Getting a "good burn"
To get the most out of your candle, you will want to make sure that the wax burns down evenly with the wick. If the wick begins to tunnel down the center, leaving wax along the sides, you will not get as many hours of burn time out of the candle as you could.
To get a “good burn,” make sure that the wax melts all the way out to the edge each time you light it. For some larger candles, this can mean burning for 3 to 4 hours at a time to reach a full melt.
(Sometimes, a candle will need a few burns to really get going, so don’t be concerned if at first your candle doesn’t melt all the way to the edge. It will soon start to burn hotter and easily reach a full melt.)
Trim away the blackened and curled end of the wick after each burn, leaving about 1/4 inch of wick, and you’ll be sure to get many hours of beautiful light from your candle.
