5 Ways To Take Care of Your Candles

Follow these tips to get the best (and safest!) burn.

1. Trim that wick

Before lighting, trim the wick to 1/4" using scissors or one of our wick trimmers for a clean, safe burn and increased candle lifespan.

2. Let it burn

Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar every burn to prevent tunneling - especially important on the first burn!

3. Safety First

Never leave a lit candle unattended, and don't burn for more than 4 hours at a time. To protect the surface below from heat, place your candle on a coaster or tile.

4. Know when to stop

Don't burn your candle if only 1/4"-1/2" of wax remains. Lighting a candle without enough wax can overheat the jar.

5. Reuse it

Once the candle is finished, clean out the jar! Now you've got a new planter or pencil holder or whatever you'd like. More tips on how to reuse here.
