When lighting your candle for the first time let it burn until the wax melts across the entire surface of the candle. It will help prevent tunnelling and creates an even burn for the duration of your candles 'life'.
Always trim the wick of your candle to 5mm before each burn (this tip is essential). This will ensure your candle burns evenly and will help prevent mushrooming of your wick. It will also pro-long the life of your candle.
Your candle is finished once the wax is 10mm from the bottom of your jar. Discontinue use at this point to prevent the glass from cracking or causing any heat damage to your surface.
Avoid placing your candle where it will be directly exposed to sunlight, this may cause discolouring of your candle.
Always burn on a heat resistant surface away from drafts. Never burn for more than three hours at a time.
And the most important tip of all... never leave your candle burning unattended or within reach of children and pets.
