Candle Care 101
Below you will find my care guide to getting your monies worth from your candle with proper candle care 101!
- First Burn: Ensure to burn your AfterGlow candle for 3 hours on your first light. This is to ensure the wax melts out to the edge of the container, as coconut wax has a memory and will burn to the outside edges during each burn.
Burn candle at least one hour per inch of candle diameter each burn for best efficiency.
NEVER blow out your candles; this can cause soot, backsplash of candle wax on your face, and the worst of them all, you can blow the wax or flame onto the nearest combustible item; FIRE! We recommend using a candle snuffer to extinguish your candle. You an purchase a candle care kit in my store.
Before re-lighting your candle, be sure to trim your wick down to ¼ inch for a proper burn, and for a longer lasting candle, which includes excellent scent throw and increased burn time.
