Follow these tips to keep your candle burning longer and more fragrantly
CANDLES HAVE MEMORY
When lighting your candle for the first time, and each time thereafter, allow the wax to melt all the way out to the diameter of it’s container. Once the melted wax reaches the container, allow it to melt until 1/4” deep. This is called a melt pool.
If your candle is extinguished prior to allowing a full melt pool, all future melt pools will not go past the first one.
Keep your wick trimmed to 1/4”. Occasionally, mushrooming may occur. This is okay and simply means that there is a build up of carbon or a draft. This usually occurs when the candle is richly scented or contains vanillin. After the candle is extinguished, allow wick to harden and carefully trim to 1/4”.
