Candle Wick Trimming 101
Keep wick trimmed to 1/4 inches at all times. The wick should be trimmed every 4 hours of burn time. Simply extinguish the flame, let the candle come to room temperature, and trim the wooden wick to 1/8 of an inch before relighting. Wick trimmers make this task easy and creates a nice clean cut that properly maintains the wooden wick.
Candles should not burn for more than four hours at a time. Discontinue use when 1/2inch remains at the bottom of the jar. This will prevent possible heat damage to the counter / surface or container.
Always burn candles well away from drafts, other heat sources / anything flammable and out of the reach of children and pets. NEVER LEAVE A BURNING CANDLE UNATTENDED.
