Burn Me: Candle Care 101

Burn Me: Candle Care 101

Maximize the life of your candle!

Soy wax has a memory.

For your first burn, allow your candle to burn for up to 3 hours, or until wax has fully melted to the edge. If it only burns a small radius the first time, it will follow this path and tunnel downwards the next time it's lit.

Trim your wick to 1/4 inch each time before burning. If the flame becomes too large, extinguish the candle, wait until it cools and trim the wick before re-lighting. Check out our helpful wick trimmers here!

Avoid fans, vents, or direct access to air currents. Make sure the candle is on a stable, heat-resistant surface.

(Pictured above: our Gemini candle. It changes colors!)

If you burn your candle for more than 3 hours, make sure you monitor the wick. It may move. Blow it out, let it cool, and then move it back to center before the wax solidifies. 

Always keep your candles within your sight while burning. Make sure to extinguish them before leaving the room. Never use water to extinguish your candle!
