how to use

please follow these steps to ensure proper usage and optimal candle logevity: 

  • trim your candle's wick to 1/4" before each lighting. Never attempt to trim a burning candle. Discard the snipped wick in the trash.
  • light the candle and allow the wax to melt to the edges of the container during each burn to prevent tunneling.
  • the wick should always remain centered and away from the sides of the vessel.
  • repurpose the beautiful amber glass jar! 

safety first:

  • don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
  • stop burning your candle when only 1/4" of wax remains.
  • never leave a candle burning unattended, near a draft, or in reach of children or pets.
  • do not allow your wick to curl over, as this can create a larger than normal flame.
  • do not pick up a burning candle or immediately after it's been blown out.
  • protect the surface underneath the candle no matter the material.
