"Believe it or not, candles hold memories too"
How long can I let my candle burn?
The first burn of your candle is the most important. You MUST choose a time when you can let your candle burn disrupted for a minimum of 2 hours. This is extremely important, because believe it or not, candles hold memories. yes, you read that correctly. Once you blow it out your candle, it will retain what is called "burn memory." If you do not allow your candle to create a large enough melt pool (reaching all sides of the jar), the candle will start to tunnel, leaving wax residue along the sides of the jar, and it can even start to self extinguish. *If you do have to run out before two hours, don't worry we can fix your candle. wrap candle in aluminum foil, & burn for one hour, continually checking the candle.*
After the first burn, you can safely burn your candle for up to 3-4 hours at a time. as always, never leave a lit candle unattended.
When should I trim the wick?
You should trim the wick before each burn. trim the wick a ¼ to a ½ inch. Too small of a wick could cause your candle to tunnel. Too large of a wick can cause your candle to burn down too quickly, causing the wick to “dance.” This shows that the wax is not burning properly and may cause excess smoke. If this happens, blow out the candle, trim the wick, and relight your candle.
How do I retrieve my crystal from my candle?
We have included a pair of recyclable bamboo tongs with each candle that you can use to retrieve your crystal once your candle has reached it's full burning potential. Please always use the tongs to remove the crystal, as it will be hot.
Simply extinguish your candle, and using the tongs, remove the crystal from the remaining wax. You can run your crystal under hot water, and wipe with a paper towel to remove any excess wax.
