Candle Care Instructions for Wooden Wicks:

Wooden wicks offer a unique and captivating flame experience. To make the most of your wooden-wick candle, follow these essential care instructions:

  1. Trim the Wick: Before lighting your wooden-wick candle, trim the wick to about 1/4 inch. Wooden wicks often need to be shorter than traditional cotton wicks. This helps ensure the flame touches the wax pool, promoting an even burn. Trim any charred wood for a cleaner, safer burn.

  2. First Burn: Allow the candle to burn until the wax melts evenly across the surface, reaching the edges of the container. This prevents tunneling and maximizes the lifespan of your candle. The flame may seem smaller initially, but it will grow as the candle burns.

  3. Burn Time: For an optimal burn experience, allow the candle to burn for 2-3 hours at a time. This prevents the candle from burning down the center and ensures an even melt pool.

  4. Extinguish Safely: To extinguish the flame, use a snuffer or gently blow it out. Avoid blowing directly onto the wax to prevent splattering.

  5. Avoid Drafts: Place your candle on a flat, heat-resistant surface away from drafts, fans, and open windows. Drafts can cause uneven burning and excessive smoke.

  6. Safety Precautions: Keep candles out of reach of children and pets. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Ensure the candle is placed on a stable surface and away from flammable objects.

By following these care instructions, you can enjoy a safe and satisfying experience with our wooden-wick candles while maximizing their longevity and unique charm.
