CANDLE CARE 101

Our tips for making your candles last longer:


BURN TIME

With any candle to ensure an even burn (no tunneling or uneven wax residue left on the sides as the candle burns down), do a “memory burn” the first time you light any new candle. A “memory burn” is to train the candle to burn evenly down to get your money's worth of burn time. The first time the candle is lit make sure the wax pool or melt goers all the way to the edges of the candle. Burn the candle for at least two hours the first time you burn it.


TRIM THE WICK

Before lighting your candle, trim the wick to 1/4 length. Also, it is important to keep the glass clean in between lightings. Simply wipe the inside of the glass with a paper towel or soft cloth to remove excess soot. You can use wick trimmers but even kitchen scissors will work in a pinch.


SAFETY

Never leave a lit candle unattended. Keep away from young children and pets.



TEMPERATURE

Keep your candles out of direct sunlight, in a cool space and they can last for years. Temperature control will keep the oils and the wax happy together in balance. If not being used for an extended time I like to keep my candles in a cabinet or put a lid on to keep dust out.


FAVORITE CANDLES

For something light and refreshing for the kitchen, I love Wailea. It smells so good when you have a clean kitchen and this candle burning. This one is clean-smelling.
