Candle Performance Tips

In order to maximize the performance of your candle, please observe the following tips:

  • On your first burn, allow your candle to burn long enough to create a full melt pool (when wax has completely melted the full diameter of the vessel and about 1/4" to 1/2" deep).  For the traveler tin this should take 1.5-2 hours and for the cocktail glass and showstopper candles 2.5-3 hours.  All candles have a burn "memory".  When you don't allow your candle to create a full melt pool on the first burn you increase the likelihood your candle may never reach full melt pool and "tunnel" on subsequent burns.
  • Always trim your wick between lightings.  Your wood wick came pre-trimmed to the appropriate length for your first burn (3/16").  Prior to each subsequent burn simply pick off the black char at the top of the wick and light your candle.  Failure to remove the black char could result in a higher flame height and hotter burn shortening the total potential burn time of the candle.
  • Due to wood wicks taking longer to ignite than cotton wicks (5-10 seconds) it is best to use a stick lighter instead of matches.  In order to light your candle properly, hold your candle at an angle and light one end of the wood wick with your stick lighter.  Allow the flame to travel the length of the wood wick before safely setting your candle down.   
  • When not in use, store your candles at room temperature.
