Candle FAQ

Q: What's the proper way to care for your candles?

  1. Trim the wick to a quarter inch before lighting the candle, every single time. When wick is cool, remove the black sooty stuff with fingers or scissors. This also helps to prevent fire hazard.
  2. Keep candle lit until the "melt pool" reaches the edge of the container (about 1-2 hours). This way your candle knows how far to burn the next time, and utilizes most of its wax
  3. Do not burn candle for more than 4 hours at a time.

Q: How far does the scent reach?

Mild scents are meant to enhance a smaller space, such as a bathroom. Stronger scents are good for medium areas like a small sitting room or kitchen. You can find scent strength on each individual product.

Optimize your hot throw: Avoid drafts or open windows or walk out of the room and then re-enter after the candle has been lit an hour or so.
