the first burn
The candle should be burnt to the edges during its first flame to prevent the wax from tunnelling.
Never leave your lit candle unattended, and don't burn for more than 4 hours at a time. Burn only on stable, heat resistant surfaces.
the last burn
Once the wick has reached 1/4"-1/2" in length, it is the end of its life. Lighting a candle without enough wax can cause the jar to overheat. Please recycle the jar or drop off to one of our recycling stations so that we can reuse it for the next candle lover.
