Wood wick tips, tricks and safety.
Ensure candle is on a flat surface in a well ventilated, draft free area. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning.
- Make sure your candle is room temperature as cold candles will not burn properly and will start to tunnel.
- Be sure to keep candle safely away from children and pets.
- Wooden wicks require a little more TLC than cotton wicks. Make sure your wooden wick is trimmed to 1/8" - 1/4". To trim, gently pull or snap off the burnt wick with your fingertips. Not trimming the wick will significantly decrease the life of your candle as it will not create an even melt pool or may drown itself out. While burning, if you notice your wick is getting too long and your candle is burning low, gently tap the ash off and your candle will continue to burn properly.
- Wooden wicks do not burn as brightly as a cotton wick, this is normal and will still create a beautiful hot scent throw while allowing your candle to last longer.
- Soy wax has a memory, so it is best to allow your candle to burn for at least 2 hours at a time to ensure the melt pool reaches the edge of your jar.
