The DOS and DON'TS of candle burning

Don't you wish your scented candles lasted forever? Follow these tips and make them last longer. Plus, prevent black soot, tunneling and improve fragrance throw!


Burn your candle at least two hours on first use

To get the most of your candle, allow the top wax layer to melt fully on first use. This means that you will need to burn your candle for at least two hours when first lighting it. 

Use the right tools

Trim the wick. The longer your wick, the faster your candle will consume. Trimming the wick is key to making it last longer. It also prevents smoke and ensures your candle is burning as tested. We suggest keeping it at the same length as when new, or about a quarter of an inch. Trim every time you use your candle. This will increase its life by 25%.  

Re-center the wick after each burn

If your wick has shifted, it will be burning closer to the glass edge than intended. Re-center it while the wax is still liquid (wait a few minutes for it to cool of first). Re-centering will prevent soot stains from blackening the glass.  

Keep it Clean

If the glass turns black, gently wipe off the stains with a wet tissue or cotton pad. Glass may turn black if you burn the candle too long, so put out the candle after 3 or 4 hours. The scent will still linger!

Reuse your candle glass

The good news is that your candle container can be repurposed. After the candle has burnt completely, simply submerge in warm soapy water.  The remaining wax will pop up. Rinse the glass and dry. Use it to hold flowers or beauty brushes.

Keep dust off when not in use

Keeping the lid on your candle when not in use will prevent dust from forming. A glass dome can also be a stylish way to display your candle at home.
