A great candle experience begins with proper candle care and maintenance. Here are some important burning tips for enjoying your Wixi Candle:
PREVENTING MEMORY RINGS
As with all candles, the first burn is the most important. Ensure to burn it for a minimum of 2 hours and allow the candle to burn all the way to the edge. If the wax is not allowed to liquefy or to melt from edge to edge, it will create a “memory ring,” especially if this is the first time the candle is lit. Once a candle has this “memory ring,” it will continue to tunnel and to burn that way for the life of the candle.
CANDLES SHOULD NOT BE BURNED FOR MORE THAN THREE HOURS AT A TIME.
It is recommended after burning for 3 hours, candles are extinguished. This is to prevent the wick slanting and ultimately burning out. Candles must cool for a minimum of 2 hours before relighting.
KEEP THE WICK TRIMMED
We suggest trimming the wick every 4 hours of burn time. When wick trimming, you should always extinguish the flame, let the candle come to room temperature, and trim the wick to 1/8 of inch before relighting.
HOW TO LOVE YOUR WIXI CANDLE
FIND YOUR FAVORITE. There are lots of choices.
TRIM THE WICK. Keep your wick trimmed to 1/8" at all times.
LET THE WAX POOL. Each time you burn your candle, allow the entire top layer to become a fragrant pool of liquid wax and you'll get the biggest, boldest scent possible.
BURN IT SAFELY. Always burn your candle on a heat resistant surface, keep it out of drafts and NEVER leave it unattended while lit.
KNOW WHEN TO SAY GOODBYE. When only 1/2" of wax remains, it's time to let your candle go.
REPEAT STEPS 1 THROUGH 5. Keep going until you've tried them all!
