For best results, keep wick centered and trimmed to 1/4". Wicks may mushroom slightly. I recommend trimming the wick before each use. Be sure to remove the wick trimmings from the candle wax as well.
The first time you burn your candle, I recommend burning it long enough for the melt pool to reach the edges of the jar. Rule of thumb is 1 hour for every inch of diameter of the opening of the candle. Candles have a "memory". If you do not allow them to burn all the way to the edge of the container when you first burn them, they will begin to tunnel down into the wax instead of melting all the way to the edges which will shorten your candle burning times and affect the overall appearance of the candle. The picture to the right is an example of a full melt pool.
Burn candle long enough, each time, for the top to pool across the surface for maximum burning time, extinguish candle and trim wick if candle flame gets too high.
Keep candle free from any foreign matter, matches, wick trimmings, etc.
Place on protected surface.
Recommendations are to always discontinue use when 1/2" of wax remains in candle container.
Do not burn your candle for more that 4 hours. Burning your candle longer may affect the integrity of the container even though I only use heat safe containers.
Allow the candle to cool completely and re-harden before lighting the candle again.
Never place lit candles right beside each other. There should be 1/4" to 1/2" between each candle.
Never pour wax down the drain. Even though you can clean it up easily with water and soap, it is still wax.
Extinguish all candles before leaving home and before you go to sleep.
WARNING: Failure to follow instructions could result in fire hazard or injury. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Do not burn candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Avoid drafts and excessive vibrations. Your container may become hot while the candle is burning. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
