Candle Burning Tips

When burning your candle, burn it  2 – 3 hours, long enough for the wax to melt to the edge of the container. This sets the "memory" for the pool size.   If you extinguish too soon, then it may only burn down from the previous pool size.

To extinguish the flame, use a wick dipper or uncoated wire to push the burning wick into the melted wax and then pull the wick back up again.   You'll notice that this doesn't cause any smoke as it extinguishes immediately, and it also coats the wick with wax, making the next lighting much easier.

Before re-lighting, use a wick trimmer or toenail clippers to trim the wick to 1/4". A cotton wick can smoke if the wick is too long, and will also shorten the number of hours of burn time.
