Enhance your Candle's Lifespan and Burn Quality



To ensure your candle burns evenly and extends its life, start by trimming the wick to approximately 1/4 inch before lighting it. This step minimizes soot production and promotes uniform burning. We recommend allowing the candle to melt across its entire surface during the initial burn. This process gives the wax a "memory" which helps prevent uneven melting or tunneling in future uses. 



Tunneling occurs when only the wax near the wick melts, creating a narrow hole around the wick if the candle isn't allowed to melt fully across the surface, particularly during the first burn. If neglected, this tunnel can deepen, potentially hindering the candle's ability to light and reduce its overall burn time by creating a direct path downward. 



Despite perfect initial burns, tunneling might still occur with subsequent short burns. If you notice tunneling, an effective method is to create a vented aluminum foil cover over the candle's rim, a technique you can find demonstrated on one of Youtube's many tutorials, by searching "How to fix candle tunneling." This method redistributes the heat towards the candle's edges, leveling our the wax surface and restoring it to optimal condition.



Avoid burning candles longer than 3 to 4 hours continuously and never leave them unattended. To preserve the candle's fragrance and prevent dust accumulation, cover it after extinguishing. These practices will not only enhance your candle's performance but also its aromatic potency.
