combustion. It all has to do with the quality of the wick and the proper care of the candle!

 

Candles should not be burned for more than four hours at a time. It is recommended that they burned

for four hours, then extinguished and let cool for two hours before relighting. Discontinue use when ½" of wax

remains at the bottom of the jar. This will prevent possible heat damage to the counter/surface or container itself.

The glass can get hot on the bottom as the flame nears the base of the jar and most of the

wax has been consumed. When this instruction is followed, the glass will not get too hot.

 

Always burn candles well away from drafts, other heat sources, anything

flammable and out of reach of children and pets.

Never leave a burning candle unattended
