Your candle wick should be trimmed to 1/4 inch every time you light your candle. This will ensure your candle burns evenly and remains safe from beginning to end. You may use a wick trimmer or a pair of scissors to trim the wick.
Please allow your candle to burn for 3-4 hours on the first burn or until the wax has completely liquified to the edge of the jar. Allowing the candle to reach full melt pool prevents your candle from tunneling.
