1.) TRIM YOUR WICK
Be sure to trim your candle wick to 1/4" using scissors or a wick trimmer for a clean, safe burn and increased candle lifespan. This helps reduce smoke mushrooming of the wick.
2.) LIGHT IT UP
Once lit allow the candle to burn to the outer edges of the jar to prevent tunneling. This is very important on the first burn since candles have a "burn memory".
3.) ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT [HOUSE] FIRES
Do not ever leave a lit candle unattended, and don't burn for more than 4 hours at a time. Place candlses a safe distance away from any flammable objects, drafts, and out of reach of pets and children.
4.) KNOW YOUR LIMITS
Stop burning your candle when only 1/4"-1/2" of wax remains. Lighting a candle without enough wax can overheat the jar.
