The first burn of your candle sets the whole mood! Wax holds memory from the first time it’s lit. We recommend burning it for 2.5 - 3 hours the first time you light it (that’s one hour for every inch of the container diameter, just in case you were wondering.) Be sure the candle burns from edge to edge to prevent any tunneling.
Never burn your candle for more than 4 hours. This will prevent carbon from forming on the wick which creates black soot on your jar. Use your candle lid or a snuffer to distinguish the flame to help prevent tunneling.
Always trim your wick to 1/4 an inch each time before lighting. This helps the flame from getting too big and keeps your candle burning at its best.
