Sweet Strawberry 9oz Candle

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Initial Burn:

    • Trim the Wick: Before lighting your candle for the first time, trim the wick to about 1/4 inch (6 mm). This helps prevent excessive smoking and ensures a clean, even burn.
    • Let It Burn: Allow the candle to burn until the melted wax reaches the edges of the container. This creates a "memory ring" and prevents tunneling, which is when the candle burns down the middle, leaving wax around the edges.
  2. Burning Your Candle:

    • Safe Placement: Place your candle on a heat-resistant surface away from drafts, flammable objects, and out of reach of children and pets.
    • Lighting the Candle: Use a match or lighter to ignite the wick. Ensure you do so safely to avoid any accidents.
    • Optimal Burn Time: For the best performance, burn your candle for 2-4 hours at a time. Burning for shorter periods may cause tunneling, while burning for longer can overheat the container.
  3. Candle Care:

    • Trim the Wick Regularly: Before each use, trim the wick to 1/4 inch (6 mm). This helps maintain a clean, smoke-free burn and prevents the wick from mushrooming.
    • Monitor the Flame: Keep an eye on your candle while it's burning. The flame should be steady and not flicker excessively, which can indicate drafts or an untrimmed wick.
    • Avoid Burning to the Bottom: Stop using the candle when about 1/2 inch (12 mm) of wax remains at the bottom. Burning the candle beyond this point can cause the container to overheat and potentially crack or shatter.
  4. Extinguishing the Candle:

    • Use a Candle Snuffer: To safely extinguish the candle, use a snuffer to avoid splattering hot wax. Alternatively, gently blow out the flame while holding your hand behind it to catch any wax splatter.
    • Allow to Cool: Let the wax cool and solidify completely before moving the candle or relighting it.

Benefits of Proper Candle Use:

  • Safety: Following these guidelines ensures a safe environment, reducing the risk of fire hazards.
  • Efficiency: Proper use extends the life of your candle, allowing you to enjoy its fragrance and ambiance for a longer period.
  • Clean Burn: Trimming the wick and burning the candle for optimal periods helps prevent soot and smoke, keeping your air clean and your candle looking beautiful.

Additional Tips:

  • Store Properly: Store your candles in a cool, dark place to preserve their fragrance and prevent melting.
  • Reposition Regularly: Rotate your candle occasionally to ensure even burning and melting.
  • Experiment with Placement: Place candles in different areas of your home to find the perfect spot where the fragrance can disperse most effectively.

Enjoy the warm glow and delightful scents of your candles with these easy-to-follow tips. Proper candle care not only enhances your experience but also ensures safety and longevity, making each burn as enjoyable as the first.
