The First Burn is the Most Important!
When you light your candle for the first time, always allow the wax to burn so that it melts across the entire surface of the container. This will effectively assist in preventing tunnelling and help promote an even burn for the duration of the candle's life.
Try to avoid burning candles for more than three hours in one sitting. I suggest that after burning a candle for three hours, you should allow the candle to cool for two hours before relighting.
Keep your wick trimmed!
Try to ensure that your wick is always kept to 5mm long at all times. When trimming, always extinguish the flame, let the candle cool down to room temperature, remove any wick debris and trim the wick before relighting. Trimming the wick encourages a more even burn, steady flame, and limit mushrooming and soot.
➳ Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep.
➳ Follow the 2-foot rule - don't place a burning candle within two feet of clothing, books, curtains or anything flammable.
