The Ultimate Guide to Caring for Wooden Wick Candles
Prepare Your Candle Before Burning
Always keep your wood wick trimmed to (1/8 to 1/4) of an inch to ensure optimal burn time and flame height. Before relighting your candle, simply clip or pinch the burned portion of the wick, taking care not to get any ash into the wax. Only trim wicks on a thoroughly cooled candle.
Trimming prevents a faster rate of fuel consumption, helps control fragrance throw, minimizes soot and black smoke, and promotes an even burn pool. Make sure to keep your trimmings away from the burning candle as these may reignite!
Allow the Wax Pool to Reach the Edges
The first time + every time you burn your candle, it is essential to burn long enough for the wax pool to reach the edge of the vessel. This can take 2 to 3 hours. Not burning your candle long enough to reach a full-width wax pool may lead to tunneling issues. Never burn your candle longer than 4 hours at a time.
Do Not Leave Unattended
• Keep on a level + heat resistant surface.
• Never burn more than 4 hours at a time.
• Always keep your wick trimmed.
• Keep out of reach of children + pets.
• Keep away from anything flammable.
• Keep away from draft + ceiling fans.
Put Out The Flame Properly
Wooden wicks should always be put out properly after a burn session. When blowing out your candle, make sure to do it gently and slowly, such as in one long breath with your mouth open to avoid the air hitting the flame directly. This will also protect your wooden wick from burning off prematurely, which can cause it to become too short to properly light and burn in future uses.
