For best results—up to a 50 hour burn!—leave the candle alight at least two hours before extinguishing. This will allow the wax to melt all the way to the edges and result in a cleaner, more efficient burn. Trim your wick to approximately ¼” before lighting your candle using the stainless steel Wick Trimmer—this prevents sootiness and prolongs the life of your candle! Try the Wax & Wool Matches while you’re at it. They come in a reusable (and refillable) glass bottle with a striking strip on the back.
