Candle Burning Guidelines

Trim the Wick

Before you light a candle, always trim the wick to ¼ inch and remove any debris left in the wax pool such as wick trimmings or matches.  

 Wicks that are left long or crooked can cause uneven burning, dripping, flaring and sooting

Trimming wicks before every burn will help prolong the life of your candle. Your candles will burn up to 25% longer if you trim the wick every couple of hours

First Burn

Just like the first cut is the deepest, that first burn is the most important. Candles should burn 1 hour for every 1 inch in diameter of the actual candle size.

For example, a candle that is 2 inches across should burn for 2 hours.

 Our 8oz Jar:  2 hours

Our 15oz & 22oz Jars:  3 hours


Burn time

In general, it is recommended that candles do not burn for longer than 4 hours

and cool for at least 2 hours before relighting


When burning a candle, avoid proximity to fans, air conditioners, open windows, or crowded areas with people walking back and forth. Moving air can disturb the flame and quality of the burn

Storing Candles

Store candles in a cool, dark and dry place with the lid on to keep them clean of dust and debris 


*Recommendation per the

National Candle Association
