We know you are excited to light Your Wick, but taking a moment to trim that wick to 1/8" is going to help your candle burn a little bit slower and a little bit longer. Make sure you're doing this when the candle wax is solid, right before you light it. Discard those trimmings in the trash and make sure none land in the glass! Those little flammable dots need to be kicked out for goo
After you blow your candle out, let it cool and check the wick. Gently guide it back towards the center, as candle wicks tend to wiggle around and get out of place. If it gets too close to the glass, it can cause the vessel to heat up and crack, which won't be fun for you or your nice coffee table. Plus, the straighter the wick, the longer the burn time!
The first time you light up a new candle, let it burn for 3-4 hours until the pool of wax reaches the edge of the glass. If you don't, you run the risk of burning straight down the center of the candle and missing out on precious hours of fabulous fragrance.
4-5 hours is plenty of time to fill your home with the scents you love. Any longer and your candle may get too hot and the wick may get too long. Put that flame out and let your candle solidify before trimming and lighting again.
Place your candles on non-flammable, heat resistant surfaces, and never leave a burning candle unattended. Also, be aware that placing a hot candle on a cool surface like marble or glass may cause the vessel to crack.
Industry-standard safety measures suggest not burning any candle all the way to the bottom of the vessel, and Your Wick is no different. We know, it's hard to come to terms with losing your favorite scent, but consider it an opportunity to give something new a try or keep your favorites stocked up!
