When you light a candle for the very first
time, let it burn for a while to ensure the
entire surface of the candle melts before you put it out, ideally around 3 - 4 hours. If you don’t, your candle could end up with a rim of solid wax that never ends up melting.
✅ If you want all the wax in your candle to burn, it’s important to let it burn evenly before you put it out.
Once you’ve used your candle a few times, you may notice that soot and other debris have started to accumulate inside the container.
✅ Remove any debris the moment you see it. You can use tweezers (or something similar) to pluck wick trimmings from your candle’s wax whenever you see them.
✅ For a clean, even burn, make sure your candle’s wick is the right length. Ideally, 5mm will give a nice even burn. If it’s longer than 5mm use scissors for a neat trim.
❌ Be sure not to cut it too short as this will cause the wick to get lost in the melted wax and fail to light.
