YOUR FIRST BURN:
Light the wick and burn until a complete melt pool has formed (melted wax has reached the sides of the vessel).
Cotton wicks take 3-4 hours; Wooden wicks take 4+ hours.
Trim the wick to 1/4" long for cotton and 1/8th for wooden. Light the wick. Make sure the wick remains centered as it burns.
Use the lid as a candle coaster and set your candle on a fire resistant surface.
Never burn a candle longer than 1 hour once a complete melt pool has formed for longevity and quality.
Stop using your candle when a 1/4-1/2 inch of wax remains in the vessel.
