There are a few simple things you can do to ensure your candle produces its maximum scent and lasts as long as possible.
- Trim the wick to 1/4 inch before each burn. This will help prevent the wick from mushrooming and smoking, and reduce the chance of pieces of the wick falling into the wax.
- Burn on a level, fire-resistant surface.
- Allow the wax to pool to the edge of the jar before extinguishing the flame (this usually takes a couple of hours). This will prevent the buildup of wax around the sides, ensuring that every possible drop of scented goodness makes it into the melt pool.
- Cover the jar with its metal lid when not in use to preserve the scent.
Following these basic tips will help your candle achieve its maximum performance. Enjoy!
