After each burn, trim the wick to 1/4 of an inch using a wick trimmer for a safe, even burn and increased candle life. Before each burn, remove debris and buildup to avoid excess smoke. Keep the wick centered at all times.
When you burn, allow the candle wax to melt to the edges of the glass every time to prevent tunneling. This is especially important during your first burn as soy wax has a memory. If allowed to burn across the entire candle on the first burn, your candle will last well over 50+ hours.
Never leave a lit candle unattended, and don't burn your candle more than 3-5 hours at a time. Always protect the surface below your candle from heat. Do not burn your candle if there is less than 1/2 inch of wax remaining in the glass. Burning a candle without enough wax can overheat the jar or cause breakage.
