Recommended Candle Care 

Wood Wick candles create a unique burning experience and a special crackle that adds a warm comfort to the room. Here are some tips on burning your new wood wick candle to have the best burning experience: 

  • Before burning, make sure your wick is trimmed to between 1/8″ – 3/16″.
  • When lighting your candle for the first time, burn until there is an even wax pool across the entire surface of the candle (wait until it touches the sides of the jar). This prevents tunneling, and creates an even burn for the life of the candle. 
  • For subsequent uses, be sure to snap or cut off the ash or burnt wood along the top edge of the wick and then light as usual.
  • Do not to let any debris or ash fall into the candle. 
  • If you notice the flame height getting too low or too high, it may be necessary to extinguish the candle. Once the wax has cooled, ensure that the wick is free of ash or burnt wood. 
  • Do not burn candle more than 2-3 hours at one time. And no longer burn the candle if there is only 1/2 an inch of wax remaining.
  • Never leave your candle unattended, and make sure your candle burns in a safe location, away from children and pets.
  • When not using your candle, store in a cool, dry place, and cover with lid to avoid dust buildup.
