During initial lighting of your candle, be sure to burn for at least 3 hours to avoid tunneling of the wax.

Between uses, trim the wick to ΒΌ inch each time. Long, untrimmed wicks can cause uneven burning, high flames, smoking or sooting. Use a wick trimmer or scissors to trim the wick.

Keep the candle wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.

Before re-lighting your candle, let the candle cool down completely (a candle takes roughly two hours to cool down). Trim the wick and check for unwanted drafts.
