How to burn a wood wick candle
1. Lighting the wick
Light the wick at the top and allow the flame to flow naturally down the wick. Make sure that the top surface of the wax melts all the way to the edge of the candle before extinguishing the flame — this may take between 30 and 60 minutes after lighting. A full pool of melted wax will keep the candle from tunneling, or leaving wax on the sides of the vessel.
2. Allow the wax to pool
Make sure that the top surface of the wax melts all the way to the edge of the candle before extinguishing the flame — this may take between 30 and 60 minutes after lighting. A full pool of melted wax will keep the candle from tunneling or leaving wax on the sides of the vessel.
3.Keep the flame away from moving air.
Do your best to keep your burning candle away from fans, air conditioners, open windows, or heavily trafficked areas where people walk back and forth a lot. Moving air can disturb the flame, leading to even more unsightly black marks on the glass.
4. When to stop burning the candle
When there is approximately 1/4 inch of wax remaining at the bottom of the vessel, extinguish the wick and recycle the vessel according to your local recycling center instructions.
5. Flame height
Your flame height may vary and may occasionally even appear to self-extinguish. Even a low flame will continue to heat, and the flame height should return shortly. Your Holy Spirit candle performs best when kept lit for 3 to 4 hours.
Safe Burning Tips
1. Keep your burning candle in sight and away from drafts. Always place it on a flat, heat-resistant surface when lit. Keep the candle away from children, pets, materials that can catch fire, and other heat sources.
2. Never move your candle while it is burning or still hot. Only move it once the flame is extinguished and the wax has cooled. Pouring or removing liquid wax from the vessel may cause the wick to extinguish and affect the future burn quality of the candle.
3. If your candle flame grows to over 1 inch high or the candle begins to smoke, then carefully extinguish the candle, allow the wick and wax to cool, and trim the wick to 1/4 inch. Remove and discard all wick trimmings before relighting the candle.
