Light the candle on a heat-resistant surface within sight and away from drafts, children, and pets.
After the first burn, trim the wick to 1/4" before each subsequent burn or when the wick "mushrooms" to maintain a clean burn. No trim is necessary for the first burn.
To prevent tunneling and to ensure an even burn, allow the melt pool to reach the walls of the vessel every use.
Keep the wick centered at all times so the candle burns evenly.
The optimal burn time is 2 to 4 hours.
Keep the wax pool free of matches, wick trimming and other debris.
After Each Use
To extinguish your candle without smoke, use a candle snuffer to gently push the wick into the melt pool. Once extinguished, carefully lift the wick up and re-center it. You can also gently blow out the flame.
Always let the candle cool for 12 hours before relighting.
At the End of the Candle Life
If the candle does not self-extinguish as it is designed to do, discontinue use when 1/2" of wax remains at the bottom of the vessel. Once your candle is finished, re-purpose the hand-blown keepsake vessel.
