Candle Care

Achieve a full melt pool

Burn no longer than four hours.  Achieve a full melt pool every time you light your candle to allow it to burn evenly down for optimal scent diffusion.  Full melt pool means that the melted wax reaches all edges of the container.

Trim your wicks

Center and trim your wicks to 1/4″ prior to each lighting.  Always remove dust, debris and charred wick pieces from your candle before each lighting to eliminate sooting.

Dip your wicks

NEVER blow out your candle! Do not use lid to extinguish, simply dip them!  Use a wick dipper or metal object to gently press wicks down into the hot wax and pull them back up straight.  This immediately extinguishes the flame without the smoky smell.

Know when to extinguish

Stop burning your candle when 1/2″ of wax remains.  Our containers are 100% able to be re-purposed and recycled!

Trouble shooting Tips

  • If the flame seems too low, pour out a small layer of wax and relight. 
  • If you trimmed the wicks too short, scrape out a thin layer of wax and light.
