Instructions for Burning 100% Pure Beeswax Candles:
1. Trim wick to ¼” before burning, and immediately after snuffing out. It's important to trim the wick during or immediately after burning your candle. The wick itself becomes potentially fragile when cooled. Trimming a cold wick may break the wick off, making relighting it difficult.
a. Wick trimmers can be found online for less than $10. They can be used to both dip the wick into the molten wax to extinquish the candle and also to trim the wick directly after snuffing.
2. When burning the first time, burn for at least 1 hour per inch diameter of candle. This prevents tunnelling and helps ensure more wax is melted.

3. If the candle has less than 1/2" remaining let it burn out completely as you will not be able to relight it if you extinguish it.
4. Place votives and tealights in heat-proof glass holders (even small canning jars work well. They will burn more slowly and last longer.
5. Keep candles out of drafts and away from furniture, cabinets, etc.
6. Do not blow out candles: to extinguish candles, gently push the wick into the wax pool until the candle is extinguished and then pull the wick straight. You can use a small stick or skewer for taller container candles. Alternatively, you can use a candle snuffer to extinguish the candle flame.

Avoid handling the wick after it is cooled as it may break.
7. Keeping the Wick Lit: If your wick has gotten too short try to expose fresh wick by melting the wax around the wick and pouring it off. Once fresh wick is exposed be sure to burn the candle for an hour or more to get the candle back in balance.
8. Use Proper Candle Placement: Ideally candles should be spaced apart when burning, three or four inches is a good average range. This prevents each candle from unintentionally melting its neighbor candle or creating artificial drafts.
9. Wax Will Remain: The container may have some remaining unused beeswax after the wick has been fully burned. This is normal.

Care instructions

100% Beeswax Taper Candle Care:

Taper Holder: Tapers should always be securely placed in a taper holder and placed in a draft-free environment when burning.

Taper Wick Trimming: Before lighting the first time trim the wick to 1/4". Before relighting you may trim the very tip of the wick to remove any particles gathered in the wick. The wick generally trims itself as it burns. Trimming the wick too short may cause the candle to drip (it burns and melts the delicate side wall which contain the wax pool).

More Beeswax Taper Candle Care:

Taper Extinguishing: Use a candle snuffer to extinguish the candle flame mess free. This also ensures the burning wick does not touch the sides, which could weaken the side wall causing it to drip later.

Avoid handling the wick after it is cooled as it may break. Snuffers can be found online for less than $10.

Keep Tapers Vertical: Tapers must be perfectly vertical in their taper holder; if they lean to the side they will drip.
