Burning Instructions

What safety rules should I follow when burning my candle?

Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers repeatedly, or the flame becomes more than 1" high. Cool, trim wick and re-light.

Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Do not burn soy candles for more than 3 hours at a time.

 

What do I do the 1st time I burn my Candle?

 Burn your soy candle until it is melted completely across the top. This will help prevent your soy candle from tunneling (burning down in the center). 

You should burn your candle 1 hour for each inch of its diameter, until you receive a full melt pool (soy wax is melted across the entire top). A candle 3" in diameter should be burned for three hours to establish it's memory. This allows your candle to get its full melt pool which will increase the scent throw of the candle. If a soy candle isn't given a proper memory burn, especially on the first burn, it can cause your candle to not provide a good scent throw.

What do I do if I cant smell my candle?

If your candle has been burning for at least an hour and you still don't feel it is fragrant, try leaving the room or walking outside for at least 10 minutes, then come back in. This will allow your olfactory senses time to adjust. Many times you will fine, the olfactory becomes accustomed to all surrounding aromas and blocks them. When returning you should then smell the fragrance
