Trim the wick to ¼ inches before each lighting, including the first use. Discard the trimmed wick piece in the trash; do not leave in candle vessel. 

Why? A wick that is too long will cause excess smoke and sooting, plus excess wick debris to collect at the top of the wick, not fun and not safe.  An untrimmed can also cause the candle to burn too hot, which can affect the fragrance and cause your candle to burn up faster than necessary.


The first time you light your candle, allow the wax to melt all the way to the edges. Keep in mind, this can take up to 3 hours!

Why? Allowing it to melt to the edges during the first use will prevent tunneling. You know, that wax that builds up on the side of the vessel and doesn't allow you to get the get the longest life out of your candle!


Keep the flame away from moving air during use.

Why? This helps to prevent black marks from forming on the side of the glass. 


Use often!

Why? Creating rituals around candle use can make the effects even more powerful and dynamic. Ritualizing also increases mindfulness and is a wonderful self-care practice that promotes overall wellness.


We recommend using a Candle Snuffer or Wick Dipper when you are finished using it, rather than blowing it out.

Why? Blowing out candles without any tool can cause excess smoke, a strong burnt aroma, plus can cause hot wax to blow out of the vessel and onto your wall or candle surface, and no one wants that!
