How to burn the perfect candle

Burning Candle Tip

Burning the perfect candle

Safety - do not allow candles to burn unattended.  Place candles on a solid, heat proof surface at a height away from littles (children and pets).

First burn - make sure the first time you burn your candle you allow the entire top of candle to melt.  NOT doing this can lead to candle tunneling.  This can take 2-4 hours the first time a candle is lit.


Keep wicks trimmed to 1/4 inch.  Prevents smoking.

Store candles in a dark dry area.  Light can cause some fragrances to yellow.

Keep candle out of a draft - if fragrance from candle is not as strong as you desire try moving your candle - it may be that a cross draft from windows or doors is sucking the fragrance.
