Burning Instructions for 100% Beeswax Candles
1. Burn your beeswax candles away from drafts, fans or open doors. This will prevent dripping.
2. Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch to prevent breakage. Always trim just after you blow out the candle while the wick and wax are still warm. Trimming a cold wick may result in the wick breaking off, which makes it difficult to re-light.
3. “Hug” your beeswax candles by pushing the outer wax towards the middle of the candle, evening out the surface. This will increase the longevity of your candle and ensure even burning. Hugging can be done carefully while the candle is lit or just after extinguishing the flame.
4. Extinguish your candle’s flame by carefully bending the wick until the flame enters the pool of wax. Be sure to gently straighten the wick afterwards while it is still warm to prevent breakage.
