How to properly burn a candle

Soy wax candles are a popular choice for many people due to their eco-friendliness and long burn time. To get the most out of your soy wax candle, it's important to follow a few simple guidelines to ensure it burns correctly and safely.

  1. Trim the wick: Before lighting your soy wax candle, be sure to trim the wick to about 1/4 inch. A long wick can cause the flame to be too large and can create soot, which can blacken the inside of the jar and potentially create a fire hazard.

  2. Burn the candle for the recommended amount of time: Wildwick candles come with a recommended burn time of around 4 hours, or until the candle is fully melted. It's important to follow this recommendation to ensure that the candle burns evenly and doesn't create soot.

  3. Extinguish the candle properly: To put out your soy wax candle, simply dip the wick into the melted wax using a wick dipper and then straighten it again. This will help to prevent the wick from smoking and will help to extend the life of your candle. 

By following these simple guidelines, you can enjoy your soy wax candle safely and get the most out of it. Just be sure to always burn your candle within sight, keep it away from flammable materials, and never leave a lit candle unattended.
