The first burn is the most important
The first burn is the most important. The first time you burn any candle, burn it for 2-3 hours. This will maximize the scent throw, and help avoid “tunneling”—where the candle burns down the middle, leaving wax around the edges.

Once you’ve burned your candle, you can easily give the candleholder a second life by cleaning it out!
Tending the wooden wick keeps it burning cleanly
When you receive your candle, it will have a wick trimmed to the optimal 3/16” height. This helps ensure a safe flame height and less soot. If the wick is too long, the wax will not pull up the wick and the wick will extinguish.
Wooden wicks need a bit of tending before each burn--similar to cotton wicks. Before each burn, be sure to gently snap off the ash or burnt wood along the top edge of the wick and then light as usual.
When burning the candle for a long period of time, you may notice the flame height getting low. If this happens, it may necessary to tap off excess ash or burnt wood along the top of the wick. Then the flame will return to its proper, optimal height.
