candle care & troubleshooting
avoid tunneling by making sure to melt the entire surface of your candle on your first burn. this is to make sure that you don’t waste your candle by leaving a tunnel in the center or burying the wick in wax.
always trim your wick to ¼ of an inch before lighting up your candle. this prevents soot from getting in your candle and controls your candle flame.
sing it with me: we are never ever ever leaving our [lit up] candles unattended, like ever~ always remember that fire spreads quickly and candles involve naked flame, no matter how small it is.
always place your candles in flat surfaces and out of reach of children and pets.
never burn your candles beyond 4 hours. the glass vessel may get too hot and break.
store your candles away from sunlight and heat. candles are best kept in the same environment that sad girls in the ‘depression’ stage prefer - cold, dark places. storing your candle properly protects the wax and its scent.
we all have to accept that nothing lasts forever. when you can see the bottom of your wick, it’s time to let your candle go. it just means that there is no longer enough wax in your candle to make sure that your container will not overheat. there is always a brand new candle waiting for you!
