Wooden Wick Candle Care🕯️

Ensure a delightful candle experience by following these simple steps for container candles with wooden wicks:

  1. Trim Your Wick: Before each burn, trim the wooden wick to around 0.3cm-0.4cm. A long wick can lead to uneven burning and excess smoke.

  2. First Burn Matters: Allow the candle to burn until the entire wax pool reaches the edges of the container during the first burn. Skipping this step can create a tunnel effect, wasting wax.

  3. Trim Soot Buildup: If you notice soot accumulating on the wooden wick, trim it with scissors or your fingers before relighting. Soot can affect the candle’s performance. 

  4. Draft-Free Zone: Keep your candle away from drafts. Drafts can lead to uneven burning and a wobbly flame.

  5. Extinguish Safely: Use a snuffer or gently blow out the flame to avoid splattering wax. Never use the lid to extinguish the candle.

  6. Max Burn Time: Small candles should burn for a maximum of 1.5 hours to prevent overheating and excessive fragrance release.

By following these guidelines for wooden wick candle care, you’ll enjoy a cleaner burn and a longer-lasting candle. Neglecting them can lead to uneven burning, wasted wax, and a less enjoyable experience. Happy candle burning! 🕯️✨
