How To Use
Keep the wick trimmed to around 1/4″. If a flame starts to grow too large or flicker, that means it is time to trim the wick.
How to hug a candle:
- Gentle push the soft wax on the outside in. This will push up the wax pool to shorten the wick. This also maximizes burn time.
- Hug candle throughout a burn session and after use.
To extinguish: Gently dunk wick into the pool of wax and straighten back up.
- Keep candle away from air flow to prevent smoke
- Burn pillars for about 1 hour per inch in diameter (e.g. 2″ wide pillar should be burned for around 2 hours per burning session)
- Keep your beeswax candle out of the sun to prevent fading
How to remove bloom: Gently wipe with nylon or a soft cloth. (Wiping away the bloom is optional and an aesthetic choice)
Gentle reminder: Never leave a burning candle unattended!
