Wood wicks are more delicate and take more care and patience to maintain.
Using wooden wicks creates a unique & delightful experience, but along with some nuances such as slight variances in the thickness and grain of each wick, each candle may have a slightly different burn. Please read the below for full guidance on how to properly light and maintain your new candle:
On the first burn, allow the wax to fully melt to the edge of the can (2-3 hours max). Do this by breaking off the top black bits of the wick with your fingers, or nail clippers for the wick to be about 1/8″ – 3/16″.
For each new burn, retrim the wick to 1/8." Always allow enough time for the wax to melt to the edge of the tin before blowing out.
Do not burn the candle for longer than 3-4 hours at a time. It's time for a new candle when there is 1/4" wax remaining.
Do's and Don'ts
For safe candle burn, please carefully read the warning instructions below:
• Always burn your candle within sight. Do not burn the candle for longer than 3 hours at a time.
• Burn candles away from flammable materials, children and pets.
• Do not light on or near any objects that can catch fire, and do not place them on or near other heat sources.
• Burn candles on heat-resistant surfaces only.
• Do not allow any dust, debris, wick trimmings, or any other materials to collect in the wax by keeping your lid on when not in use and removing all wick trimmings from the vessel.
• Do not place your candle in a draft-filled area such as a hallway, near a window or by a fireplace.
