Did you know candles have memory? The first burn of a candle is the most important. If a candle doesn’t burn long enough for the wax to melt down at the edges of the jar, it will create a memory ring. If that happens, the candle will only burn up until that point each time you burn it. Make sure to burn your candle long enough to allow the wax pool to reach to the edges of the jar. This way, you’re using every bit of wax in the jar as you burn it.
Trimming the wick is another golden rule to have a clean burn. Every time you burn your candle, the wick turns to carbon (that black part on top), letting off smoke and creating soot marks on your container. The long or crooked wicks can actually cause uneven burning, dripping, overheating or flaring. The good news is you can use regular scissors or your fingertips to trim the burnt tip of the wick off. Trim the burnt wick before every lighting and remember to always trim the wick when the wax is fully dry.
We also recommend not to burn your candles more than 4 hours at a time. This way, you’ll have a safer and cleaner burn. Also, never burn your candle unattended and always keep it within sight.
