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 pool size. If you extinguish too soon, then it may only burn down from the previous pool size.
To extinguish the flame, use 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 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.
- Remove lid from candle.
- Turn on candle warmer to allow candle to melt.
- When finished, turn off the warmer, allow the wax to harden, and then replace the lid until the next use. Recommended use is up to 10 hours per melting.
Maintenance - Adding Refresher Oil
- As needed, add a few drops to melted wax while candle is melted and stir thoroughly. Allow wax to harden then cover and let sit overnight.
- Repeat as often as necessary to maintain desired levels of scent throw.
- Although candle wax remains, eventually the scent throw will be diminished and candle should be discarded.
Important: Do not add extra fragrance oil beyond the original 1/2 ounce refresher oil. The candlewax is unable to absorb higher levels of oil and may become unsafe.
