Prior to each lighting, trim the wick to 1/4” for a clean and smoke free burn.
Also, always protect the surface on which the candle sits.
On your first light, allow the entire surface of wax to melt — Minimum of 3 hours. There will be some “wax wall hanging,” but that’s normal.
For all burns, never let it go on for more than 4 hours.
Ensure the wick is centered.
After each burn, adjust the wick while the wax is still molten.
To prevent fire and serious injury:
Always trim wick to 1/4 inch before lighting. Never burn longer than 4-hour intervals. Set candle on heat-resistant surface and avoid drafts. Always burn within sight and extinguish before leaving room. Don’t burn near things that catch fire. Keep away from children and pets. Don’t extinguish with water. Always let wax harden before relighting, touching or moving.
