Proper Candle Burning

Many people do not know that there is a proper and improper way to burn a candle to maximize the scent and make it longlasting. Please read below for how to burn your Blessings Candle.

One of the most important things is to not burn your candle near a draft.  It will cause uneven burning across the top.  Candles have memories.  Once a bad burn has started, it will continue.  Tunneling is most common in a bad burn or draft, where the wax burns down leaving the outer edges unburned.

Regardless of what a company claims, fire is fire, and all candles will produce some soot.  We have chosen the highest quality wicks with no zinc or leads, to greatly reduce the amount of soot.  Any soot that collects on the rim of the container, simply take a paper towel and wipe around the container rim to keep your candle looking beautiful.

Following these guidelines will help you reduce the chance of tunneling and incomplete burning.  Most of all, it will help you get the maximum enjoyment from your Blessings Candle!

22 oz. candles:
Burn candle for approximately 3-4 hours before extinguishing the wick.  This allows a "meltpool" to form.  Some scents may take a bit longer. This also allows the wax to melt evenly across and down the jar with no side residue.

Always keep wick trimmed to 1/4".  A long wick will cause your candle to smoke and leave soot.  Stop burning candle when only 3/4" of wax is left.  DO NOT BURN all the way to the bottom, as this could cause the jar to crack and break spilling the melted wax!

11 oz. candles:
Burn candle for approximately 2 hours before extinguishing the wick. This allows a "meltpool" to form.  Some scents may take a bit longer.  This also allows the wax to melt evenly across and down the jar with no side residue.

Always keep wick trimmed to 1/4".  A long wick will cause your candle to smoke and leave soot.  Stop burning candle when only 3/4" of wax is left.  DO NOT BURN all the way to the bottom, this could cause the jar to crack and break open, spilling the melted wax!

**After the first burn, you always want to trim the wicks to 1/4 inch and burn until you have a meltpool across the top of the candle.  This means a layer of melted wax all the way across the top.

Tips & Tricks:

If you have trimmed the wicks too short and your candle is drowning, blow out the wicks and immediately dip a rolled up paper towel into the wax and let it soak some up.  This will give you enough wick to light the next time you burn it and will get your candle back on track.

If you have a draft and you have uneven burning with wax forming on one side, take a knife and cut out the piece of wax until it is even or you can take a fire starter and melt the uneven section down.  This will help get your candle back on track.
