Caring For Your Candle
One reason we use wooden wicks over cotton wicks is that many cotton wicks are dipped in petroleum-based burning agents.
Our natural wooden wicks are not dipped in any burning agents and provide a slow, natural, and clean burn.
As with many things that are good for us, the wooden wick may take a little more care than your average cotton wick.
From a consistent flame to longer life of the candle, following the simple tips below will make sure you get the most enjoyment out of your candle.
Three Things to Keep In Mind
Give it time.
Be sure to let the melted pool of wax reach the edges of the jar before extinguishing the flame. This will prevent tunneling.
If the flame goes out shortly after the first time you light it, don't panic. It's normal for the wick to burn down closer to the wax line and then go out. Simply trim the burnt portion and re-light.
Keep in trimmed.
Each time before lighting your candle, trim the wick by removing any loose, burnt portion from the previous use.
You can a small piece of paper towel or cloth if you like keeping your fingers super clean. :)
It's always good practice not to burn a candle more than 2-3 hours at a time. This will help to protect the integrity of the candle and will also extend the total hours of burn time.
