When you receive your candle the wick will be trimmed at about 1/4 inch. You will want to prepare to be able to allow your scented soy candle to burn for about 2 hours during your initial lighting. Keeping your candle away from drafts and on a flat surface will help achieve a safe and even burn. After about two hours you should notice what is called a wax pool over the candle that is even. You may extinguish the candle at this time and wait for it to regain it's solid state. Because we are dedicated to using only fragrance oils specifically formulated to perform well with soy wax, you can be assured that the aroma from your candle will linger.
Once you are ready to relight your candle, you will first trim the wick to again to be at the desired 1/4 inch. Scissors can be used for this task if you do not have a wick trimmer. Be sure you remove any wick remains and you are now ready to relight your naturally beautiful soy candle to fill your home with lasting fragrances formulated to enhance your senses.

If you do happen to have an accidental spill, the wax can easily be gotten up by using warm soap and water, another benefit of using a bio degradable wax.
