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.
