Allow your candle to burn until the full surface has melted - this ensures that your candle reaches a full melt pool + burns evenly for its full life.
If you extinguish your candle before a full melt pool is formed, your candle will tunnel. This greatly reduces the lifespan of your candle + is not our responsibility to replace/refund in the case of a purchaser tunneling.
Do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Burning your candle for longer than this will create a "mushroom" effect on the wick, which causes an unstable flame, and soot to build up on the container rim and soot to release from the flame
Use some sort of candle snuffer or very gently blow out the flame. You do not want access burnt wick to get into the candle wick. Do not burn for more than 2 - 3 hours on the 8.5 oz tumblers.
Before lighting each time. Trim your work! Candle wicks should be trimmed to 1/4" before relighting - every time.
Trimming your candle wick each time before relighting is imperative to a proper burning candle. It doesn't matter what you use to trim, it just matters that you trim it!
Store each candle in a cool, dry space out of direct sunlight. Keep an eye out. Place your candle within eyesight + away from any flammable items. Avoid keeping candles near areas where there is a draft.
