Light your candle in a well-ventilated room, away from any drafts or fans as this can cause black marks, or rapid, uneven burning.
Burn your candles for one and a half to two hours at a time or until the wax has pooled to the edges. Burning for less time can cause the candle to 'tunnel', which leaves a build-up of wax around the sides and can reduce the maximum burn time.
Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings and matches, as debris in the wax can act as a secondary wick, which may cause your candle to burn faster than you’d like.
Always extinguish the flame with a snuffer, or just the candle lid will do! Avoid blowing the candle out.
Long, or crooked wicks can create high flames, smoking, or sooting. Trimming the wick to 5mm and chopping off any "bobbles" at the end (once the wax has set) following every burn is the easiest way to prevent this.
