  • How do I take care of my candles?
    Candle Care: Don’t burn your candle for 2 days, it’s still in the curing process. (Like wine and cheese it’s aging, we don’t sell a candle unless it’s cured for 2 weeks so they longer you wait the stronger the scent) How to Avoid Candle Wax Tunneling - Burn your candle for long enough to achieve a complete wax pool. With our jars that is 2 hours. (The size wick is key in burning distance- our Wicks burn 1 inch per hour) Trim your Wicks to a 1/4 of an inch before you light your candle. (We cut it for them to 1/4 inch) This will help continue to make the candle burn clean and slow. (Clean meaning reduced SOOT ((smoke)) & slow meaning it will not burn quickly.) Trimming Wicks will preserve your candle for a long time. If kept well it will burn for 55 hours. Extinguish candle when it reaches 1/4 of an inch to the bottom Don’t burn for more than 4 hours without trimming your wick Don’t sleep with candles lit. Don’t leave by kids, pets or drapes.
